Loving your Lace Edgings with J C Briar
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.
fingering-weight, DK-weight, or laceweight yarn (please do not select laceweight if you have never used it before!);
needles of a size appropriate for your yarn
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
Cast on 30 sts. Work even in garter stitch for 2" (5 cm).
Do not cut yarn.
