How to knit a fan edge

In this DROPS video we show you how to knit a fan edge with the help of a crochet hook. If you need 20 stitches you have to make 5 fans (1 fan = 4 stitches).

* Cast on 10 stitches on both a knitting needle and a crochet hook, (remember to have enough thread to cast on with). Make a yarn over the crochet hook, pull the yarn through the 10 stitches, pick up 1st stitch with the crochet hook and pull it through the loop on the crochet hook, tighten the thread, pick up the 10th stitches with the crochet hook, pull out the knitting needle and put the 2 stitches from crochet hook to the knitting needle * (= 1 fan).

Repeat from * - * until you have half the number of stitches you want. Turn and cast on 2 new stitches between the 2 stitches in each fan on the 1st row from WS. Start knitting stockinette stitch.

We use the yarn DROPS Eskimo in the video.

Hi there! I was wondering if it is ok to link yoyr videos in patterns that are not connected to you at all? Not even said to use your yarn or products in any of your patterns? I have been purchasing patterns from this Icelandic designer lately and in all of her patterns that i have has at least been one link in each pattern that is linked to one or more of your videos... she dose not even mention your company in the pattern or gives you any credit at all in her patterns

Dear Mrs Agnarsdottir, could you please give us more info about the person using our videos that way? Thank you in advance.
