Did anyone see this technique on Knitting Paradise today. If you didn’t go to the link posted below. I decided I had to see if this worked. Well, I think I did it right. However I only used 30 stitches and not 60 and I did not knit a long sample. The first picture is how it looked after I took it off the machine. If I pulled the edges out I could get them to stay but that was not the point. I was disappointed until I steamed the sample swatch. The edges come out very nice and you don’t have a wavy edge . It comes out pretty square also if you were doing an afghan. I used all one color because her video shows two colors. I think this would be nice on the edge of a scarf also. I actually think this would be nice on the sides of a sweater for blocking but I think the seam would be too thick. This technique states the no roll slip edge for single bed machines. It is a handy idea and I will file for future reference. I encourage you to try it to see if you like it though.
