Elzeblaadjes Elegant Edge

border2

My Sophie’s Universe has a border of my own design, Elzeblaadje’s Elegant Edge.

The border was inspired by several books on edging and borders like “Exquisite Trims in Thread Crochet by Caitlin Sainio” and” Around the Corner Crochet Borders by Edie Eckman”.

I have written the pattern of the rounds in the border in a document you can download, The border exists of 12 rounds, you can skip rounds if necessary. The border is about 8 cm and in my case about 1000 stitches. But you can use it for much smaller works or projects. How many yarn you need is upon you, I used half a skein for the smaller rounds and up to a skein for the larger rounds.

The last round is a bit tricky. Make first a sc, than ch 2 and than 2 dc in the same stitch in which the sc is made, skip 2 stitches and start all over again. You get a nice bobbly edge.
