When I posted my crochet throw a while back, I promised to post the edging pattern so here it is. The laciness adds a lovely dimension to the throw, and I’m definitely planning on using it on a shawl sometime soon.
There are four rounds, but the first is simply a base layer of sc all around your working edge to secure the edging to, and the second is just chain 5 and chain 3 loops to secure the next two rounds to… anyway enough talking about it and on with the pattern!
Round 1: Join edge yarn and sc in each stitch around the blanket, join with ss to finish the round. I went with 3 sc in each corner, but just add enough stitches to the corner so it stays flat and doesn’t pull.
Round 2: Chain 5, skip next 4 sc, (dc, ch3, dc) in next sc, ch 5, skip next 4 sc, sc in next sc. repeat around, join with ss to finish the round.
Round 3: Chain 5, sc in next ch-5 space, 3dc, ch3, 3dc in next ch-3 space, sc in next ch-5 space, repeat around, join with ss to finish the round.
Round 4: Ch1, *sc in next 5ch, dc in next dc, picot, dc in next dc, dc in next dc, picot, (2dc, picot, 2dc) in next ch3 space, picot, dc in next dc, dc in next dc, picot, dc in next dc, sc in next ch5 space* Repeat between * and * around. Join with ss into ch1 to finish the round.
Picot = chain 5, ss in fourth ch from hook.
And in case you missed it the first time around here is a little video of me crocheting the last round of the edging…
It’s frustrating for me to watch because there are so many little hiccups (yarn catching/missing the stitch etc) in my crocheting… I’m usually a very smooth crocheter!
Happy to answer any questions about this, just sing out 🙂
Have a happy day! J xox
