In the never-ending attempt to have stockinette without curling, I’m knitting a sweater with a double hem. I think this is the term, I don’t know any of the proper terminology. Basically I provisionally CO stitches, knit stockinette for some time, then folded the bit in half, put the provisional stitches onto another needle, and knit the last row and the first row of stitches together (like a 3-needle BO without the BO) and continued on. This gives the appearance of just stockinette without rolling.
Now I am wondering if there is a way I can do this for the neck with a scoop-type neckline. I can think of one or two ways, but I don’t like them so much. One way is kinda fiddly, involving putting end stitches from the sloping part of the shaping onto stitch holders. The other is just knitting a double hem separately and then sewing it on. I thought maybe I could also pick up sts, leave them on onr needle, cut the yarn and pick up stitches from that, knit stockinette, then fold it over and do a 3 needle BO with the last row and the first row of sts. This is the way I’m leaning towards now, but I’m wondering if there is some other simpler or more natural way of doing this. Anyone know of anything?
