Picot Edge Cast Off

Picot Edge Cast Off
This knitted edging makes a pretty finish for a feminine look.

1. To start - knit 2 stitches, pass first stitch over second stitch, as you would for a cast off stitch.
2. Pass the stitch from the right hand needle back over to the left hand needle.
3. Make two stitches onto the left hand needle by making backward loops.
4. Cast off four stitches.
Repeat instructions, 2, 3, 4 as required.

Thank you for sharing how to do this edging. Your photos of each stage are perfect. I'm using it to finish off a cardigan for my daughter and I'm sure she will love it.
