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.
