Emily Explains: Edging for Cecelia

It is great to see all of your projects in our Cecelia KAL. Some of you are knitting it so fast! I thought today I would share some tips and explain how the edging is attached to the circle.

After completing Increase Round 5, leave a long tail and cut your yarn. Cast on 6 stitches using a provisional cast on.

You can choose from one of the methods demonstrated in the videos below:


The edging is worked back and forth, and is fastened to the outside edge of your blanket as you go. On every right side row, you knit the last stitch of your edging together with one stitch from the circular needle – the body of the blanket.

I like to work with one double pointed needle and one end of my circular needle, which is holding all the stitches from my blanket. Continue slowly around the circle, creating your edging and binding off the stitches held on your circular needle.

Follow along as I demonstrate:

Think you have the hang of it?!

When you complete working around the circle, graft the live stitches on your needle together with the provisional cast-on edge.

For a reminder on grafting, check out our how-to video:

I am looking forward to seeing the finished projects on Ravelry : )

Happy Making,
