Hello fellow knitters,
I joined up a few days ago and have been having a great time getting acquainted with the site. I have a question, though, that I hope someone can help me with. I've just finished the main knitting on a fair isle sweater and it's time to cut the steeks. I keep reading that if the yarn is 100% Shetland, you can cut the steeks without reinforcing them. I'd love to do that as I'm a horrible crocheter, but it makes me a little nervous. Does anyone have personal experience with just cutting up the middle of the steek?
If this has been covered a hundred times before, please forgive my asking it again.
