Attaching on every row

I knit half the neckband yesterday before realizing my gauge is a bit off, and now I need to frog the whole thing and start over on smaller needles. D'oh!

But my question is - I'd like to try this time attaching the neckband to every row instead of every other. I just can't figure out how to do this on the WS row. Can anyone tell me how you did it at the beginning of a WS row? Maybe I need to have both stitches on the right needle and do a k2tog or something, but I'd like to know a tried & true way before I mess up this crazy sweater even more. Thanks!!!

I attached the band at EVERY row. SSK on the right side (end of row), purl 2 tog. through the back loops on the wrong side (beginning of next row). It gives a smoother, no holes join while at the same time accomplishing the equivalent of k2tog all the way around the body piece.

Thank you, Marlene! It's working very nicely, and I think this crazy sweater might actually fit me when I'm done with it. :)
