For the sake of clarity I have added a few additional instructions regarding the edge. Where crochet terms differ, UK/US.
Work edge with a crochet hook:
*2 stitches tog with a double/single crochet, chain 5*, repeat till end, ending with a slip stitch in the first dc/sc.
Work a second round like this:
Slip stitch till middle of first loop, 1 double/single crochet in middle of loop,* chain 5, 1 dc/sc in next loop* repeat till end of round ending with 5 chain and a slip stitch in first dc/sc.
|Knit 2 together|
All rows to be read right to left.
Chart shows 1 pattern repeat, knit 8 times in round.
Finish as indicated above.
