Plus ideas for using edgings

Designer Becky ffitch, our lace teacher, was inspired by the traditional Shetland lace patterns found in historic stitch dictionaries. Our rectangular shawl and scarf begin with sideways sawtooth garter-stitch edgings. The length is then knitted in a classic Fir Cone eyelet pattern that’s lacy enough to make you feel pretty and opaque enough to be cozy. Just the thing for a tromp on the moors!

The pattern also includes instructions for creating a simple lace edging, shown here sewn to a silk half-slip peeking out from under our skirt. The pattern gives other ideas for how to use this sweet little strip of knitted lace.
