Hood Kitchener Question


I can't remember whose post it was, but I thought someone said they had added an extra row because they were kitchenering the hood ... is there a reason to do this? I feel like once you lost a stitch for a seam, you'd be in the same place binding off and seaming as kitchenering. But maybe I'm not figuring it right.

Right now I am thinking of leaving the hood stitches live on a holder, doing the button band in two pieces as called for in the pattern, then kitchenering the hood except for a short seam at the top of the button band. Please let me know if you think that isn't a good idea!

I'm just finishing the second sleeve and ready to move on to the button band (progress picture here) ... I'm excited!

Cara kitchenered her hood. Here is a link to her blog where she discusses her CPH.
