There is an instructional video, a fun extra to give a girl courage, available to subscribers that demonstrates the honeycomb stitch along the top and bottom edge.
This was my second time to knit something for warm weather. I wasn't sure how the Comfy Sport cotton/ acrylic yarn would wear. But, it is very lightweight and doesn't seem to have stretched out much with wear. I was a little nervous about weaving in all of those cotton ends because they don't "grab" onto the fibers around them like wool does. So, I found two ways online to handle them:
1. Split each individual end in half and tie them around a purl stitch "bump" on the inside, pull tight, and trim.
2. Split in half and weave each half separately, skimming (or splitting and sewing through) the purl heads of several stitches in a row on the reverse side before making a u-turn and skimming through the purl heads of an adjacent row from the opposite direction. That makes no sense, so watch the tutorial if cotton end weaving fascinates you.
I said mature knitter, but actually I still had four ends or so hanging commando on the inside as I took these photos - it was taking forever!
My knitting photos are always a sort of Where's Waldo in which you can search the photo to find the loose yarn ends sneaking out of various openings. Below, is my tribute to all of the knitters who've edited out yarn ends.
If only I had waited for her reply. (By the way, thanks for replying, Allyson!) Turns out Allyson just ties a few knots away from the edge of the garment on the inside and trims the ends when there is positive ease. No splitting. No maturity. That's even easier than option 1!
Why didn't I listen to my inner voice or at least wait for direction? Anyway, one million yarn ends later, I am an expert at skimming and love my Umbre Lovre.
