Thanks, I will try the 3 needle bind off. I am doing the "Not so Basic Sweater" from Beyond the Basics, by the Yarn Girls. On youtube I found a video of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHsN3OJXPmg
how to join an arm, however you can't see what she is doing very well.
My question, the stitches do not line up horizontally as they do on side seams. Under the armpit they are vertical and then as I go toward the shoulder, the body is horizontal and the arm meets the body at a right angle. I have to make my stitch from the top and bottom on the "ladder in between two knit stitches" on the arm. This doesn't make an invisible join as it does on the side seam.
Is there a better way then suggested on the video.
