Doggone it ... I wish I could show you what I'm ending up with.
Here's what I've tried:
* At the end of the first "tooth," I had three stitches left on my Left needle @ the top of the tooth.
* I picked up 8 stitches along the right side of that first tooth with the left needle, and then moved 3 more over from the right needle.
* I then did: K2, Sl 1, K1 picked up stitch (a selvedge stitch), psso (3 stitches). Replace the 3 stitches onto left needle.
The only thing this does is leave me w/ one less stitch on the Left needle. (Basically I ignored the "(3 stitches)" comment, assuming that she meant there would be 3 stitches remaining on the right needle @ this point -- except for all those stitches that will eventually turn into teeth should we figure out how to do this -- and those were the ones to replace onto the left needle.)
So, I moved on to the next step:
(K2, Sl 1, K1, psso) 8 times
Except, I can't do it 8 times. I don't have enough stitches. I end up @ the top of the tooth with 2 stitches left, and all of the other stitches on the right needle.
So, I tried repeating the "replace the 3 stitches onto left needle" after each of the repeats I marked above with "**." That sort of worked, and it made a nice I-cord on the edge, but that left me w/ 3 stitches @ the tip of the tooth.
Her instructions then say to "REPEAT from row one," which would build another tooth. Now, if I just jump into this, I'm going to be diving back down to the edge of the shawl from the tip of the tooth, and that will fold the tooth & twist it. It seems like I should be working from the tip of the tooth down instead of from the bottom up, doesn't it?
