How to work a last row with diagonal shoulder and cast off

Tags: good to know, jackets, jumpers, vests,

In this DROPS video we show how to work the last row where the shoulder is cast off diagonal, used in the «Unexpected» vest in DROPS 218-21. We have already worked 2 short parts and show only the last row and cast off on 1 piece.
Knit 1 row from the wrong side, to avoid leaving a hole in the transition where the stitches were placed on a thread, pick up the loop before the next stitch and knit it twisted together with the first stitch on the left needle. Then loosely cast off with knit from the right side. Repeat along the 3 other shoulders. Sew the shoulder seams inside the cast-off edge – make sure the seam is not tight.

This vest is worked in DROPS Alpaca Bouclé and DROPS Kid-Silk but in the video we work with only 1 yarn; DROPS Nepal.
