Monday Mini Tip - Loopy Edging

Last week, I released Capri which is currently 25% off. No coupon code needed. The discount is valid until 26 August (not October as I said in my newsletter last week - apologies for that mistake). Read more last week's blog post about Capri.

For Capri I worked the centre triangle first and then I picked up stitches to knit the lace border. The centre triangle is worked from the bottom up and starts with just one stitch. The easiest way to cast on one stitch is to make a slip knot. On every row, I started with a yarn over (aka yarn forward). 

After I've finished the centre triangle, I picked up stitches in the yarn overs along two edges and worked the lace from the top down.

In today's Mini Tip video I show you how to work a yarn over at the beginning of a row. I demonstrate how to do this both in continental style and English style knitting. I then show you how to pick up stitches in the yarn overs.

You can also watch the video here.
