Double V Edging

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 ...



Chain 2....



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 .

  12. 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!

  14. 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.
