I’m just getting ready to finish another sock and, as usual, am planning to seal the toes using the tried-and-true kitchener stitch.
But I started thinking…(going round and round the needles in stockinette while waiting for the foot to ‘grow’ to the proper length gives one LOTS of time to think!!!)
I recently learned the three-needle bind off for another project and was wondering if it can be used to finish the toe of a sock.
Both start with equal numbers of stitches on two parallel needles. Both create a row of ‘faux’ knit stitches. What’s the diff? What’s the advantage of kitchener over the three-needle? I assume there is an advantage since almost all patterns for socks seem to call for the kitchener to finish.
Now back to going round and round (and round and round and round and…)
