SELVAGE
Please help!!! I am working a pattern called " Lola Curly the Pig" it will be a stuffed pig when finished. The instructions are currently written as: "leaving markers in place, k the first and last st of all ws rows for a selvage edge, work in st st without further shaping for 3 " from last increase row. end with a ws row" What the heck does this mean?! If any one has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated

You are going to be working St st (knit one row and purl the other)...on the purl row they want you to knit the first and last st and not purl it...this will give you the selvage edge...you will just work St st for 3" and your last row will be on a purl side

So i am adding more rows, not addding anything to the pre-existing rows that i have already knitted. I am essentially adding 3 more inches to my work and doing nothing to the already existing rows. Am i getting that right?
