One of my favorite ways to work crochet into your knitting is with crocheted edgings. Here I show you how to work a spiked edge.
Crochet instructions for the spiked edging:
This edging looks best if you do it in a contrasting color. *Single crochet into 2 stitches, then make a “spike” by inserting your hook into the stitch below (or lower). Grab the yarn and pull up 1 loop, grab the yarn again and pull through two remaining loops. Skip next stitch. Repeat from *.
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 2-4 to desired length. BO in pattern on RS of work.
