I've just got back from a Norwegian fjords cruise where I bought a beautiful sweater. When I examined it closely I found that the yarn had not been simply stranded across the inside, but was somehow fixed with a knitted stitch. I've searched the internet and KP but can't find anything like this. Does anyone know how this is done?

Eagerly awaiting someone's answer, because that's beautiful work on the inside.

Off the wall thought - you don't suppose a crochet hook is used to work all the stranding up to the top (or down to the bottom) in the same way we pick up stitches, do you? I almost want to make a swatch of very loosely stranded fair isle just to try that.

It definitely looks to me like someone did indeed single crochet the floats up the rows on the inside - there are smaller floats in between and the rows are uniform. This could be done by hand whether the sweater is machine knit or hand knit.

What do you think? The completely white chain was with a separate piece of yarn joined. The colored ones were with the existing floats. Needs work - I did it fast, and it may not be what was done on the original, but I think I might pursue this idea!

I also forgot to make the floats really loose.
