Have any of you ever heard the term "faggoting" in connection with knitting? This appeared in a book on circular knitting. It gave no explanation--just referred to it like it is a part of the garment.
"Faggoting is a variation of lace knitting, in which every stitch is a yarn over or a decrease. There are several types of faggoting, but all are an extremely open lace similar to netting. Like most lace fabrics, faggoting has little structural strength and deforms easily, so it has little tendency to curl despite being asymmetrical. Faggoting is stretchy and open, and most faggoting stitches look the same on both sides, making them ideal for garments like lacy scarves or stockings." (from a well-known information site)...
(from me)...in embroidery or heirloom sewing, its that little line that looks like a series of open squares...mostly, it is used to join two different pieces of lace or fabric or ruching, etc.....I have never heard it referenced in terms of knitting, but clearly, I learned something new today!
