But Wait...there's more....Mitred Corner on Shawl -Now With Illustrations

 Here are some photos as a follow up to the Mitred Corner post from last week.

Ready to start the corner in the edge stitch.
This is a sideways-knit edge.

Start putting one stitch per row onto a stich-holder.

Turn the work as you continue the pattern.

Nearly at the apex of the corner.
Now the opposite happens as you pick-up
the stitches you put onto the stitch-holder.
A freshly worked corner.

You will find the "join" along the 45 degree line of the mitre will look
 more open than you might like. Keep your work as
tight as you feel comfortable with.
And I am almost there!

A short post meant as an appendix to the previous post on Mitred Corners.
