Instructions: Picking Up Selvedge Stitches

Pick up and knit stitches along the selvedges by picking up three stitches for every two selvedge stitches. To do this pick up one stitch under both loops of the first chain stitch (Figure 1), one stitch under just the back loop of the second chain stitch (Figure 2), then one stitch under both loops of the same chain stitch (Figure 3, 4). Continue in this manner along the entire selvedge edge. You will end with about a third more stitches than there are selvedge stitches. For a fuller edge, pick up one stitch from the first stitch, two from the second stitch, and two from the third stitch, and repeat this sequence along the entire selvedge edge. In order to pick up lesser amount of stitches, pick up only one stitch from one loop of the chain stitch.
