I have finished knitting my sweater. I tried it on and it is about 4 inches too long. I have been told all I have to do is cut it and pick up the stitches then finish off down and do the ribbing. Has anyone done this before?

Instead of cutting to shorten a garment, I decided how long I want it plus the waistband inches. Inside the sweater, not at the seam edge, snip a stitch and unravel the part you don't want, pick up the stitches and knit the band.

don't be afraid....sometimes, when in a 'quick' mood, I make my ribbing, hang it on the knitting machine, knit a straight yard of fabric, (do this 4 times, back, front, and 2 sleeves) take it off and block it (this reduces raveling) and then use my t-shirt pattern to sew up a sweater...sometimes you just want it DONE....but at least this tells me you can cut your sweater if you want to try..
