|There is an easy way to put delicate edgings on pillowcases, slips, and dollies. Using your serger you can simulate the delicate look of crocheting with less time and effort. You will have to play with your serger to set it up. You will probably use a 3-thread overlock using the left needle. You may choose to use one color thread or a multi-colored thread. Three spools will be enough for a small project. Bigger projects will need additional thread. Set the serger for a stitch length that is the longest and a stitch width that is the widest. You do not have to disengage the blade. Basically, if you have a tube shape or a circular edge, you can serge around the edge once. When you come back to the beginning, continue sergering by dropping down another row so that the top of the stitches is positioned in the middle of the previous row. Continue for as many rows as you think are appropriate. If you want a ruffled edge, shorten the stitch length by one number every row or every few rows depending on how much ruffling you want. Search the internet by keying in SERGER CROCHET to find booklets you can purchase on this subject. Here is an example of my serger crochet scarf where I started with a base of clear elastic the length of my desired scarf.
