It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Here’s some links I’ve collected to interesting techniques.
- Accentuated decreasing. A way to jazz up the edges of sleeves and necklines where there are decreases
- Russian grafting. This is more obvious in appearance than Kitchener stitch, but otherwise serves the same function. No sewing needles; all knitting needles.
- The Latvian twist is an edging worked flat that makes a nice set of pointy scallops. It uses what would ordinarily be a simple mistake to make the effect; some of my favorite techniques come from accidents and it wouldn’t surprise me if this were one of them.
- The single cable twist button band makes the buttonholes in the center of each cable loop. Spiffy!
- The appearance of a non-roll stocking stitch edge can be made with twined knitting.
