Selvage (knitting)

Selvage (knitting)

The selvage of a knitted fabric consists the stitch(es) that end each row ("course") of knitting. Also called selvedge, the term derives from "self-edge". The selvage may be considered finished; it may also be used in seaming garments, or finished and reinforced using crochet or other techniques.

There are many methods for producing selvages.
