Step Two

April 20, 2012

After our cast-on, it’s time to work the Picot Pattern stitch.

The first ten rows are very straightforward. After you complete row 10, be sure to undo your provisional cast on and place all your stitches on a spare needle.

This step is important because you are about to create a picot hem, by knitting row 11 together with row 1.

After you finish working row 11 with row 1 your beautiful picot hem will be complete.

The Picot Edge from the right side of the fabric.

For row 12 you simply purl across the fabric, just be sure to decrease one stitch so that the lace pattern has the appropriate number of stitches.

The Picot Edge from the wrong side of the fabric, note the purl ridge.

Well, Spud & Chloë Pals, that is all for this step. Next week we will tackle the first lace pattern as well as inserting lifelines into our lace.

How did creating the picot hem go? This technique results in such a polished edge that it makes the provisional cast-on even more worthwhile.

Be sure to see me in the Spud & Chloë group on Ravelry if you run into any problems.

Happy Knitting-along Pals!
