Venetian Lace Edging – Crochet Pattern

 Here’s the finished piano runner. I selected a bone edging that I was able to attach to each of the picots around the perimeter of the Venetian Lace as I crocheted the edging. The first or starting motif of the edging is difficult to join properly, so it’s hand sewn at the end using the tail from the end of the edging.

ch 8,
1) working in the back ridge (one thread) of ch, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across (=7sc)
2) ch 4 (=1 tr), ch 3, line up backs facing, sc in picot you wish to join to, ch 3, turn, sl st in 4th ch of beg tr, tr in next sc, ch 3, sk 3, tr in next sc, tr in last sc, ch 5, sl st at the bottom of last tr made, ch 1, turn
3) Work anywhere from 5 to 9 sc in ch-5 sp, sc one time in each of the next 2 tr, 3 sc in next ch-3 sp, sc one time in each of the last 2 tr (=15 sc),

Repeat step 2 to end.

Note: For a less rounded, more square corner, use the same picot twice as a join. To end, break thread long, weave in and attach the beginning motif of the edging.

  1. Thank you. I altered the following pattern; eliminating the picot and using a sc fill for a more rounded edge. I find it easier to work the edging pattern first, then see where it could be joined to the motif pattern and start joining (at end, just hand sew those first few (1-3) un-joined…. sometimes it’s just by eye or best guess.

    Standard Bone Edging with Picot Trim:
    ch 8,
    1) working in the back ridge (one thread) of ch, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across (=7sc)
    2) ch 7, turn, tr (yo2x) one time in each of the first 2 sc, ch 3, sk next 3 sc, tr one time in each of the last 2 sc, ch 5, do not turn, working in end of rows, sl st in next row (=4 tr and 3 sps) ch 1, turn
    3) working in next ch -5 sp: 4sc-ch3-4sc (ch3 is the “picot” that I skipped; probably replacing with 1sc), sc in next 2 tr, 3 sc in next ch-3 sp, sc in last 2 tr (=15 sc), ch **7 (**to join, ch 3, line up backs facing, sc in place you want to join, ch 3), turn
    4) tr in first 2 sc, ch 3, sk next 3 sc, tr in next sc, tr-ch5-sl st-in next sc, leave remaining sts unworked (=4 tr & 3 sps)

    Repeat rows 3&4 for desired length, ending with a row 3.
