I figured it would be more fun for the veteran knitters if the Laceless clues were pictureless as well. But for those who are beginners, or would rather confirm their knitting with visuals, I’ll be sure to have pictures nearly every step of the way.
This is Shawl Edging Row 3. It makes more sense to show you the odd rows, because even rows end with stitches on both needles. This is the first row worked in contrasting color.
This is Shawl Edging Row 5. Same thing as Row 3, but in a different color. Now you get to repeat Rows 3-6 for quite a while.
The extra stitches generated by kfb run along the side of the piece to be knit later. Nifty, right? It was all inspired by this post at leethal.net. Lee’s sideways edge cast-on tutorial helped me decide that this was the perfect method to do a laceless edging without curling. Awesome! Thanks Lee!
And through the magic of the internet, we can skip ahead to the very last repeat of row 5. You’ll have something like this.
And here’s a shot of the back. See how carrying the colors leaves an unobtrusive edge? It’s even less noticeable on a finished shawl.
Now before I get carried away, we should probably go over the last row of the edging. We start with yet another KFB.
There’s just one little problem:
We’re here! The end of Clue #1. Curl up your nice finished edging and set it aside until next week.
See you then!
