I am knitting the "Tilli Tomas Jewel Ruffle Shawl".
It is knit as a rectangle from the short end-- CO 130 sts.
When length of shawl is complete the pattern says:
Bind off Do not cut yarn. Pick up 130 sts across the bind off row. Knit 3 rows . . . etc.
Why do they want me to bind off 130 sts and then pick up 130 sts?
