I am knitting a shawl based on a free pattern from Cascade Yarns.
I’ve done the body of the shawl. I’m supposed to start the edging, but I am stumped!
The pattern does not instruct me to bind off the body, but instead says:
CO 5 sts
1 - K2, YO, K2tog, SSK (with 1 stitch from body of shawl)
2 - Sl1 (purl-wise), K2, YO, K2tog
Work 2 rows across the bottom of the shawl (working 1 stitch
from shawl every other row (row 1) until you have worked
across all the shawl stitches.
Am I supposed to cast on an additional 5 sts. What am I to do with the 196 live stitches on my needles from the last row. I think I understand that I will gradually attach the edging to the body with the SSK in Row 1, but I can’t even get to that point.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
