This lace triangle is worked from outside in, starting with the Lace Edging, which is worked as a single strip of fabric with a yarn over selvedge. After the Lace Edging is completed, stitches for the main section of the triangle are picked up from the yarn over selvedge and the remainder of the piece is shaped until only a few stitches remain at the top center of triangle. To finish, these remaining stitches are grafted together, rather than bound off.
