Your wrists are sore, your fingers are throbbing and your eyesight went away about three hours ago, but you have just one more row to work up before your crochet design is complete. Yeah, we've all been there plenty of times. When you find the perfect crochet pattern to make it's like you're five years old all over again. You get giddy with a huge grin on your face and you can't wait to get your hands on the perfect crochet colors to start and finish your masterpiece. But wait, now that you're finished with your last row and all the ends are weaved in, you stare at it with a puzzled look. There's just something about it that you can't pinpoint. That's where we come in to help you!
Crochet edges and crochet borders are the greatest finishing touches to many crochet patterns out there. Buttons, appliques and bows are great embellishments too, but sometimes you want something a little more elegant and dainty. Whether the crochet borders are worked in lace or worsted weight yarn, there's just something about them that'll put your mind at ease knowing your project is complete and at its best.

If you've never worked with crochet borders or you're a beginner then we're here to teach you how to crochet edges with our easy-to-follow tutorials. Now is the time to customize your crochet design and go outside of your comfort zone. We know crochet itself is addicting, but wait until you start to work with crochet edging.

If it’s not buttons, appliqués or weaving in ends that complete your project then what is it? It’s edges of course! Crochet edges and crochet borders are the perfect finishing touch to many projects, especially blankets and towels. You can take just about any project and crochet a border around it to add a bit of elegance or flair.
In this eBook we’ve provided some of the best edging patterns we thought you’d enjoy. Crochet edges can be worked up using a variety of crochet stitches depending on what look you’re going for.
The Pineapple Swirl Edging is ideal for linens and other delicate crochet items as it's worked up using thread or lace. This is a chance to really develop your crochet skills all the way and to set that special pattern apart with this finishing touch. 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 crochet tutorial makes this an easy crochet pattern to complete.
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. This is perfect for that blanket you have lying around that just needs a touch of your crochet magic. 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. Lovies perform double duty by functioning as both cuddly stuffed animal and warm blanket, so it's the perfect choice for your little one. 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.
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. DIY home decor is a great way to make your home your own, to save money, and to tailor your interior design exactly the way you want it—and accent pillows for your couch, armchair, or bed are the ideal place to start. A well-designed pillow can really set a room's tone! 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 featuring delicate lace. 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 and draw out the other colors of your kitchen in an elegant yet personal way.
