Edging #1 /OR/How to Finish a Receiving

from The Fur~Babies Momma
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Edging #1 /OR/How to Finish a Receiving
Edging #1 /OR/How to Finish a Receiving

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • chain
  • double crochet
  • single crochet
  • slip stitch

Pattern Description:

I always like to give babies a handmade gift . . . AND . . . I like to wrap their gifts up in receiving blankets.

This is a combination of the two . . . a receiving blanket with a handmade edging.

Now, receiving blankets aren't the only place this edging could be used. I can see it on sheets, pillowcases, table cloths, runners, etc, etc, etc.

The edging is attached to the blanket with a blanket stitch foundation round . . or what some might call a normal button hole stitch. This makes it easier for crocheters to add a crocheted edging.

Twenty-one step picture tutorial on how to add a Blanket Stitch to an unfinished item whichwill allow you to add an edging to the item.

VERY THOROUGH instructions . . . maybe to thorough for some.

The pattern calls for #10 crochet thread. To be honest, you may use any size of crochet thread. My favorite is listed under the Preferred Brand.

100% of the purchase price for the pattern goes to Natalie's 2nd Chance Shelter, a no-kill dog shelter in my home state of Indiana. It is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization.

The "Fur~Babies" and I thank you for your purchase.
