Make picot st holes for drawstrings
 
I am so confused!!!! Will someone please help me!!

The pattern says this.....
[K1, (yo, k2tog) across to last st, k1.]
Work 7 St st rows, then rep bet []s to form picot st edging.
Work 5 St st rows.
Leasving a 36" tail of yarn for finishing, thread all sts onto another 36" length of yarn.

I get it up til it says, then rep bet []s...so on so forth.

Someone please help me.
Thank you

curiously, one pattern (k1, YO, K2tog) has 2 uses!

in the middle of a peice of work, it will make a pattern of eyelets, (border (top and bottom) these eyelets with rows of garter stitche (purls on right side of work) and you get a third pattern, commonly called "beading")

but i digress.

one pattern has 2 uses.

in the middle of the work, (in a feild of knit stitche or really any stitch) its makes a set of holes--great for pulling a drawsting through.

at the end/edge (actually about 4 to 5 rows from edge, it makes a natural fold line.. and when you fold along the fold line, you get a picot (zig/zag, little pointed edge)

so first you work the pattern (there are detail for centering it, (the k1's at beginning and end) and then work the pattern for drawsting eyelets.

a few rows latter, you repeat the same pattern, followed by a 5 rows of stocking knit stitch.

(the part that doesn't make sense is putting all the stitches onto the gail (unless its just a holder till latter when you finish)

this sweater has a picot edge at the bottom hem.

Thank you for the help

So, even though it does not tell me to, I am going to have to fold the top?

Holy smokes!! You have some gorgeous FOs there!

Anastasia, my guess is no, just finish it per your pattern's instructions.

Probably not, but if the pattern says this.....
"[K1, (yo, k2tog) across to last st, k1.]

Work 5 St st rows.
Leasving a 36" tail of yarn for finishing, thread all sts onto another 36" length of yarn. "

... what do you do after ther 5 st st rows? It does say to run the yarn through the stitches on the needle though - instead of binding off? What is it you're making - a bag, slippers, hat?

I would say you BO after the 5 st st rows and you don't fold over. Then you've got eyelest to run your yarn, cord or ribbon through.
