Jan, You sent the following Christening pattern which I’m doing.
The Picket edging is new to me and I’d like to understand it before I get to that part. After skirt is knitted - C.O. 17sts at end of row. K16, K2tog., turn (that’s 18 sts). Since it begins with 17 sts and then says 18 does this mean the edging is knitted at a right angle to the hem and that the 18th st. comes from and joins it to the hem? It must be something like that because it doesn’t mention sewing the edging to the hem. I know I’ll learn by doing it but need a little expert advice.
Also, what would be best to hold one row of 429 sts. picked up and knitted to the bodice? They indicate ‘needle’, singular. Will try a circular but don’t know if that will be enough.
