Current Project - Crocheted Lace Trim

This crocheted trim is currently in my workbasket. I'm planning to add it to a pair of pillowcases. This is another thread trim that is very easy to crochet. It works up quickly and is practically mindless, once you get going. I can get about 20 inches made in 30 or 40 minutes, so it is a perfect project to take in the car, or to pull out while waiting at the dentist or the piano lesson. The trim uses a basic V-shell stitch and just turns back and forth on itself, over and over. There are all sorts of variations of this basic stitch and I have seen it in the foundation of many antique lace edgings. I think it looks nice as a simple flat pillowcase trim and it looks just as nice sewn on the woven band of a set of bath towels. I'll make a tutorial, just as soon as I help Miss Abigail finish the sewing project.

  1. Quick & mindless ~ do you promise? It's beautiful. I'll have to work on my crochet techniques now, my son is engaged and my neice. And I LOVE giving homemade, specially crafted gifts. Please keep the great ideas coming~

  2. Love this! It would also spruce up the neckline of a tank or t-shirt. I have a bright yellow t-shirt—which I love—with a tiny hole just beside the binding in the front. This would be the perfect trim to cover it.
    Thanks so much!


  3. Oh Donna, you make me laugh! I do promise, it really is easy. Although, I guess I have to admit that easy would be relative, but this is definitely a pattern made for beginners. :o)

    Jan, it surely does look pretty on a neckline. I've used it just that way on a sweatshirt. I'm glad you can extend the wear on a favorite t-shirt.
