Q&A with JackieES

marlise43 asked:
How is the decorative edging done for this Smoke Ring? Is the Foundation Row of yo, k1 done all the way around, then do Rows 1 & 2, or is the Foundation yo, k1 done one time, then start Rows 1 & 2? Thanks for your help. Marlise Harlow marliseh@yahoo.com
JackieES answered:
Rows are done back and forth (rounds would be done all the way around). So, the Foundation Row, as well as Rows 1 & 2 are all done back and forth. The "yo, k1" of the Foundation Row is only worked once. On any row of the Decorative Bind Off Edging, you will be working no more than 2 stitches in a row. There is an article about the edging for this Smoke Ring at the KnitHeartStrings site here - http://www.knitheartstrings.com/bit-size-tutorials/dont-overthink-it-narrow-attached-edging-bind-off.php
