Thank you for responding! I checked the links and they are beautiful. I think I am thinking too much but here's my challange. I have been knitting a long rectangle should wrap in k4, p37,k4. Since starting it I have learned new patterns. The edge I want on the end is a lace, diamond shape. The stitch pattern starts with 12 stitches, does some decreases and increases for 14 rows then ends again with 12 stitiches. How does the diamond shape end up on the bottom edge with the bo. Also, looking at the sample I just knitted, if it is edging, does it mean the top and bottom of a rectangle or the sides?
