Windows Border


"The Windows Border is an easy two round pattern that can work with just about any pattern, but it is particularly suited when you’re bordering squares or blocks that have been joined by one of the “loopy” methods, where chain loops are made all the way around the square. This would include the Tight Braid Join, Scallop Join, Flat Braid Join, and more! And I think it looks like little windows with pretty curtains - but the modern, graphic style will work with tons of patterns! For the hook and yarn, use whatever you’ve been using for the rest of your project. :)"


Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

This is one of those pages that gets bookmarked for future use. Im not working on any afghans right now, but I have a few in mind for the several car trips Im anticipating later this summer. This border pattern would work very well with just about any Mandela style block, too. Sometimes you need just a little extra for a finishing touch.

I like this idea. It's great for beginners as well as old time crocheters like myself. I have been doing this for 50 years and I haven't seen this before. But you can bet I will be using it to finish off a lot of my future projects. Thanks for sharing this.

This border was part of a CAL (crochet along). It consists of two easy to work rows that is made up of basically only double crochet. This border can be used on an endless list of projects. It gives such a nice and neat finish to the project. Just use the same yarn you are already using to finish the project.

I really like the way this border adds a classy, finished look to projects. It is simple enough to make, and adds just the right amount of appeal, without being too flashy or too feminine. It is a great one for projects for the home, or for the men in the family.

I can think of all sorts of uses for this wonderful crochet trim. Take a basic fleece blanket, for example. If we can trim them out with crochet thread, with a pretty picot trim, then surely we can jazz it up with the windows border. It looks like a stained glass.
