BLIND HEM



I found this technique among papers with a machine i bought several years ago. No author, so I can't give credit for it, but it does produce a nice invisible hem!

Note: Tension means Garment Tension

Tension - 1 dot or -2 dots means reduce the tension only 1 click below garment tension, not one whole number. Same if it is written, + 1 or +2 dots.

Method:
Cast on EON with waste yarn, knit several rows, ending with COL
K 1 row Ravel cord.
Pull these needles all the way out to Hold position.

RC000 Cast on Ewrap on these (EON) needles
Tension -1 dot, K 6 rows on these needles

RC006 Pull 1st needle out to hold, **skip next needle, bring 3 needles out to hold,** repeat from ** to ** across. Set machine to Slip, and Knit 1 row (the needles you brought forward to hold will knit and the ones in B position with slip). Take slip buttons off

RC007 Pull ALL needles out to hold, Tension -2 dots, wrap 1st needle, and knit 12 rows (or depth of hem)

RC019 Tension -3 dots (one full tension less than garment Tension), K 2 rows

RC021 Tension -2 dots, K 14 rows

RC035 Move 3rd needle from left and then every 8th needle out slightly to edge of latch, pick up slipped st from 7th row above for spot hanging
T+2 points, K 1 Row

RC036 Tension +1 dot, K1 Row

RC037 T- 1 Dot, Knit 4 rows

RC041 Tension +1 Dot, K 1 row

RC042 Bring EON slightly out starting with 2nd needle on left, pick up and wrap from cast-on rown and hang on EON
Tension +1 whole number (3 dots) Knit 2 rows

RC044 Tension +2 dots , K 2 rows

RC046 Tension +1 dot, Knit 2 rows

RC 048 Garment Tension, continue with garment
