And so, I'm renovating a couple of recent knits. First up was Lacey. After 3 trial runs I realized I didn't like the shirt tail hem. On me that is. Some knitters might groan at the thought of that re-work. But I'd rather have it right.
To do the reno I threaded a contrasting thread through a row of stitches just above the last short row . Then I cut. Once cut, I picked up the stitches and knit down, finishing off with ribbing versus what was there before - curling garter.
All this was done in the round.
At the ribbing though, I knit each piece back and forth in order to leave a tunic-like split at the sides. Thinking of those hips again.
