This is a method for joining a knitted hem that resuslts in a completely invisible finish. The process is very similar to Kitchener stitch, but not identical since you have only one row of live stitches to join to a row of purl bumps inside the knitted fabric.

Boccioli (blossoms in Italian) is an infinity scarf worked sideways to the desired length, followed by some grafting. Its boldest feature is in its simple lacework that’s enlivened by small bobbles in a contrasting, yet delicate, color. The lace pattern resembles the leaves of Italian heirloom zucchini, with flowers on the top of some branches, each one presented in different lengths to mimic a natural flowering pattern. The design has intentionally a vintage feel, reminiscent of old-hand embroidery with its small bobbles integrated in the lace stitches and the use of a color choice with mild contrasts.View Project
