Tutorial for working a Double Knit Hem
Step 1- Set-up Row: Double your stitches, knit into the front and back of each stitch across row.
Step 2- All Additional Rows: Slip 1 purl wise with yarn in back, *yarn forward, slip 1 purl wise, yarn back, knit 1* to last stitch, purl 1.
After the set up row, 1/2 of the total stitches will be worked on each row and the other half will be slipped creating a double fabric hem. I like to finish off this type of hem using a sewn tubular bind off.
