Need help with scallop edging
I have been following a pattern in the book "Knitting on the Edge" for the scallop edging, and I am running in a problem on row 3.

The pattern on Row 2 is as follows:

K2*k1 and sl back on to LH needle, lift the next 8 sts on LH needle over the st and off needle, yo twice, k first st again, k2; rep from *to end

The pattern on Row 3 is as follows:

K1*p2tog, drop extra loop, [K1,K1 tbl] twice in yo, p1* rep from*

After I worked the stitches on row 3 my hole created by the yo has a single thread stretching across it and it dosnt look right.

I think I am not doing row 3 correctly.

Can anyone help?

Much appreciated!

Anna

The double yarn over in row 2 gives you quite a bit of yarn for the k1, k1tbl, k1, k1tbl. I get a bit of leftover strand at the end (one corner of the scallop) that looks like it should be closed up but it evens out if you tug a bit at the sts. Make sure that you're doing the [K1,K1 tbl] twice or that strand will be even longer.
It is a really pretty edging.

Do you get a hole with a single thread stretched across it?

I tried it again and I think I am struggling with the [K1,K1 tbl] twice in yo, part of row 3.

Does this site have a video for this part?

Here's a video vor k1, k1tbl, k1 into a single stitch. You should have an easier time of it because you have the extra space of the double yarn over.

Here's a video for k1tbl by itself.

See if they help. There shouldn't be a strand of yarn across the opening in the scallop.

Thank you for the videos and it appears that I am doing this correctly, but still getting unwanted results.

When I [k1, k1tbl, k1] twice into the yo, p1 I am still getting a strand of yarn that stretches across the opening- its not one clean hole.

When I come to the double yo I drop the extra loop leaving a single yo. Then I knit in the front of the loop like a normal knit stitch. Without removing the stitch from my LN, I knit in the back of the loop. I repeat this process one more time (knit in the front, then knit in the back). Then I finally slip the stitch off my LN. I purl the next stitch and this is when I see this yarn stretching across the hole that has been created.

When you finish the k1, k1tbl, k1, k1tbl, the working strand of yarn is coming off the LH needle as usual and you then purl. Is the extra strand from the working strand or can you tell if it's part of the yarn over or coming from somewhere else? If you could post a photo of both sides of the knitting, maybe that would help.

Yes the strand is coming from the YO. I tracked where the strand is coming from and its the front leg of the YO. As I am working these 4 stitches into the YO, it pulls the front leg of the YO across the hole I am creating.

I know I am doing something wrong. It just looks like from the videos that I am performing the increase correctly.


Give me a little bit to post a picture of what I am doing.

After the first k1, k1 tbl, try dropping the yo off the left needle and then picking it up again with the left needle. I can't do the second k1 unless I do this to reposition the yo.
