FINALE EDGE

The final edge is a repeat of 23 sticth. On the edges,  increase the RS and WS of the work…

Follow the chart. I recommend to put a SM between every chart.

If you find more or less stitches, leave them at the beginning or at the end of the row, outside the repetitions of the chart.

Row 1 (RS): K2, YO, K 3,  put SM, *CHART, put SM*, repeat *to* for another 12 times, K end with YO, K2.

Row 2 (WS):. K2, YO; K to SM, slip SM, *CHART, slip SM* for all repetitions, K to 2 sts before end YO, K2.

As explained above, links to side always in garter sts. Repeat the scheme for the 299 meshes until the end.Finished the pattern of CHART B, if you have some wool left work in garter sts (K every sts)until having almost used up all the wool

LEGEND WARNING

Read the CHART form Rigth to left

K=  knit;  P= purl;  YO= yarn over;

SKP= slip 1, knit 1, pass slip stitch over;

k 2 tog= knit 2 stitches together

White squares are GARTER sticth, highlighted with the red grid.

But I recommend that you advance enough thread to do the

Picot Cast off.

In the first st.  *cast on 2 sts , loosely cast off 7 sts, replace the stitch back on your left needle * repeat from * to * until all STITCHES have been casted off.

Blocking= Hand wash, squeeze a little, dry flat,  pin the piece into shape.
