On the Edge
Borders and edgings differ from trims in that they are very often worked separately, usually in a different direction. The main knitting is then picked up from this border or edging and worked upwards. This separation means more possibilities for variations of materials, gauge, stitch, etc. Then there’s the problem of how to join the same border or edging along vertical sides, curved edges, and garment tops. Get to know more possibilities for adding interest to knit garments or even “dressing up” store bought items with bits of knitting. Also included are novelty add-ons.
