    I found a lovely version of the 3 needle handoff that is less bulky. Set off to knit the first stitch on the front needle, switch the yarn to purl the back stitch and drop from needle, return yarn to knit mode and pull complete front knit stitch etc.

    I used this for seaming the shoulders of a knitted tank. It was easy and I think it have more support to the garment..
