I'm working on the Mermaid. I am at the center of the back. I'm not sure how to do the edge stitches before the centre gusset of back in the rows that say "knit across all stitches" or the last row of the first centre gusset of back "K one row from WS across all stitches and work the yo from last ridge together with the next st. Do you do an edge stitch?

Mermaid - up and running

Just wanted to publicly announce that, after 4 years of patiently waiting in my craft box, Mermaid is on the needles! I got the spreadsheet for the Medium size from Amy although after (too much) deliberation I have decided to knit the Small with a few minor changes. I needed spreadsheet initially to make sure I was on the right track but, having just finished the first arm gusset, I'm getting familiar with the pattern, even the short rows.
I've benefited from the information provided by all of you who have knitted Mermaid previously and am happy to share any info with you (apart from the spreadsheet, of course!) or answer any questions you might have about sizing, quantities of yarn and alterations. Hoping to keep my blog reasonably up to date (see the link to Tessa on the right hand side of the page).
