Wide Economy Lace Edgin

Wide Economy Lace Edging project and tutorial


Sometimes you just need to do something different. I’ve been cutting (….and cutting and cutting) denim for a king-sized quilt (more on this another day). My hands needed a break so I decided to start some edging for the pillow cases and sheets. Honestly, I was a little excited to start a free pattern called “Wide Economy Edging”at MyPicot.com

The picture above doesn’t do it justice. As it’s a work in progress it’s not blocked. So pretty! The widest part measures about five inches. I’ve never owned or made lace edged sheets and pillow cases. OH the luxury! Hopefully the large lace will accent the denim and create a cozy vintage feel.

Learn to Read a Crochet Diagram on my Pinterest Board: Lace, Doilies and Edgings.

I have no idea who made the crochet cotton or even what size it is. Sorry… it’s a few balls from my Mom’s old stash. Whatever you use, just play around with crochet hooks until you have the gauge you want. I highly recommend following the link to the .pdf file for the diagram. The written instructions are very hard to follow if you are a newbie crocheter. I have crocheted for years and had to frog and redo many sections until it looked right. I emailed the site for permission to reproduce the pattern to share with you. Once I hear back I will post it with my changes.
