I'm looking for an edging pattern to knit onto a baby blanket. 1" to 2" wide and not lacy; well maybe one YO but I don't want it all holey. I'm picturing wide triangles with one YO following the triangle edge about 3-4 rows in from the finished edge. I suppose in desperation I could try to come up with my own but that could be bad since I've never done any edging ever. :teehee:

IF I do find something to chose between is there a preference over picking up and knitting or seaming it on once complete? PU and knit seems like it would guarantee a good fit. I'm rambling.... help!

THAT is PRECIOUS! Thanks for the link to the pattern. Just added it to my "to knit" list (which is, already, WAY too long)
