Sakiline äär/Chervron edge

Mahakudumine ei ole nii lihtne, nagu esialgu paistab. Üks tuttav kuduja kurtis, et mahakootud äär kisub, kuigi ta on proovinud maha kududa 2-3 numbri võrra jämedama vardaga. Tegelikult ei aita jämedam varras, tuleb appi võtta mõned nipid. Mahakudumiseks on mul vähemalt 3 viisi: tavaline, nn lõtv ja eriti lõtv. Viimasel ajal panen oma õpetustesse lõdva mahakudumise kirjelduse, kui seda on vaja. Ja neid viise saab omavahel kombineerida. Valik sõltub lõngast, aga ka sellest, kas on kaelus, varrukas, kampsuni või seeliku äär jms, ning sellest, kas tahame fikseerida või mitte. Mida aga teha, kui tahame säilitada sakilist äärt, nagu siin?
Bind-off is not as simple as it seems in the beginning. A friend knitter complained that the bind-off edge is too tight even if she tries to bind off with needles 2 or 3 numbers bigger. In reality, a thicker needle does not help and you have to use some tricks. I have at least 3 ways of bind-off: the usual one, the so-called loose one and the extra-loose one. In my recent patterns I add the description of the loose bind-off, if needed. And these techniques are combinable. The choice depends on the yarn but also on whether it is the collar, the sleeve edge or the edge of the sweater or a skirt and also on whether we want to make a firm edge or not. What shall one do if one wishes to maintain the chevron edge like here?
Kudum pole veel valmis, seega pole pestud, näete värskelt mahakootud äärt. Lõng on mohääri ja linase kombinatsioon. Tegin nii: viimases neljas reas kudusin pahemal pool parempidi. Siis seal, kus on mustri järgi 2 kokku (või 2 kokku ületõstmisega), kudusin 2 kokku ja siis kudusin maha. Seal, kus on mustri järgi 1-st silmusest 3, kudusin maha lõdvalt. Muudel juhtudel kudusin maha tavaliselt. Äär ei kisu ega veni. Nii lihtne see ongi!
The garment is not finished yet and, thus, has not been washed, what you see is a freshly bound off edge. The yarns are mohair and linen. I did the following: in the 4 last rows I worked knit stitches on the wrong side. Then where we have k 2 tog (or s1, k1, psso), I made the decreases in the usual way and then bound off. Where we have 3 st out of 1 st, I bound off 3 st loosely. In all other cases I bound off in the usual way. The edge is not too tight neither too stretche. It is as simple as this!

What a gorgeous color :))
I like to BO purlwise if possible. I like the edge it creates. I want to learn to close with needle at some point. Also, to avoid tight BO sometimes I use bigger needle for BO row, especially in shawls.

Mia, kiitis!

Diana, thank you, yes, this is 100 % my colour. Closeing with needle is best for 1 x 1 rib, they say (I have no opinion because I almost never use rib:)). Yes, BO purlwise is a nice option as well.
