Taking Care of the Flip

When last we left The Refined Aran Jacket there was the issue of a hem flip. No more, thanks to Claudia's sage advice.

Claudia took one look and said, "too many stitches, decrease by 10%, and since it's such a narrow hem you may still have problems .... so why don't you try a rolled hem instead?" (I always listen to Claudia!)

Modification: With smaller needles cast on 10% less than pattern states. Purl one row, knit one row, purl one row, knit one row increasing 10%. Continue with pattern (RS).

I'm teaching this weekend. My dining room looks like it does every November, just check the archives. Many people will be arriving on Thursday for a turkey dinner. Apparently experience isn't my teacher :-)

  1. This year it will just be the 2 of us - for the first time (usually he's working/fire-watch). I rather look forward to it.
    However, it would be nice to have a houseful, too.
    Have a happy T-day!!
