Loving Your Lace Edgings

Loving Your Lace Edgings

Adding a lace edging is a sweet way of topping off shawls, scarves, socks – or any other kind of project! In this class, you’ll learn where to find edging patterns, and how you can customize them. You’ll pick up tips for working tricky stitches – such as yarn overs at the beginning of a row — and for blocking. We’ll go over multiple options for attaching edgings, and you’ll have the chance to practice on a sample piece.
