Anyway, the gist of it - I chose the hem from Paisley Print (it’s a no-band look from the outside – didn’t want a solid stripe across the hipline!) which is basically an every-other-needle for the back side of a hung hem, a row across of chainstitch which fills in the empty needles, eliminates the picot-look and makes a straight line of the turn/fold of the hem. It’s really the same hem technique that I used on Manfriend’s pullover on the LK150 back in December – on that, it was reversed to show the purl side which sort of looked ribbed…#9 from Band Practise; Hem with Chain Stitch, pg 98, The Handbook for Manual Machine Knitters (both by Mary Anne Oger, aka MAO).
Anyway, my hem works great, got the Back knit and AFTER taking it off the machine I saw that just around the point of the underarm shortrows, somehow DAK decided to switch the colours…what the??? Does it have something to do with leap year?? Arr-rr-r-rg-g-g-h-hh!!
I’m going to spiralize some zucchinis!
