Tuesday’s Knitting Tip – Keeping the Facing of a Sweater Flat

Thank you to Theresa, our Customer Service Supervisor who shared this fantastic tip with us!

I love the look of stockinette stitch, but it will roll if it’s used alone as an edging. The solution: knit in stockinette for the public side of your work, and ribbing for the inside of the work.

Here, Theresa worked stockinette, then a purl row, then ribbing. She tacked the facing down with a few stitches and it lays flat beautifully. This technique will give you the clean look of stockinette without the headache of rolling edges!
