View Full Version : clover edging pattern

does anyone remember seeing a clover edging in the last couple of days? I can't remember if I saw it in someone's album or just as an insert in someone's post. I have my shuttles all wound and ready and can't find it. If anyone can direct me to any good clover edging, I would love it.

so....not to be outdone, I have started two different clover edgings. one is with size 20 (love it) and the other is size 80 (hate it) I must say the 80 is so pretty and dainty but I just am too impatient to work with the fine stuff. I have yanked and cut and jerked and pulled on it twice as much as the 20, but I am determined to do the edging with it. need some encouragement here!

What I am doing is the pattern in the 20 first. That way I will really learn the pattern right down into my fingers (making enough mistakes with 20 and retro tatting) THEN I will start the 80 which is such a different feel. Since I am almost finished with the 20 and I have the hang of the pattern I will only (?) have to get used to the different feel of the 80 (and with 80 I will have to use the magnifier so I can see the knots)
We will have to see how that helps me. Maybe that would help you.
PS: I really know this edging pattern now.

Which edging are you using?
but I am determined to do the edging with it. need some encouragement here!
OK, Georgeann. Deep breaths. Relax. You can do this. First, finish the size 20 edging. Then, after you know the pattern as well as a completed project can make you know it, move to the smaller thread. You can do this. You will feel a bit of difference in the way the thread works in your fingers, but it is only a perception thing. The pattern is the same, and you know the pattern. Move slowly and have fun with it. You can do this. I have every confidence in you. You can do this.
