Knit 90 degrees
I'm starting a pattern for a shawl. It begins with cast on 3 sts and knit 6 rows. Then it says to "rotate work 90 degrees". I don't know how to do that. Can you explain that please?
Thank you very much,
I cannot be completely sure without more information from the pattern, but I suspect that your pattern is about to tell you to pick up and knit stitches along the edge of your knitting.
I suspect that your six rows form the centre of the shawl, and you are about to knit one or more of the sides of the shawl.
The shawl in the picture below is a fine lace pattern and probably quite different to the pattern you are knitting but the shape is probably similar in that there is a centre panel and four sides that are either knitted together on a circular needle or separately and sewn together.
