Bump, as I'd like to learn the answer to this question as well. I'd like to make wintercoats with knitted ribbing on the cuffs. I've tried serging a handknitted swatch worked up on US 8 needles, but it did not turn out well. I'd like to get more information before trying it out again and wasting yarn.

google it. i know i've seen this done in a blog post somewhere. putting in a zipper I think it was. kind of a weird thing to use a serger for but I'm almost positive that's what it was. Also, try it on a swatch? =0) good luck!
