This crochet edging is a simple shell pattern. The only stitches used are sc, dc, ch, and picot. Lace doesn’t have to be complicated to look beautiful. Another great part of this lace is that you can make it as long as you like. The body of the lace is a 2 row pattern repeat that ends with a big finish to really make it stand out.

The cowl is a perfect pattern for someone who crochets and is wanting to try out knitting. There is no easier knitting pattern out there. Just cast on the amount of stitches you want and then knit until you reach 30 inches.

This is a frree pattern found on my blog, but if you would like to purchase this pattern that is a printer friendly ads free PDF you can through my Ravelry Store.
