Row 104: knit across

NOTE: This edging is worked perpendicularly along the lower edge of shawl in strips that involve 7 sts: 3 sts at the beg of the strip, 3 sts used for a modified three-needle BO and 1 st returned to the left needle tip (along with the rest of the shawl sts). Each repeat (scallop) binds off 5 sts total.

Row 1: Beg with the first 3 shawl sts, yo, k1, kfb, yo twice (counts as 1 st), k1. — 6 sts
Row 2: Yo twice, k2tog (dropping second loop of double yo from prev row), k4.
Row 3: Yo twice, k2tog, k4 (dropping second loop of double yo from prev row).
Rows 4 – 20: rep row 2

NOTE: you want 10 large loops on each side of the strip.

BO as follows: Hold work with the shawl on your left, the edging on your right, and the tips of the needles pointing toward opposite sides.

With dpn, pick up each of the 10 loops along the edge closest to the live shawl sts one at a time, just putting the loops on the needle (not picking them up and knitting them).

With right needle tip, *pass second lop over first loop and off the needle: rep from * 9 more times — 1 loop st rem on dpn.

Place this st on right needle tip and pass live strip st over this loop, pull working yarn to tighten, then return last st to right needle tip. — 6 sts on right needle tip (counting double yo as 1 st).

Turn right needle around and place on top of left needle so that RS are facing together and both needle tips point to the right (in position to do a 3-needle BO). Holding both needles parallel [insert tip of dpn into first 2 sts (as if to k2tog) on the front needle and into the first st on the back needle and knit these 3 sts together] 2 times, then pass first st over second st and off the needle. 1 st BO.

Insert tip of dpn into next 2 strip sts (as if to k2tog) while dropping second loop of double yo, and into the next shawl st and knit these 3 sts tog.

Pass the first st over the second st and off the needle. — 1 st rem. Return this st to the left needle tip. Rep from Row 1 for each serpentine scallop.
