    Love the look of the zig zag pattern for dishcloths. But the free pattern does not say what the edge stitch is. Thank you in advance. Going to write out any free patterns that come up. Pensioner and no printer

      Hi Frankie, there are many variations of the edge stitch. What we do here is slip the first stitch on both sides, on Right Side (RS), ‘slip knitwise’ and on Wrong Side (WS), ‘slip purlwise’. The last stitches in each row are different. On RS, the last stitch is a ‘knit’ stitch and on WS, the last stitch is a ‘purl’.
