    1. To knit with a reverse stitch. 2. Thread made of twisted gold or silver wire. 3. To flow with a curling or rippling motion as a shallow stream does over stones.

Merdel, your knitted fabric is really pretty and gorgeous. I cannot wait to see a photo of you in it. Also, I like Liana's suggestion. It would cut the time by a lot. How clever you are, Liana!

Mardel, This is just fabulously gorgeous! I like your fringe idea. I wonder if on the inside, if you just want to secure your ends without so much bulk (and work) you might use a strip of tricot (like the wider Seams Great) on the top and bottom of your ends, and just triple zigzag up and down the sweater, sewing over just the ends of the yarns? You probably have a REAL plan. Can't wait to see the finished effect!
