Knitted Lace Edging Tutorial

I was playing with the trim mentioned previously in my posts.

This is the trim:
Photobucket

Here is a quick how to:

First, cast on 4 pegs:
Photobucket

Knit off the 4th peg about 6 times
Photobucket

It should look something like this after the 6th knit stitch:

Here is the back for a better look:

Now, bring the yarn in front of 3rd peg and purl to the left pegs 3,2,1
Photobucket

Knit right pegs 2 & 3
Photobucket

Repeat the purls left 321 & the knits right 2 & 3 about 3 times

Return to 4th peg and repeat knit offs.
Photobucket

It should look like this after the knit offs:

Continue this pattern until desired length.

  3. Sorry to hear that, Anon. What exactly looks bad about it? Tension was a big hurdle for me. Took a lot of practice to keep it even while working. Share a pic and I'll see if I can help.

  7. I am new to knitting crocheting and using a loom. I wish you had a video of this. I really want to add this to a baby blanket. Thanks for sharing your expertise. If you ever have time to share a video of this beautiful edging many of us would be inspired!

  8. If you put the end of the yarn through a short piece of drinking straw, it will be easier to manage.
