Faux crochet loop edging

Right side rows start at the outside.

If knitting onto live stitches, for example as an edging for a doily, start by casting on three stitches, then repeat the four rows, replacing the last knit stitch of rows 1 and 3 with ssk, taking in the next stitch of the body of the work.

Right side rows start at the outside.

If knitting onto live stitches, for example as an edging for a doily, start by casting on three stitches, then repeat the four rows, replacing the last knit stitch of rows 1 and 3 with ssk, taking in the next stitch of the body of the work. If the edging needs to stretch more, use a double decrease which takes in two main body stitches. Do this every time, or alternate times, or some other regular pattern of times to achieve the degree of stretch needed. The edging shown in the swatch photo could have done with being more stretched.

Shown with a cast-on count of 3 stitches.
