Steek Sandwich

Kate Davies Designs
Knitting
April 2012
Worsted / 10 ply (9 wpi) ?
4 stitches and 5.5 rows = 1 inch in stocking stitch in the round
US 7 - 4.5 mm
100 - 150 yards (91 - 137 m)
one size

This method - called the steek sandwich - creates a neat facing which is particularly useful for finishing off edges, such as those at the front opening of a cardigan or around a shawl or blanket. The sandwich also acts as reinforcement for button bands etc.

The pattern for a headband teaches several different techniques - crocheted reinforcing, cutting, steek-sandwich-creating, applied i-cord and buttonholes - techniques with multiple applications which together lend a really professional-looking finish to any knitted garment or accessory.

This pattern was used to teach a Steek Sandwich workshop in This is Knit, Dublin in April 2012.
