The Crown Edging Stitch

Stitch Description

The Crown Edging Stitch is a border pattern that is a unique take on the picot bind-off. It creates an edge with large chain like loops that form peaks similar to a crown. This edging works great as an add on to a blanket or sweater, or on it’s own as knit jewelry.
