Bias bands

These adapt well to curves and are also good for cut and sew. • Strips of flat, bias knitting can be attached directly to the edge. Curly fabrics, such as stockinette stitch, should be folded over the edge and sewn separately on both sides (Fig 1).The wrong side is sewn with a slip stitch. The right side, which is normally joined first, can be sewn similarly if the selvedge is good enough to show. Otherwise, use a ladder stitch, turning the selvedge in. Block flat if the work looks too bulky.
