So, I am making Bec Brittain’s Hazel the Humpback Whale. Ravelry: Hazel the Humpback Whale pattern by Bec Brittain
The pattern calls for intarsia-in-the-round, but I chose to do it in a single color. However, I am still curious about the technique and would like to know whether you have a preferred trick. There are plenty of videos out there, but I would like to know your personal preference.
Next, for the body, the pattern says putting 7 stitches on hold for row 184 and “[taking] the 7 stitches that are on the holder and [whipping] stitch them together to form the little fin on the
back of the whale’s body.” I finished the body and did not know what to do with the stitches. Exactly how should I do the whip stitch? I can see the small fin formed from the pictures people share for their projects, but I do not know how to get there.
