Go all the way around. When you get back to the hole where the first loop came through make one more chain stitch and then work the next row of slits by pulling a loop through the closest hole to the left of where you are.When you are finished tie working end to the beginning tail where you started. I know it sounds complicated, but it’s not and if you need help you can ask here or email me.
Things to remember:
- your slits don’t have to be perfect, they are going to stretch and you can’t tell if they are wonky
- This technique gathers the fabric, use a shirt that is larger than you normally wear
- crochet loosely, you want the neckline to remain stretchy
- you don’t have to used t-shirt yarn, you can just crochet the slits. This makes a smaller, rigid braid and more gathered fabric
- after you finish the first round you can switch directions with your crochet so the rows look different (that’s what I did)
- knit fabric doesn’t fray, so you don’t have to finish the edges, but you can
Have a super crafty weekend!!!
