Blanket Edge - knit in the round?
Hi. I have knit a couple of baby blankets before, but I have never added the edging. I am using a circular needle and now I am wondering if I knit the blanket edging in the round. Meaning...do I need to just keep knitting around and around keeping track of my rows or do I go back and forth somehow. I have picked up the stitches all the way around the blanket at this point.
Also, I have not counted the stitches and I am doing broken rib. Do I need to count the stitches and make sure I have the right number before I start.
Finally, the pattern calls for increasing a stitch before and after each marker on the corners. Will this affect my broken rib pattern.
(K1, P1 on row 1 then K on row 2) Repeat for 2 inch border.
Thanks for your help!
