An edging can play a crucial role in stabilizing a garment, but it needs to fit in perfectly with the overall look. When youíre looking for a subtle edging that wonít overpower a design, try out reverse single crochet, also called the crab stitch. Itís perfect for tidying up a sloped neckline and lends sturdiness to an edge - see Plexus, a lace pullover knit in Berroco Weekend®, for an example. For a demonstration on how to work this handy technique, check out our new how-to video. If you found the video helpful, be sure to check out our how-to video library for more tips.
