Lovely! Just what I was looking for as an accent along the bottom of a tank top.

Thanks for sharing!

I used this to finish off a croched baby blanket and it looks beautiful. I am always making up my own edging and on the lookout for 'Different' and beautiful finishing touches on my blankets. I only wish is knew how to post a picture. The only thing I did different, I didn't do the hemstitch on the blanket. It just wasn't necessary for this project. THANK-YOU so much...WONDERFUL!! My niece will be pleased.

The above comment was from Christine not Brad...I don't want people thinking my husband sits and crochets...ha-ha. I tried editing the name before the comment, but it didn't work, sorry.

Thank your for this pattern, I'm so excited to try it! I found it on Ravelry while hunting for a unique edging pattern. I'm hemstitching the piece myself with a wing needle...wish me luck!
