Great video. Now I know how to hem the knit shirt I am going to make. Thank you.

I actually prefer this method to the "real" coverstitch! The "real" coverstitch hem eventually pulls out because I haven't figured out a way to lock the stitches when I use the overstitch function on my serger.

I wish there had been a close-up of the stitches both front and back when you finished.  This is a great technique, however.  Thanks.

Thank you for the demo, I learned something important. I hope that you will do some of these in the future.

Thanks for the demo.  I've been sewing for many years, but haven't used twin needles for years and had no idea there were twin stretch ones.  Certainly I'll be using this on my next knit dress!
