That is what the pattern is calling for. I have sewed my panels together and need to pick up and knit 221 sts evenly "across top (cast off) edge but i'm not sure that that means. That is for top and bottom edging. Then side edging says i need to pick up and knit along 1 side edge.
If anyone knows of any videos that explains this I would really appreciate it. I just want to get this project as close to perfect as I can.
