New Lace Edging Patterns for Knitters!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any new knitting patterns, so today I’m sharing ten at once! These are all antique patterns from my collection that I’ve updated into modern knitting terms, charted and test knit for you.

I hope you enjoy this selection of lace edgings and insertions. I still have many more in my collection to add in the future.

New Knitted Lace Border Pattern!

Knitted lace border with eyelet pattern of double diamonds and pennant flags

This week’s knitting pattern is based on a knitted doily edging from 1884. The reason it took me two weeks to get this one online, rather than giving it to you last week is because I had to rework the way the diamonds transition from one to the next, and kept changing my mind about how to do it, which meant a LOT of knitting.

I hope you enjoy the new pattern for the Knitted Diamond and Flag Border.

If you enjoy knitted lace edgings, don’t forget to check out the whole collection! My collection of knitted collars (because they’re usually just big edgings), insertions and edgings.

Today’s Uncommon Knitting Pattern

A yellow knitted lace edging with wide open bands of textured lace and a pointed edge

Today’s knitting pattern is a very unusual lace edging rescued from the advice column of the Melbourne Leader from 1884. I’m a sucker for any 19th century lace edging that doesn’t have a picture of the finished lace, because they’re usually ignored or missed by modern knitters and are sometimes very special, like this one.

Check out the knitting pattern for “Uncommon Lace”. I’ve updated, charted and test knit it so you don’t have to.

New Knitted Lace Edging

Five repeats of narracoorte knitted lace edging

This week’s knitting pattern is a lace edging I have named “Narracoorte Lace“, after the newspaper it was first published in, in 1890.

As always, I have updated the pattern into modern knitting terms, charted it and tested it for errors. Despite it’s complex looking design, narracoorte lace is only 17 stitches wide and 10 rows long, making it really good value for your effort!

There are now over 183 edging and insertion patterns on Knitting-and.com and they can all be found on the “Lace Collars, Edgings and Insertions” pages. (I include collars because they often make great edgings too). If you’re ever looking for a perfect finish to your project, check them out!
