Finishing your project with a folded hem edge - also called Quilt Binding or Blanket Binding - is a great way to achieve a polished look. Stitches are picked up and knit all the way around, increases and decreases are worked to create mitered corners, and the hem is sewn down to the back side, creating a smooth and tidy edge with comfortable stretch. You can add this detail to cardigans (like Nine Patch), blankets, and more. Julie has a few tips for getting it just right.
