Edging ideas


#1

Hi. I’m looking for some advice. I’m going to be knitting my mum a sweater in the round using a pattern of both knit and purl stitches. I want to do a fancy edging rather than just a plain rib but it needs to be an edging that would also be suitable for a round neck finish. Has anybody got any suggestions?

A picot edging is nice though I’m not sure what will work best with your pattern. Nicky Epstein’s Knitting on the Edge is loaded with different techniques. Public libraries often have both books.
