Ready to Cut Steeks
For those who are knitting the Northwest Sunset Vest, the directions for what to do when you reach the end of the charts assume you know what you are doing. This is my first attempt at steeks, and though the book has good directions on how to cut them, it did not tell me what to do with my knitting when I finished the last row. After reading finishing directions for other sweaters in the book, I have un-knit my last row and re-knit it binding off the steek stitches. I put the shoulder stitches on waste yarn, basted a line up the center of the steek, And am ready to machine stitch. My fingers are crossed, on to the sewing machine!
