Saturday Stitch: Narrow Vandyke Edging

Every Saturday I will share with you a new stitch.
Today's stitch is: Narrow Vandyke Edging.

 Add a little flair or a decorative element to your knitting, maybe to stabilize the edge to prevent rolling or simply make your work look more finished.  Great to use on a scarf, sweater instead of a rib, blankets and throws.

Row 2: S1, k3, yo, k2tog, w2, k2tog.

Row 4: S1, k3, yo, k2tog, k4.
