I learned about this in a class from Viking educator, Alix Graham-Michel. Most serger rolled hems are with one needle. This is with two needles, both the left and right needle left in. You set up the serger as usual for a rolled hem but use both needles and 4 threads. It works! She said she discovered this because she was too lazy to take out the left needle. I think it gives a very strudy rolled hem and in this picture I used it on fleece.

Yes, 4 threads. Upper and lower loopers and both needles.

I'm one of the dumb ones, not let's get this straight. Two needles, each carrying a thread. Now how many other threads, like a upper and lower looper. Is that right? Thanks

The example in your picture still says 3 threads. I'll try this. Thanks.

Sorry, yes it takes 4 threads. I did edit this.

So how does it work? Using three thread and both needles, which one gets threaded?

Very interesting! Yes, I would like to know if you mean using 4 threads instead of 3 as well.

Wouldn't you need 4 threads? I am confused.
