help with edging
here's what i want to do:
knit a series of panels and then join them to k=make an afghan.
here is my problem:
i'm a crappy joiner. and cann't stand havinga whole afghan on my lap/needles at a time.
my great ides:
an edging on each side of the panel that would leave
distinct holes along the vertical edges so i could lace the panels together.
i thought like k1,yo, k2t the pattern k2t,yo,k1
would do the trick.but it doesn't seem to work.
what am i doing wrong?
when i check afghan patterns either you knit the whole thing as 1 piece, balancing like 200 stitches per row
or you knit panels and then finish by 'join the panels together'-- but how do you get a nice even seam(mattress stitch of course) with all the elements nice lined up?
thanks for help
