Cat's Tooth sweater edge

by Elizabeth Nolfe
(Ticonderoga, NY)

I have a mohair sweater pattern that has a cat's tooth stitch sleeve and the instructions are unclear.

Cat's tooth stitch:

Row 1 Selvage stitch, *K 2 tog, yo* repeat * to *: end 1 selvage stitch
Row 2 P across

This is all given for the instructions and I don't know what to do next.

Has anyone used this technique? Can you help?

Thanks...Liz

YOUR ANSWER


Without seeing the rest of your pattern, I am only guessing, but I would assume that the Cat's tooth pattern repeats up the length of your knitted piece.

So I would say that the two rows in your instructions form the basic pattern and you just repeat them until you have reached what ever length you need.

If you are asking about the selvage stitch at each end, this just means that you knit the first and last stitch on every row. The selvage stitch forms a neat edge and prevents your knitting from curling at the edge.
