Crochet Edgings .... [learning left hand crochet]


Here are few more edgings;  where I was able to understand the pattern.


There were many re-doings and staying up late on a work week. But, finally when the pattern started look more like one in the book I was happy.



This edging was a little messy one to make. I think I managed it alright. Thicker yarn made it much easier to count stitches and see the pattern develop.


You need to make separate fans and then join them. So many ends to sew in and neaten. I think it will be quite a lot of work if you are to make longer one in finer yarn.





A bit of an update on my blanket of many colours...it is almost coming to an end and, I am looking forward to see the final result.




Thank you taking your time to stop by .....

till next time,
xxx,
Gaia

  1. These edgings are beautiful! How lucky to find an old booklet with so many pretty designs. I'm amazed at what you've accomplished in such a short time. I really like the pastel colours you used in the previous post too. Your blanket is looking really nice, and I'm sure you'll get it finished up soon. Have a great weekend Gaia :) Wendy x

  3. HI Gaia!
    You seem liking to crochet edgings :) They are beautiful. Agree that that one will take time to make... but may be for some small doilies or cotton tissues it will be ok. I am sure you have enough patience to make a fabulous something using this edging.
    mmm... the blanket is so cozy! Want to see the finished version soon :)
