WOW!!!! Thank you VERY much for this link. It is EXACTLY what I needed. (Not that everyone else's input was not helpful and appreciated, the thought process actually allows me to grow as a knitter). But chapter 22 deals exactly with my issue. Having said this, if anyone else has any other suggestions, please keep them coming!
One thing though: having read the chapter, it does not show the back side of the seam suggested. I'm assuming that the reverse side shows a prominent seam. I realize that my issue cannot be resolved seamlessly. Has anyone ever done this stitch? Can you tell me from experience or simply reading the page what you think it would look like?
