I'm a knitter by nature and currently I'm making a lacy drop-stitch shawl with Rowan kidsilk haze. It's pretty open and airy and quite stretchy, but thus far it isn't knocking my socks off. I can do some basic crochet stitches and I was wondering...if I did a shell stitch all around the outside of this shawl would it take away its stretchiness? I want to keep this thing as loose as possible...I don't want to do the shell stitch if it means it'll tighten up the edges.

Replies are much appreciated! Grin

If its knit and its stretchy it probably won't make a difference to crochet around it. Its probably better if you did a crab st or reverse single crochet around it. This may keep your edge from stretching further but the item as a whole no.Have you thought of fringing it?
