– Crochet Edgings –
Lately, I’ve been skipping the crochet edging on some of my more simple pieces. Sometimes I just like a straight edge. Other times, I may be working on a project that is so vibrant or simple that it demands a particular type of edging. With so many to choose from, don’t be intimidated about working those corners or trying something new. You can practice on a swatch or rip out what you don’t like until it’s absolutely lovely! With these patterns, you are sure to find something perfect for your project regardless of style or attitude. Let’s scroll down to view the edgings I’ve selected for this roundup and get to crocheting! (I’m ready to use a combination of these for my Lily’s Garden Striped Granny Afghan!)
This stitch combination is so pretty and works well for any blankets, linens, or towels. See it HERE.
