How to Join Live Stitches to the Side of a Knitted Piece

How to Join Live Stitches to the Side of a Knitted Piece

Kirsten Hipsky shows you how to joining live stitches to the side of knitted piece. This is a similar technique to a three-needle bind off. As you pick up a stitch from the side of a knitted piece, knit it together with a live stitch from your other piece, then binding off.

This is a great technique to use when you need to join drop-shoulder sleeves to the body of a sweater such as the Kohl Lace Pullover and The Space Heater Sweater.

Other projects where this technique comes in handy are the Multi-Directional CowlRhea Lace Stole and scarf.
