On all my flat knitting patterns there is a selvedge edging. This makes it look nicer as well as easier to crochet through the edging. I thought I would show you how my selvedge works.
We will start on the right side (beginning of a row) then go to the left side (end of the row) of the sample. I hope this helps with any questions you have with my patterns.
Begining (Right Side) Of The Row
Here I show you how I start the row. I put the right hand (empty needle) in this way through the stitch. I am not sure if you would consider this tbl (through back loop) or not.
This is how it looks from the front before knitting the stitch.
This is how it looks from the top/back before knitting the stitch. See how the working yarn is to the left of the stitch? This is how it is supposed to be.
End (Left Side) Of The Row
This is how the end of the row looks when you put the yarn in front before you slip the next stitch (wyif).
This is how the row looks when the yarn is in front and the next stitch is slipped. You can see the working yarn is in front of the last stitch. After this you turn the piece and start all over again from the right side.
Pictures Of How The Sides Look With The Selvedge
This shows you how the selvedge sides look from the sides (I folded the piece so that the sides could be shown side by side). You can see they look the same as the top of crochet stitches.
This is how the selvedge sides look on the front and back of the work.
