Shabby Chic Lace Edging Trim, Free Crochet Pattern

Hello Crochet Friends, 

Today I'd like to share a simple pattern for a lace edging or trim, which can be used for many different projects.

For example, it can be sewed onto pillow cases, flat sheets, towels, etc. It can be used to decorate the shelves of a shabby chic hutch or it can be made into a bookmark. There are so many possibilities!  

I really like the romantic shabby chic look of this edging. 

The tiny daisies in the photos grow on my front lawn. It's so nice to see the signs of spring everywhere around.

  1. Lovely and delicate lace, Olga:) Thanks for sharing!

  2. Many thanks for this lovely pattern, Olga! It's sweet and very beautiful ♥, and so versatile. I could imagine it would look very nice as a scarf, too! I love daisies as well. When I was a little child, I run around the house, picked daisies and daisies and shouted out happily "Bümpe, Bümpe!" That was my children's speech for "Blümchen" (little flowers) :-). Nice memories and I love those simple little beauties still today. Have a wonderful week! Nata xxx

    1. Yes, a scarf is another great idea for this pattern!

  6. You are so generous with your patterns, Olga, and this lace trim is just lovely. I hope to give it a try.

  7. Thank you for the lovely lace trim pattern.

  8. Hi olga! Thank you for your beautiful crochet pattern. After row 3, if i want to make a border to match row 1, how can i do that?

  9. Is it possible for you to name each of the 22 chain? I named them from A to V but my lace still looks weird after 3 tries...

  10. Thank you very much for this beautiful lace. Can you explain us how to finish it? The sides are higher than the centre. Thank you very much for your generosity.

  11. Wow perfect. Im going to crochet this to lengthen a dress
