Soleil: It's Time for Summer!

I have finished and blocked Soleil from This sweater used 5 skeins of Rowan Cashsoft Baby DK in crocus.

Since taking the picture I have added another row of single crochet to the arm holes to keep the sweater from curling so much. After trying to wear this sweater under a cardigan yesterday I am finding the sweater not very wearable. Every time I lift my son up the sweater pulls down and I end up flashing everyone. I feel like the sweater just barely covers what needs to be covered with the result that I end up pulling it down or up all of the time. I am considering adding some croched lace to the neckline. What is a girl to do? Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Hi. My humble idea ( I have not tried it before) is to knit or crochet a firm lace edging to the neckline as you suggested but add reinforced thread to it. I think if you knitted an edging of icord with a decorative edge after the fact or even just a simple combination of K1P1 would tighten it up. The reinforcing threat would be an added measure. If you do try this, let me know if it works. I'd love to know for my own future reference.

Have a great day!
