I’ve just finished a sleeveless pullover/vest in Noro Blossom. It is knit in reverse stocking stitch (stockinette) and the friend that I have made it for wants to be able to wear it either way around as she is not sure about the reverse effect. I love it but there you go: it shows up the knubs of colour really well.
Anyway, I want to try and create invisible seaming. I know that I can use mattress stitch on the side seams, so that should be ok. I haven’t ever tried three needle bind off but I had intended to use it on the shoulders, but I’ve read that it is not invisible. So, then I thought to try kitchener stitch. I had left the stiches on holders but then bound them off before I realised that grafting needed then free still…
So, a couple of questions. Can I unpick the bound off stitches and still graft them? Will it be a strong enough seam: the garment is quite light. Or, can I try using mattress stitch on the shoulder seam as it is?
Any advice gratefully received!
