Hello lovelies , well it's not quite the ta dah post , but bear with me , I'm sooo nearly there ...hip, hip, Hurray :0)
I've been working on the edging this weekend . After trying a couple of patterns I didn't like , I've pulled it all out and gone back to the same edging I used on my square throw...
I made this up for that project , though no doubt it's not original .It's so simple but effective , just the right amount of prettiness without being too fussy ...in my opinion :0).....
Here's a quick "how to " for those of you who are interested ...
Working in the spaces between the clusters of the previous round , make 2 U.S. double ( U.K. treble ) crochet ...
Then make 2 more double/trebles in the same space.Then repeat in the next space ....
On the corners I simply added an extra chain 2 and 2 dc....
And that's it . Told you it was simple . I'm calling this "Double V Edging" as I've had a look around on t'internet and I can't actually find another example .I'll add a link in my side bar , with my other tutorials , in case you want to find it in the future.
Back Soon with the finished project .. can't wait to show you ,and I think it's going to be just in time , with freezing weather and snow forecast for later this week .
Lovely, thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Oh it is lovely, I have used this edging on a baby blanket completely by accident when the pattern I was trying for went wrong lol! It looks gorgeous. Can't wait for your ta-dah xReplyDelete
We have yet to see our first frost here--I really want it to get cold (I'm an odd one like that )
Woah! It is absolutely perfect for the granny stripe!!! Well done!ReplyDelete
Beautiful edging! Thanks for sharing Jacquie. :)ReplyDelete
That's a wonderful edge and so simple. I will definitely use it. Thank you. xReplyDelete
Very pretty. That white edging really sets it off.ReplyDelete
It's me again. Your little fawn colored bunny looks similar to my Nippit.ReplyDelete
Ooh that edging is lovely and sounds like it will be simple to do too, hurrah!! Thanks for the tutorial xxReplyDelete
That looks very yummy. Next year will be my year for crochet and I will put in to practise all these fantastic stitches...Oh my goodness my first NY resolution :) xReplyDelete
It's lovely and I think it looks really effective - going to try this for definite!!ReplyDelete
Blanket is looking lovely - looking forward to seeing it in all its glory soon. I invented an edging for one of my blankets, couldn't find it on the internet but then it appeared in a book as 'block' edging! Haven't seen one like yours before though!ReplyDelete
This edge is really nice, simple but effective! Thanks for sharing such a nice idea!ReplyDelete
Nice! I am using the same edging on my baby blanket. Although I am not making it, my friend is finishing it off as I can't crochet anymore.(Had just a couple of rows to go and the edging and the baby is growing quick, soon 4 mths old...) So sad. But I love this edging. Can't remember where I found it... somewhere in internet-sphere. Good choice and I would love to see the blanket in full.ReplyDelete
Oh wow I LOVE this edging! Thanks so much for posting about it!ReplyDelete
It's really effective - thanks for sharing. I'm looking forward to the big reveal!ReplyDelete

I love it and totally agree with you - it's simple, not too fussy, but still very pretty. It makes it look "finished". And I can't wait to see the big Ta-Dah - you've worked so hard on it and love it so much, so of course it will look fantastic!ReplyDelete

Love your edging! I'm using it on a granny square baby blanket. The blanket in light pink and edging in white. I think it will be beautiful.ReplyDelete
I know this is an old post but thank you so much! I’ve tried every border imaginable for my c2c granny square blanket which has a very irregular edge - nothing was looking neat or finished and I tried everything. It’s for a baby boy so I didn’t want huge ruffle; this border gives a nice finished look, in the irregular side spaces, yet still looks boyish enough on my project. Many many thanks!!!ReplyDelete
I am making two hairpin lace afgans for my granddaughters and am hoping I will be able to use this for my edging. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much this is lovely,I will definitely use this beautiful edging.ReplyDelete
