:: CROCHET EDGING ::
A nice selection for your viewing pleasure ::
GREEN: scallop edging. easy. i’ll go with that for pillowcases. doesn’t use much yarn.
PURPLE: trifoil edging. adds height and majestic nature , a bit crowny. pattern looked terrible but was pretty easy! I learned new stitches, the half double treble and the treble4together. i like this one.
BLUE : Diamond edging. the diamond is only half finished (abandoned) as the pattern quickly turned into a very long paragraph of alien fish gibberish. Something like .. place leg cluster and draw loop and yoh yoh and miss two yohs and chsp thru 6 base hole clusters. OoOOoo. Suddenly I felt like Pete Seeger was in the room and I was reading words to a folk song. If you can do this edging, then you are seriously waaaaay cool.
I won’t even show you what the butterfly lip, ricrac, and scallop edgings turned out like – where do they get these names ?
Believe me, it was fun. In an excited feverish sortof way. I do love the purple one, its height and the little crowns were certainly amusing to create. I did learn a few new stitches. And I totally know how to land an alien spacecraft now.
I see lovely little crochet edgings along pillowcases, neckscarves, handkerchiefs, doilies, and skirts. And it does make me ever so happy to see them. Do you have a favorite crochet edging?
