Lace Edging with Brooke Nico
Adding a lace edge to even the simplest of garments takes it from nice to beautiful. We'll discuss the various types of edgings and ways to attach them. We'll talk about ways to deal with corners when knitting-on edgings including mitered corners and ruffling the edge for a smoother finish.

Smooth, light-colored, wool (fingering or sport weight) yarn, stitch markers, 3.75, 4, or 4.5mm/US 5, 6, or 7 needles.

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.

With smooth, light colored wool, cast on 22 stitches. Work 20 rows garter stitch, working a selvedge edge on each row as follows: Knit up to last stitch, bring yarn forward between the needles, slip last stitch. Do not bind off.
