We asked Katrina King to pick out some of her favorite knitted borders and edgings from Weldon’s Practical Needlework for this issue. These are her choices.

She used size 0 (2 mm) needles and Handy Hands Lisbeth, size 20, 100% cotton thread for each in the following colors: #659 Periwinkle (Trellis Border), #640 Medium Violet (Fleur-de-Lis Edging), #603 Ecru (Cherry-Leaf Border), #616 Medium Daffodil (Wide Point Lace Border), and #683 Light Leaf Green (Willow Leaf Edging);

Do keep in mind that these instructions are exactly as they were printed in the original volumes of Weldon’s, published in London in 1887 (Volume 2) and 1890 (Volume 5); neither alterations nor corrections were made. The Fleur-de-Lis Edging and the Cherry-Leaf Border were not illustrated in the original. These edgings are suitable for a variety of uses, including trim on sheets, pillowcases, tablecloths, napkins, shawls and scarves, and lingerie. Have fun making your own Victorian knitted borders and edgings!
