Step up your embellishments with this corkscrew stitch edging!
Curlique, spiral, ringlet, corkscrew, rotini ~ However you call it, this stitch reminds me of a little moppet who made lots of movies. I like to refer to it as the Shirley Temple stitch! (Hope that's not a copyright infringement :-) )
This variegated C2C baby blanket that I rescued from Goodwill needed a little sprucing up, so I added this white corkscrew edging for some fun and pop! And to show you how simple it is!
VOILA! Fun and funky, right?
My interest in this stitch is the direct result of a hazard in my backyard.
Have you ever had to stake up a young tree and tether it with cable so it will grow straight? Well, we did, last fall.
And since then, I have tripped or almost tripped on the cable several times. Worse than that, my grandson RJ had a run-in with it!
Something had to be done. RJ has a little sister now. So...
I crocheted a vibrant red corkscrew edge all along the cable!
