Disclaimer: I’m very new to knitting. Like really new… And also new to crocheting.
The knitting pattern I have uses this really pretty “crocheted scalloped edge” at the start and end of the blanket. The instructions (below) make sense to me for the ending edge. But how do I accomplish this at the start, when I’m just casting on?
If someone could point me to a tutorial or tell me what I might Google around for, that would be immensely helpful. I want to nail the beginning so I can get to knitting the rest of the blanket.
“Crochet Scalloped Edge
Begin crocheting scalloped edge in your bind off row. (Remember to go through both
legs of your bind off row.
Single crochet into 1 stitch, *skip 2 stitches, 5 double crochets into next stitch, skip next
2 stitches, single crochet into next stitch, repeat from *. End by working a slip stitch into
first single crochet. Note — at the corners of a square, work your count so that you work
the double crochet stitches in the corner. I found that working 8 single crochets (instead
of 5) made a nice corner.”
