111 Easy Edgings (Leisure Arts #2924) (Paperback)

I saw this on amazon.com yesterday. Does anyone know how it is done? "111 Easy Edgings (Leisure Arts #2924) (Paperback)". Edgings add a touch of lacy class to everything. These are great projects to add to table cloths, clothing, lamps and much more! The instructions introduce a new top-to-bottom method instead of the traditional chain method.

You didn't say if this is knitting or crochet. Since you mention chains, I'm guessing crochet. There are lots of free patterns available on the internet for crochet lace edgings. Just search "free crochet lace patterns". Many of them are worked top to bottom, and you make them as long as you want. I hope this helps.

I make several crochet edgings that are made this way. They are started with a short chain that is used for the width of the border and you crochet them as long as you need. When you think about it, it makes more sense. What would you do if you crocheted a long chain and made the entire border and it turned out to be 1" too short or you crocheted too losely and it turned out 6" too long? You make the entire border and sew it on. This way, if you toss the tablecloth, you are able to take the border off.
