15 Easy Crochet Edging Ideas

No crochet project is complete without crochet edging.  If you aren’t familiar, crochet edging is a finishing technique, often in the form of a border that gives your design a polished, complete look.

Crochet edging can elevate a design or affect the entire style of your project.  Edging can range from wide to narrow, straight to ruffled, and everything in between.

Adding a ruffled edge to a shirt cuff, a nice border to a blanket or pillow, or finishing a garment collar are all common ways that edging is used to finish a project.

But which edging design should you use?  We put together 15 Easy Crochet Edging Ideas to help you find the perfect finishing touch for your project.

 

Crochet Dishcloth Edging

This crochet edging pattern was originally designed to go with a cotton openwork dishcloth pattern, and it works perfectly for that project. It also works for simpler dishcloths and can be used as a border for any square or rectangular crochet project.
