How do you turn your knitting 90 degrees and pick up stitches?
Turn your work 90 degrees clockwise and pick up one stitch in each of the garter ridges that you created. Insert your working needle in the edge of the garter ridge and knit into the stitch. Turn your work again 90 degrees clockwise and pick up three stitches along the edge. They may be a little difficult to see.
Can you add a border to a knitted blanket?
There are three different ways to add a knitted border to the edge of a knitted item. You can knit the border separately and sew it on, you can pick up stitches along the length of an edge and knit the border from the picked up stitches, or you can knit the border and attach it to the edge one row at a time.
