How to work a loose part of a jacket band separately.

Tags: edge, garter stitch, jackets,

In this DROPS video we show how to work a loose part of a jacket band separately, and then sew it on the front piece afterwards. We have already worked the neck in rib with a buttonhole and 5 garter stitches in each side. These band stitches are worked in GARTERS and put on a stitch holder. Cast on a new stitch on each side, which will later be cast off = edge stitch which is worked in garter stitch. Work the back piece in stockinette stitches and increase according to pattern. Then work the loose bands to the correct size before putting them together with the yoke, then also cast off the edge stitches. Remember to cast off for buttonholes.
Sew the bands neatly inside the 1 edge stitch on the yoke.

We use the yarn DROPS Snow in the video.
A band like this is used in the «Scent of pine Jacket» in DROPS 215-7, you can find the pattern by clicking on the picture below.

I do not understand the Garter St. (Back and Forth on needle). I have watced the videos and read the instructions. But still don't know what it means. Please can you help?

Dear Mrs Perkins, the video shows from 01:45 how we work the stitches in garter stitch (= back and forth), ie knit all stitches on every row. Happy knitting!
