Easy Crocheted Edging

This grackle has gone fancy.

Deck the Halls, 24" x 29", #6-cut wool on linen. Adapted from a block print by Heather O'Hara, hooked with permission by Debra Smith, Landisburg, Pennsylvania, 2014.

Every once in a while, you hook a rug that calls out for a little special treatment, something with a little pizzazz to finish it off with a flair. My Deck the Halls was one of those rugs. The stately grackle with the ornament kept demanding a special edging, something suitable for the holiday season. Something elegant but not too fussy.

What would satisfy the demanding bird? A little crocheted edging might do the trick. Out came the crochet hook and my stash of wool rug yarns that I use for whipping my rugs.

The pattern is not with the article. The article is mostly about the edging used on the rug. You might contact the author of the article, maybe she would share it since it is very misleading.

I also am wondering if this pattern is available. I love this design, and it is one picture of rugs that I show when I demonstrate at our local fair. The pattern is stunning and made with wonderful craftsmanship!

Article says access to the pattern but it is not here.

I apologize for the confusion! Only some of our articles are printed in full. You would be able to purchase the magazine that includes this article here:

But does the issue include this pattern? I am subscribed and find this misleading and disappointing.

The above article says to get this exclusive pattern, check out the issue page, but I do not see any reference to where I can order the pattern... Help????
