The minimal number of edges required to form a knot or link of type K is the edge number of K, and is denoted e(K). When knots are drawn with edges, they are appropriately called piecewise-linear or PL knots. This paper presents some edge number results for PL knots. Included are illustrations of and integer coordinates for the vertices of several prime PL knots.
