    Sorry about row 38, when I submitted it I thought everything was there in that row. Anyhoo, here is a corrected row 38

    38: k16, p6, k16

    As for weaving in ends, you literally weave in the ends of the yarn (look like tails) hanging after you bind off and the one at the beginning form casting on. I use a crochet hook to weave mine into the borders.

  7. Knitting1661 says
