An urgent question for all of you: I'm making a cardigan for my grandma. Just in case it matters, I'm using bulky yarn and size 10.5s, but the resulting fabric is still very drapey and not stiff. Soon I will need to sew on Scandinavian-style pewter hook-and-eye closures to finish it.
How does one sew embellishments onto one's knitting? Should I be trying to loop the thread around the yarn in the knitted fabric, or through the yarn itself? Am I dead in the water if I don't reinforce the cardigan edges with a length of sturdy ribbon on each side? Advice, please!
