Making a hem - knitting a loop from cast-on edge?

by Betty
(England)

Pattern reads:
Make hem by - knitting tog. one st. from needle and one loop from cast-on edge all across row.

What is a loop from cast-on edge? How do I complete this instruction?

YOUR ANSWER



There should be a loop between each stitch of your cast on edge.

Hold the knitted piece with the cast on edge upwards. Starting at the right hand side, slip your left hand needle under the first loop so that it sits on the needle in front of the first stitch on your needle.

Knit the first stitch and the loop together. Then pick up the second loop on your cast on edge with your left hand needle and knit together with the next stitch.

Continue this way until you have knitted across all stitches on the cast on edge.
