need help in lace edging corners
I've started working on one side of the lace edging of a shawl and just about at the bottom corner. I have trouble understanding the instruction of the pattern concerning rounding the corner and wonder if someone could explain in simple English what I need to do.
The pattern reads:
'Work Rows 1 - 4 until 4 loops before bottom corner, then work picked up stitch for Rows 2 and 4 in same stitch 8 times. Continue until 1 loop left to be worked, work Rows 1 and 2 in k only. Bind off in p.'
- what does 'work picked up stitch' mean?
- how and where do I work picked up stitch 8 times?
- Rows 1 and 2 have various stitches, am I supposed to knit every single one?
- when it says bind off in p, does that mean binding off at the bottom corner and I will need to work the other side the same way? From the picture, the bottom corner seems to run together, without seams, so I am totally confused. Please help.
