In the August issue of Crochet World, we feature a Quartet of Decorative Edgings by 4 amazing designers. These edgings are written in such a way that you can adapt them to go on any project. They are great for pillow cases, trims around the hem of a skirt or top, blanket edges and an number of other applications you can think of.
First up, Lori Zeller’s Sweet edging uses Omega size 10 crochet cotton in mauve and features and easy to repeat V-st pattern. The height as written gives you a trim that is 2.25 inches tall and then instructions allow for you to adjust to the length that you need.
Then there is Monica Mance’s darkly lovely Heartland Lace edging. This edging is worked up in a black thread and features split single crochet, chain spaces and double treble crochet in a very geometric style. Squared lines are softened by delicate points along the base.
Next we have a trim worked in a beautiful shade of emerald green. Linda Dean’s Delicate Pinecones do not disappoint. Shell stitches and chain spaces combine to form lacy pinecones. This edging may require a little more concentration to get to the length that you desire but will be well worth the effort!
The last edging of the quartet is the Quarter Sun edging by Cherie Bernatt of Crochet Mon Cherie. This edging is about 3 inches tall and again can be worked to any length. It’s worked up in a lovely shade of off white for the sample image. The quarter sun design adds a lovely feminine touch to whatever piece you decide to add it to.
