PATTERN NOTES

Every 3rd row is an increase row where 5 new stitches are added.  New stitches are added with a YO on an empty peg.

When an empty peg is needed, insert a new link between the last stitch worked and the next stitch by pulling the links apart and snapping in a new link.  Work the YO on the first empty peg.  Then move each of the following stitches over to the next empty peg until the next YO is worked.

YO:  wrap an empty peg (e-wrap) to increase by one stitch.  On the next row, unwrap the peg leaving the loop to the front of the peg.  Knit the loop to create an eyelet.

Optional Crochet Edge

Insert a size 7 (4.5mm) crochet hook into the last stitch on the opposite side from the end of the BO. Attach the new working yarn by picking up a new loop on the hook. With the right side of the work facing while working from left to right, work the double crab stitch (double crochet stitch worked in the opposite direction) across the “side” edges to the other side of the shawl to the end of the bind off. Weave in ends.

  1. I’m confused as to how to add pegs, is there a possibility of a video? Can Renita explain “R3: K1, YO, *K1, YO, rep from * to last st, K1. (11 sts total)” a little more?

  2. I would like to see this done as well. I just work better if I can see how it is done.
