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.
Bone Edging for Venetian Lace
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.
