Diagonal edges

(See also Shaped edges, page 66) Try to work from a chain, chain-garter or double-chain selvedge. If the selvedge is not interrupted with shapings, proceed as for vertical edges.

If the selvedge is interrupted by shapings, knit up at least two strands in from the edge on the interruptions. Take care to keep a straight line.

When the shapings are groups of cast-on or bound-off stitches, work as for horizontal edges. In between groups, knit up at least two strands in from the edge. For a smooth line, do not hesitate to knit up further from the edge if there is a step that breaks continuity (Fig 10).
