In knitting, finishing the piece is very important, so edges and borders come in handy when you need them. This selection of the best ideas and patterns for lacy edgings will be right up your alley!

Knitted shawls can be breathtaking pieces of art, because they are intricate and often made with fine elegant yarns of good quality. They come in all shapes and sizes, so be it crescent, triangle or rectangle. One thing I love the most is the finishing – lacy edgings add character and sophistication! Whether it’s just delicate scalloped edging or thick intricate border, I love seeing what other designers come up with. Such shawl will be an elegant accessory, because it will elevate your outfit to the next level. You can easily add lace edging to other pieces, too, such as handkerchiefs or garments. Take a look at examples below and search for links to free patterns under the pictures.

This lovely floral edging radiates vintage glamour, because it’s elegant and very feminine. It will work as a straight finishing, but you can easily use it on crescent or circular designs, too.

Flowers for Britt – Edging With Flowers and Fans

Lacy edging of flowers and fans, which you can see below, is one of the loveliest designs I’ve found in this category. Pleuny used simple white yarn to make this lacy beauty, but one thing is certain with this design – it needs blocking! What does it mean? Well, you need to sprinkle it with water and fix it in place, pinning down all the parts, so that it becomes symmetrical.

Raspberry Leaves – Lace Edging

Openwork isn’t hard to make, but it definitely requires some patience and care after you’re done. Beautiful lacy edging you can see below is crisp and symmetrical, thanks to meticulous blocking and probably even stiffening. The latter allows you to make your lacy creation stay in place, usually by soaking it in water with glue.

Purity – Aeolian Shawl

Sometimes details are the most visible on pure background, and this project proves that right! Lovely pattern of this classic shawl is full of nuances, which can go unnoticed if the yarn you use is too colorful and busy.

Turquoise Path – Aeolian Shawl

Name of this project may be misleading at first, because all we can see is rich brown yarn and intricate structures. When you take a closer look, however, you can see little turquoise beads hiding in the openwork – cleverly weaved in by opipipio. This version of Aeolian uses thicker yarn and looks more solid, but intricate edging looks as beautiful as it always does in this project.

It’s Ornamental Cabbage Time – Aeolian Shawl

I must admit, that this project made me take another look, because I wasn’t sure what I’m looking at! Spiky edges of Aeolian shawl are painted vibrant violet, while the rest remains pure creamy white. This fantastic and unusual version by Nafania is the most delicate realization, because all it sings is lightness and fluff.

All My Love Shawl

Delicate half-moon shawl, which you can see below, looks like wings of a butterfly, and contrasting edging gives it even more volume. Lovely bobble details and lacy ornaments look great together, because they come from the same place – nature! Consider making it a circle, if you prefer, so you can use it as a circular tablecloth, for example.
