How to Crochet Edges & Make Crochet Borders on Patterns
When you search the web for crochet edging, of course you're going to come across many patterns, but we've saved you the hassle by providing those tutorials in this eBook. From easy crochet edging to a bit more advanced, we have a few your certain to like.
The Pineapple Swirl Edging is ideal for linens and other delicate crochet items as it's worked up using thread or lace. The shell stitch is done by crocheting three double crochets, chaining two and working three double crochets again. With 12 rows of double crochets and shells, the beautiful pineapple swirl edging will begin to show itself.
The Zig Zag Edging is also worked up in lace, but you can easily substitute it for another type of yarn if you wish. Crochet edges like this are practical for household items like fancy towels, living room or bedroom curtains and even pillowcases. The step-by-step visual tutorial makes this an easy crochet pattern to complete.
The Easiest Ever Crocheted Edging is just that: it's the easiest ever! With your choice of yarn all you need to do is double crochet, slip stitch, double crochet and slip stitch again; it's that simple. You can repeat those stitches as many times as required to edge your item.
When learning how to crochet edges, it's best to have a pattern in mind before diving right in. When you make crochet borders on patterns you'll find that you have more patience if you start out with easy designs than the more intricate ones. This eBook provides some cute and easy patterns for you to follow.
The Quick and Easy Crocheted Blanket Edging Patterns are unique designs in that the crochet edging gets worked around fabric or a material instead of a crocheted piece. There are three easy crochet patterns to choose from within this tutorial. From fleece blankets to flannel and even receiving blankets, the crochet blanket edging is sure to complete your piece. Of course you can work up this crochet edging on a crochet blanket, too, but the instructions pair up with a blanket that already has a set amount of stitching on it.
The Monster Fleece Lovey Blankets have been a hit with our readers as well as babies and kids. Lovey blankets are great "friends" and comforters to babies when they're feeling scared, fussy or lonely. The crochet edges are worked onto a piece of fleece that will later have arms, legs and a head attached to it. A skip stitch blade is required in order to poke holes into the fleece before working up the crocheted edge. You'll love creating this little guy just as much as the kids will love having him.
Have you ever wanted to give your home a face lift, but you just didn't want to spend the money on it? Well now you CAN get that face lift without breaking the bank. With your leftover scraps of yarn (or a trip to the yarn store), you can redesign your home decor to get the exact look you want.
The Pillow Edgings by Bernat are a great way to give any room a simple makeover. This pattern features four crochet edging options: picot, tassel, ruffle and lace. With a steel crochet hook and cotton yarn you can embellish your pillows in a fancy and tasteful way.
The Lace Napkin Edging is a nice way to spruce up those fancy guest napkins that you use once a year (ok, maybe twice). Add your own special touch to your napkins with this simple crochet pattern. If you can find thread in an accent crochet color, that's where you're going to get the best result. Accent colors will really make the design pop.
When you download How to Crochet Edges & Make Crochet Borders on Patterns, it really will change your mentality on the way you finish your crochet patterns. Accents, embellishments and ribbons all look very nice, but crochet edges and crochet borders are the way to go. When you know how to crochet edges and make borders, it'll open up your options to more crochet designs and then you'll have an even bigger plethora of crochet patterns in your collection.
