6. Torchon Edge

"Torchon Edge" is a garter stitch border with eyelets framing solid diamonds nestled in a saw-tooth lower edge. The stitch count changes with every row of the 12-row repeat, steadily increasing from 8 to 11 and then back down again.

This is the second pattern we have seen characterized in its title as "torchon." It is a term borrowed from the European bobbin lace tradition, indicating a lace worked in coarse thread with simple geometric designs.
