In this DROPS video we show how to work a double neck edge and bands which are used in the «Love Links» jacket in DROPS 217-18. We have already worked 9 cm to the neck edge.

On row 1 we show how to cast off 6 stitches (= band), knit over the next stitches and increase at the same time new stitches evenly over these stitches. Work rib over the last 6 stitches + 1 edge stitch in garter stitch.

On row 2 we show how to cast off 6 stitches (= band), purl over the next stitches, purl yarn over twisted = no holes. Work 1 edge st in garter st in each side.

Then work the yoke, read a pattern for further information about increases, marker and charts.
Then knit up stitches along the bands, remember buttonholes. Then sew band to neck edge inside 1 edge stitch with seam in towards wrong side of garment.
Fold rib at the top of neck double in towards wrong side of garment. Sew together opening mid front with small stitches.

The jacket in DROPS 217-18 is worked in DROPS Merino Extra Fine, but in the video we use a thicker yarn; DROPS Snow.
