I completed a blanket for a twin size bed… A simple stockinette pattern. It looks fine-- however I want to increase the length of the blanket. As I was searching for some answers, I stubbled upon this person’s advice.:
[I]You can undo your work, but there is an easier way.
Just pick up stitches on the finished edge- this is done all the time at armholes for some sleeve types, at the neckline for some collars, and around the sides to add knitted edgings.
Insert the needle into the first stitch, yarn over and pull through - that creates a new loop onto the needle
continue inserting and pulling up stitches for each stitch in the row,
Then just knit in whatever pattern you have chosen.
I thought I would use this technique. What do you think?
