Bound off the shoulders and ready to ...
Crochet the steeks!. I've decided to crochet in order to secure them before cutting. What's a steek? Just extra knitted stitches designed to be cut open when a garment is being given the finishing touches. It is similar to the seam allowance around the sewing lines for fabric. This is where I cross my fingers & hold my breath!
When the steeks are cut after crocheting up one side & down the other, it is then turned to the inside and becomes the selvage. I think this is a pretty good discription on how to do the crochet steeks on the web:
"see eunny knit".
Wish me luck!
