Edgings, borders, taking off in a new direction - all call for working stitches into the sides of other stitches. It's not a new stitch that's the tricky part here - it's knowing where to insert the hook. Here's how I do it.
In other words - play with it! I've run into various "formulas" and "rules" out there, but in my personal experience, each project needs some futzing around to get it just right. For one project one method will work, and then the next project I do will require something else to get the look I'm after. Don't be afraid to play, and don't hesitate to frog what isn't working for you. One of the great things about crochet is the easy ability to rip back your stitches without ruining the whole project - this goes double for edgings! So play, experiment, and have fun!
