what if you want to get rid of your ribbing cuff or bottom of your knitted piece for any reason?
what if you want to replace the ribbing part or bottom part of your old knitted piece?
Actually It has happened with me that I have knitted an Aran poncho , and after I finished the first piece- which was lot of work- I didn't like the bottom. I have learned this technique to get rid of the bottom.
Here are the pictures to know this technique.
Suppose this small piece represents your knitted piece. the brown part is the bottom, and the yellow part is the rest of your knitted item. I have used two colors to show you which part you will cut . So that brown part is the bottom, and the yellow is the rest which we will keep.
Be careful NOT to cut the yellow yarn.
please try this in small swatch before you do it with your knitted piece. Hope it is useful.
