I’m trying to make the Begonia shawl and im unfamiliar with “picking up” . The pattern literally says “k3, pick up and purl 88 stitches along the side of the piece”, But how do I do that if I still have my work cast on the needles? I’m so confused, please help!
Here’s exactly the first paragraph:
Cast on 3 sts, using the provisional cast on method.Work in garter stitch
until you have a total of 88 garter ridges.
k3,pick up and purl 88 sts along the side of the piece(1 st in each garter
ridge ),pick up and knit 3 sts from cast on ridge.
Now you have a total of 94 sts:3 selvage sts,88 body sts(pattern repeat
11 times),3 selvage sts.
Then it goes right in to the body. Im so lost.
