How do you turn a mitered corner?
I am knitting a mitered corner for the first time in the edging of a shawl. In the instructions it says to turn the knitting? Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks,

Leslie

Can you post a link to the pattern or more of the instructions?

Are you 'turning' as in doing a short row (working to corner and back) or specifically a mitered corner (working multiple incs around the point of the corner)?

Yes, this is short row knitting. Everytime it says turn, you work back over the sts you just did.
