I finally managed it!


A provisional seam that unzips as I sew it up!

I've crocheted innumerable provisional seams, and this is the first time it unzips properly.

I just wonder how the hell I did it...

Rats - I was hoping you could show me how you did it!

I've never been successful with the crocheted provisionally either. I always knit a row with dental floss - it pulls out easily.

I was reading just the other day about this. It is all about which particular loops you knit into. Now of course a sensible person would have noted and REMEMBERED which loop it was that one ought to knit into, but I am not sensible.

PS, I like Brenda's method myself. I have used Judy's Magic Cast on occasionally and have also sucked it up and pulled out the last row. It just depends on what it going on in the work.

I don't understand it but...yay!...it worked! I know that must be pretty cool! Can't wait to see the completed sweater. :-)

Too funny!! I just did that, too - did provisional cast ons for two sleeves: one was a mess, handpicking out every stitch, but the second unzipped liked a charm -

no idea what I did differently...

I hate doing something that works and I think, Oh, I'll remember THIS! Yeah, right.
