Project: Priest’s Stole –
I started each end and worked up, in order to keep symmetry in the cables and the stitches all facing the same direction. There are three cables across the pattern (4 st, 8 st, 24 st, 8 st, 4 st). The patterns contains 16 rows. Only the center cable (24 sts) uses all 16 rows, the others are repeats of 4 rows.
I plan to use Kitchener stitch to join the two pieces invisibly. Two questions for your wise counsel:
On what row should i stop knitting and commence Kitchener? For example, should side A stop on Row 1, and side B stop on row 2? OR should side A and B both end on row 16 (actually 15 to be the wrong side)?
Has anyone tried to use Kitchener on cables? advice? I presume to end both sides so that the Kitchener stitch is done on the wrong side will work best…
THANK YOU for your advice. I am working with Pure Silk (Debbie Bliss) and it splits and frays terribly – so i want to avoid errors, lest i make a mess of this gift.
