I love to knit, but unfortuantely, I normally don't get my project finished. I'm a great starter.. and have lots of ideas and plans.
I started this white edging with the intention of sewing it on the bottom of a white skirt, and using it as a petticoat. It was simple knitting (I made up the pattern) but it did take quite a while as the skirt was miles and miles around the bottom! The beige edging is finished, waiting to go on another project, which is underway.
For anyone who is interested in knitting, and would like a project that doesn't require much of your attention, I have included the pattern.
First, I cast on 13 stitches. Then from here on, everything is in the knit stitch, which gives a bumpy surface, called garter stitch.
So, cast on 13 stitches. Then decrease one stitch every second row. One side of the edging will be the selvedge (don't decrease on that side) and the decreasing slope of the other side will begin to give you the triangle.
After you have decreased down to 5 stitches, cast on another 8, so you are back with 13 again. Repeat endlessly, or until you have the right amount to sew onto whatever you want.
You can work this edging in any width you want. If you want it wider, cast on more. Narrower, cast on less. Change it to suit what you want.
It's easy to rip up if you make a mistake, and it grows at a reasonable rate. I used number 11 needles, or about 3.5mm. Whatever suits you. Let me know if you make it.
