Another Edging Cornered

Another edging design with the corner included.....

... and the diagram.....

I don't have a name for this design. At first, it looks like a series of crowns. Looking at it again, it appears like scared faces with the hair all standing up!

A little explanation about the chart -

1. Make the third picot in the R(3-3-3-3-3-3-3) small.

2. The ring shown in blue/green at the corner is a SCMR. After making (4+4..) of the SCMR, switch shuttle and make the clover. Resume the SCMR with another 4ds and close. Using SCMR allows you to make the corner in one pass.

3. If you do not wish to use the SCMR, ignore that part when you make the corner. Instead make the chain as (8-4) for the first repeat at the turn. When you have completed the round for the edging, go back to each corner and fill it in. With shuttle only, make the clovers as in the diagram. Then, make the fourth ring R(4+4+4), joining to the picot in each chain at the corner. Cut and join to the base of the clover.


  1. I love this edging... simple, yet elegant!

  2. Oh, what a cute edging. You're right, it does look little faces. Kind of like aliens from outer space!
