  • Brilliant, thank you.

  • I love the way a folded hem looks with a picot edging on cuff-down socks. I don’t do that nearly often enough.

  • Great tutorial. The video and the description was well done. Thank you. Love the fold down edge.

  • Do I see SEVEN double points? Thats enough to scare me back to bed.

    • Hehehe! I used double-pointed needles in the photo tutorial, but in the video you’ll see I’m working on circulars so there are fewer needles to juggle. I hope it helps to see the different options. 🙂 And yes, it is a little like wrestling a hedgehog with double-points, but I can’t help but love them nonetheless… 😀

  • I love a folded hem! Excellent instructions.

  • Love it – saved too!

  • Love it — can’t wait for the downloads and book!! Very excited for the hand dyed options — I pick out my wines based on their clever names 🙂 — therefore I think these hand dyed options will be great! ….Our four hand-dyers are Dusty Dimples, Fab Funky Fibres, Old Maiden Aunt and Third Vault Yarns 🙂

  • Oooh, I want to try these mitts! One of my favorite hats is Leni by Isabell Kraemer, mostly because of its folded him. I pulled her pattern out just last month to add the folded hem instructions on to another hat!

  • Great fun – turned out beautifully. Thanks to Jen Arnall-Culliford for the wonderful video tutorials and great support!

  • Fantastic, I worked baby sweaters from Dale Garn for years and continue to bring out my old copies, but I love this technique. Thx

  • I like to leave a spare needle in the live sts after the provisional cast on and knit up with new needle. That way when it’s time to join the hem to the body I just pull out the crocheted waste yarn and the live sts are already on a needle ready to work. No picking up required.

  • I happily followed along but was lost when the magic loop method showed up. Hard to follow along for me at that point. I think it was such a small project and since I donor we use magic loop, I just felt lost.
