|Taken from Stitch 'N Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook - Stitch 'N Bitch Superstar Knitting: "My son wanted a customized sweater, and he was very specific about it: zipper, skulls, and, of course, green skull eyes....I decided to use steeks because they are terrific for colorwork. The steeks are placed where the openings will later be cut, and you can always knit in the round, so no wrong-side colorwork rows have to be knit.The only downside to this method is that you can't try on the garment before cutting, and once you snip the steeks, there's no going back. This technique is not for the timid knitter, but I'll let you in on a little secret-steeking isn't as spooky as it seems."
