Very nice!! I like the picot-edge effect. I don't think I've ever seen that on the diagonal pattern before.

I love your picot edge cloth but have a question. On row 1, you have BO 1, kfb. Then row 2 says S1, kfb, kfb. How can this be done, it takes 3 stitches and you only have 2???

I agree with Mattandkkmom....I am stuck on the first row! She is right...if you cast on 2, and then for row 1, bind off 1...you don't have any stitches left to make the kfb increase! Help! Thanks!

I caston 2 stitches, did the bindoff, turned, then on the only stitch knitted front & back.

I found that if you start with row 2 and repeat rows 8-11 it comes out perfect, happy knitting!
