Here's an unusual neck band technique that is great for highly textured stitch patterns like garter carriage and tuck stitch.

Use reverse stockinette stitch for the public side of the bands.

This is a version of an industrial band - sometimes called a sandwich band that is perfect for cut and sew necklines. The technique can also be applied to shaped necklines.

If you are used to working this style of band in stockinette, this video works through the construction using the purl side of the bands as the public side.

Put on your thinking caps! Keeping things straight can be a challenge - right/wrong side, purl/knit side, public/private .. take it step by step for a beautiful faux garter band on the machine.
