I have searched and searched for stitch patterns for inclusion in garment patterns to make a change to a favourite pattern and in my searches have not found more than five lace patterns that make a fancy edge. I know I have outlined my problem with lace patterns but others must be looking for incentive to create by finding a stitch pattern that simply drives one to complete a project just because the stitch pattern is so intriguing, enticing and totally addictive to make. I search for lace that is knit from cast on to create an edge and knit length-wise to create an edge with a fancy wavy or point for garment enhancement. I have recently created a cowl with such an edge but I would be very happy to find another person's edge creation and use that innovative stitch pattern.
Then I came to Knitting Daily. Oh No! I can't find a stitch library or stitch glossary. Is there a link that I have missed? Help needed to create and get started on my new project.

Chuckles going on over here -- no need to panic!! As with all knitting sites, there is not a one fix solution to everyones' dilemnas. However, at the top right-hand corner of the page is a white bar that says "search". In this search bar type in the words "lace edging" and click on "go". This will take you to a new page where there are many entries about lace edgings on various garments/items. Good luck with this and let me know how you make out with your lace edgings!
Have you a specific project in mind to use the lace edging on?? how long have you been knitting?? I been at it off and on for about 40 yrs. Which way do you knit? continental or English?? I knit mostly continental but use both when doing fair isle. What is your favorite thing to knit?? Mine is socks. I know I am full of questions when I meet a knitter who is new to me!
When ever you are looking for something specific that is not found in the glossary or under topics, just type in the word/s into the search bar. I know that there is a knitting book that is totally about different knit edgings that can be made. I saw it recently but I cant remember the name of it right now. Perhaps someone else knows the name and can help out here??
Happy knitting, Zoe
I just found a glossary under Free Resources. My understanding is it tends to be by publisher.
How to do waste yarn to start cast on
Look under Free Resources menu and choose Glossary. Then look for Provisional Cast-On.
