I just knitted up a batch of simple garter stitch washcloths- and I want to edge them... but can't find anything in the knitting books I have. Any suggestions for a new knitter?<br>
A nice simple stitch to border them a bit would be great.<br>
thanks!

Do you know how to crochet? My nana crochet's the edges of dishtowels with a simple stitch ... I don't know the name, but it's like she crochet's three times into the same stitch so the edge has a little ruffle to it. Maybe someone with more technical crochet experience can help (as long as you know how to crochet! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> ).

You could pick up stitches around the edges and do a seed stitch border, but I'd be more inclined to shell stitch crochet around. Knitting would just be much slower.
