|Finished side straight off the machine: not yet washed, blocked, press or anything.|
No. So this is what I did:
Knit my back and took it off with a long circ needle.
knit the front and put the shoulder onto decker combs, (a garter bar would be OK too)
|Back goes onto the needles, wrong side faces the machine, public side faces me, BEHIND the latches.|
|Front goes on to the open latches|
|Flip the decker to vertical while holding the work so the stitch all roll onto the needle|
|Add a little weight on both pieces. Pull ALL the needles back so the back stitches are now on the front|
|just like this|
|I did bind off around the gate pegs|
The photo of it finished was very blurry, so I'll take another one and come back and put it in tomorrow. Which I've just done. Here they are straight off the machine, not yet washed, pressed or anything but I think it is a nice tidy and quick seam.
