How do you pick up and knit stitches around your neck?
For horizontal edges: Insert the knitting needle through the center of a stitch below the bind-off chain, wrap or pick the working yarn, and pull it through the stitch to the front. Picking up through the center of a stitch on horizontal edges creates continuity from the sweater body into the neckband ribbing.
