There are many lovely edging patterns out there which are intended to be knit onto established stitches. Knitting edging onto Queenie’s Open-Ended Cast On, these stitch patterns can stand alone. QOECO gives a substantial, beautifully finished decorative edge to support the edging along the top and both ends. Stand Alone Edging is ideal scarves, belts, curtain tie backs, headbands, etc.

Here, you will learn how to adapt any edging so it can stand alone. The pattern provided to demonstrate this technique uses an edging inspired by Jane Sowerby’s Victorian Lace Today—an outstanding resource for edging patterns!
