One of my favorite ways to work crochet into your knitting is with crocheted edgings. Here I show you how to work a simple scalloped edge.
Crochet instructions for the scalloped edge:
Single crochet into 1 stitch, *skip 2 stitches, 5 double crochets into next stitch, skip next 2 stitches, single crochet into next stitch, repeat from *. End by working a slip stitch into first single crochet. Note — at the corners of a square, work your count so that you work the double crochet stitches in the corner. I found that working 8 single crochets (instead of 5) made a nice corner.
Knitting instructions for the long moss stitch:
CO an even number of stitches.
Row 1 (WS): *K1, P1*, repeat to end of row
Row 2: *P1, K1*, repeat to end of row
Row 3: *P1, K1*, repeat to end of row
Row 4: *K1, P1*, repeat to end of row
Row 5: *K1, P1*, repeat to end of row
Repeat Rows 2-5 to desired length. BO in pattern on RS of work.
