What I'd like to know is why the edging is crocheted and not knitted. It just doesn't seem right to finished a knitting project with crochet plus I'm most definitely a knitter not a crocheter; that's why I'm knitting the doily in the first place and not crocheting it. But I do have to admit that with each of the chains I am getting faster and I'll never complain about the length of time it takes to do a knitted picot cast off again because it is speedy compared to this crocheting!
You made 10 chains,
then you slip 3 stitches off your needle and pull the working yarn through all the loops.
At least that's what I think the pattern wants me to do. Crochet patterns are like a foreign language to me and this is how I've deciphered it. I seem to have an edging that looks like the picture and nothing is unravelling so I guess I'm on the right track.
The next step is blocking, I'm going to have to find a lot of pins for each of these points!
