I enjoy knit edging a lot because it doesn't have too many stitches in a row and that makes it goes faster. I enjoy seeing the end result - the magical transformation of stitches into beautiful and elegant look. I wish I had more time to do all the project I want with this edging.
Anyway I just want to share this pattern with you and I'm sure you'll love it too. I recently just bought a charting program and I'm learning how to work it. I'm adding it here because some knitters prefer chart than written instruction. Hopefully, you'll find it helpful.
I ued this lovely lace edging in my Spring Lace Scarf which I am selling it at my Etsy shop, Ravelry Shop and Craftsy Shop for $3.99.
Choose any yarn you want depending on your project and the needle size that is suggested by the yarn's label.
CO 7 sts. (knit 1 row if you want to use this edging with a flat project. This will help keep the end more sturdy.)
