Im gonna swatch out the pattern for THIS SCARF to see how it works with Bernat Denimstyle.
The first line of the pattern says "CO a multiple of 3 sts, plus one on each edge for selvedge".
What is selvedge? :??
A selvedge edge is an extra stitch at each edge of the scarf. It makes a nice even edge, and it's not counted in with the stitches. On the last scarf I did, I slipped the first stitch and knit the last stitch and it gave it a nice finished-looking edge.
Hi, this is usually called a selvage but I've seen it spelled selvedge too. Maybe it's a US/European difference?
It's just the edge of the fabric that's on the sides of the stitches.
Salieri, it may have been spelled that way on the pattern...I probably spelled it phonetically. Maybe Ill start pronouncing it that way, too...it'll make me sounds FANCY.
