I'd like to do something like this:
XX| |XX| |XXXXXXXXXX| |XX| |XX
where the X's just represent knit stuff and the | | would be vertical slits. I'm going to try to explain, but I love diagrams, so I had to go for one!
I'm attempting to make a halter top. I want to make it backless, but not really backless. I'm knitting a front, and then I want to knit a two or three inch wide band that would go through the slits and tie across the back. Does this make sense? My question is, what's the best way to make the slits? I'm sure I could bind off and attach new yarn between them, but is there a "better" way?
