Ok so lots of posts from me today, I guess I’m getting all my questions out at once!
So I have a pair of Ove-Gloves. You know, the hot pads shaped like gloves with all of the fingers to make handling hot things in the kitchen real easy? Love 'em. Anyways, their machine knitted of course, all in stockinette stitch. Around the wrists is “ribbed” for a snug fit…but the ribbing is all stockinette, theres not one purl stitch in there. I’ve stretched it and looked at it real close and just cannot figure out how they did that. Is it a trick that can only be done with machine knitting? Is is some sort of stitch twisting illusion? I’m intruiged!
