    If you use this picot edge stitch for a baby blanket, how would you adapt it for the sides of your work?

    I love your instructional videos……Thank You!

      I would probably make the edging separately and then sew it on later.

        Would it not also be possible to pick up stitches along the side and then work the picot edging? I think I’ve done something at least similar to that before.

        • Johnny Vasquez

          No because the picot edging is worked from the bottom up. If it were top down, then yes.

    I learned to work yarn overs by bringing the yarn forward first and then over the needle when working a yo after a knit and before another knit stitch, but I see you work yarn overs in reverse (back first and over the needle to the front. Is that what requires a ktbl on the next row?

    • Johnny Vasquez

      January 11, 2013

      Yes. Both work just fine though. You probably wouldn’t need to ktbl on the next row with your method. Your method will produce a slightly smaller hole.

    I have a question about row 3. On the video you repeated the pattern to the last 3 stitches, then you knit 2 stitches and knit the last stitch through the back loop. On the written instructions in the video and on the blog said repeat to last 2 stitches, then knit 2. Which one is correct? I enjoy watching your videos each day and am very happy they are done in the English style, so many videos on you tube are only in the continental method of knitting. Thanks for all the work you and your family puts in these videos and newsletters.

      The written directions are correct. I must have had an extra stitch for some reason and that’s why I said 3 instead of 2.
