The first section to be knitted is usually the band, cuff, hem
or basque. I will call it a band in this book. More often than not,
the band will be in some kind of rib, probably because rib stitches
are denser and stronger and donít curl.
The bands at the side seam of the garment will look neat and
professional if the edge stitches to be joined are alike, knit to
knit, or purl to purl [pic 1].
