Decisions, Decisions

In the "nothing hard is ever easy" category, I did a fair bit of noodling with the seams of the BSJ this weekend, even once I decided I wanted to join them with a three-needle bind-off.

First try, picked up loops to the inside of the garment, using yarn to match the ground stitches. Bound off with right sides facing/wrong side out.

Nah.

Second try. Better, much better. Picked up loops to the outside of the garment, using yarn to match the ground stitches. Bound off with wrong sides together/right sides facing out.

Except I don't like that little grey line running through,

Last try, same method as above, picking up all the stitches using the contrast color.

Hey presto, indeed.

I like that! It didn't even occur to me to do it that way, I just mattress stitched it (and it's just kind of "eh").

I love the red accent against the grey - very nice!
