I’m finishing off a ribbed hood with a rolled edge. I want to kitchner stitch it across the top.
I surfed around and saw that the regular kitchner stitch (which I’ve done on socks) is the KP,PK pattern, and that for purling you reverse that - PK, KP … correct?
My question is – because you start on one stitch, then slip it off for the second half of the kitchner chant … where/how do you switch for the ribbing?
My hood will start with 8 purls … so I would start with K,P on the first stitch, then start the chant PK, KP for those 8 stitches … but when I come to that last purl and the next stitches will be 2 Knits, do I switch the chant just after slipping off the last purl, but before the 2nd half of the chant where you go into the next (Knit) stitch? Or do I finish the ‘chant’ and go into the first of the knit stitches with the 2nd half of the purl chant, then switch?
to clarify what the top edge will look like, it’s 8 stitches purled (to roll back) then starts a 2x2 rib to the closed end of the hood.
I hope that isn’t too confusing. I don’t want to mess this up.
