What do I do with the extra stitch on each edge? :shrug:

Hard to tell from pic but could be they are slipped to form nice, clean edge. Or, you could crochet them with something like a crab st to add interest.

Hi,

When I make the scrunchable scarf, I always slip the first stitch and knit the last stitch of each row. The sides of the scarf turn out well – it is a nice finish and the scarf lies flat.

So, say on row 1, I slip the first stitch, stitch in pattern to the last stitch and knit it. Then when I turn the work I will be slipping the stitch that was knit on the previous row and at the end, knitting the stitch that was slippedon the previous row? It will probably make more sense when it is in front of me :slight_smile:

Yes. Just slip the first stitch as if to purl and knit the last stitch. Each edge will be knit every other row and you’ll get a nice chain edge.

Thanks Ingrid!

I’m going to try to get started on this pattern this evening - I appreciate your help :slight_smile:
