Am delighted to be knitting a baby shawl for my first great grandchild but it’s +20 years since I last made one. I’m using Patons Fairytale square shawl pattern and have come to a halt on making up the seams. The instructions say ‘sew through loops very loosely in herringbone stitch’. Can anyone show me how this is done please?
Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your great grandchild!
That’s wonderful news and you’ve made a gorgeous shawl to welcome the new baby. Here’s a video for the herringbone seam. You don’t have to form loops by releasing a column of sts as in the video. You already have loops at the edge of your two sides.
It’s a delight to see your beautiful work.
Lovely shawl. We’d love to see a pic when you’re finished too.
Hope the seaming goes well.
