    I just finished watching How to knit the scalloped shell edging – how do I do it in reverse to finish an edge with the same design???

      I’m sure it is possible, but we do not have a way to do it as of now.

    Hello, can you advise on how to knit this edging on the round?
    THanks in advance.

      We do not currently provide instructions for patterns in the round.

      In general you need to reverse all of the instructions for the wrong side rows. This means knits will be purls and visa versa.
