i’m trying to finish a sweater that has me beaten down. it’s a garnstudio pattern that was horribly written so i had to make some adjustments to make it work and not drive myself absolutely crazy. anyways…i’m finally almost done and i have one very long seam to work, 180 stitches on both pieces. they are cast on edges that need joining, so no active stitches.
i’d like something relatively invisible from both sides if possible, and the idea of sewing it all leaves me wanting to not finish the sweater. i am contemplating a three needle bind off, but that would require picking up 360 stitches, which also doesn’t thrill me, but am willing to do. i am having trouble figuring out which side/direction to pick up the stitches i would need to work the 3NBO and have the working yarn in the right place. can anyone give me any help on that? or any other hints on how to do it without pulling out all of my hair?
btw, i’m knitting with debbie bliss cashmerino aran on size 8s. it would be heartbreaking to frog it all, esp since i’m so close to being done with it!
thanks for any help!
