From Shetland Lace Knitting From Charts by Hazel Carter.

“To accommodate the extra length at the outer edge, Shetland knitters often ‘lengthen the edge’ by knitting two sts in from the edge and then back again, each side of the point.” Shown in this stitch map via short rows.

Shown with a cast-on count of 12 stitches.
