Tutorial: How to work a horizontal edging

Posted on

The Prairie Shawl

The Prairie Shawl in Premier Rodeo uses short rows to create a lovely lace border along the shawl edge. On every odd numbered row you will incorporate the last stitch of the shawl edging with one stitch from the shawl body. After doing so, you will turn your work and continue to work just on the shawl edge stitches. Eventually, all of the shawl’s body stitches will be worked. At that point, the shawl edge stitches will be bound off and you're are finished!

We will demonstrate how to work this kind of edging on your shawl. Working your way around the edging, while repeating rows 2-11 of the edging pattern. Our example was not knit to the full size of the pattern, but a “mini shawl” size to show you how this technique is made.

 

Once you have completed row 105, cast on 8 stitches onto the end of your needle.

 We used a knitted cast on method.

Work row 1, which is:

Row 1 (WS): K7, p2tog (last st of edging with first st of shawl body).

 

In our photo, we are ready to work the p2tog, which will incorporate 1 edge stitch with 1 shawl stitch together.

Once you work your p2tog, turn your work.

Continue to work rows 2-11 of the repeat all the way around until all the body stitches have been worked and only your edge stitches remain.

 

Bind off all the remaining edge stitches. In our photo, we have cut our yarn and ready to pull the last stitch through to end our work.
