A woven zoom lens offers the advantage of complete elasticity to pull a polished garment without edge in the direction of the body. Knit hem is simple and is similar to making ropes to add decorative accents to your work.

Knit hem

A knitted hem consists of three parts: the siege, a rotating cam, and the actual zoom. On the last row of the zoom, you pick up a loop of the knitted cast on and work through it.

  • After folding board on the wrong side, insert right needle through the first st, then through the first loop of knitted CO.
  • Wrap thread work, then pull sts by the old and the CO loop.


  • Rep steps 1 and 2 without any skipping or CO st loops. Check the good side frequently to ensure that the zoom is not slanted from a CO loop have missed.


Working the accession row with a needle a size larger than that used for the main body of the work helps to avoid an unsightly "fold line" from forming on the right side of the work.

Knitting cord

Sometimes referred to as I-cord, knitted cord is one of the most versatile items that you can knit. Use it for tires, belts, applications, or edges.

  • Using DPN, CO required number of sts. Knitted cord can be processed in a profile, and with a number of stitches, depending on the thickness and fineness of the cord necessary. This example uses 5 st.


  • Work all sts. At the end of the row, instead of turning work, slide knit sts other side of the needle, pull working yarn across the back of solid work, and then work all sts.
  • Follow-knit and scroll until you find the length of the cord you made need. Break yarn and thread work by tapestry needle. Yarn tail through live sts and pull to close firmly. Pull the tail through the inside of the cord to hide it.
