Crochet Edged Fleece Blanket

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I love how fast and easy these are to make, and I took my time finding the perfect fleece and yarn combination. You can make one of these in about an hour--perfect for twins and triplets! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be sure to use fleece fabric-- it doesn't fray on the edges. Other types of fabrics won't hold up, but fleece is perfect for this project.

What you will need

  • fleece
  • crochet hook
  • rotary cutter

Q&A with Linda Permann

difair asked:
Your crochet edgings are such a nice finishing touch! They turn a simple piece of fleece into something truly special!

thank yoU!
YarnOwlCreation asked:
I have been dying to make one of these! What did you use to make the holes for the border? I was thinking they have to have some sort of spiky, rotary tool. Thank you for your input!! :)
Linda Permann answered:
I used a rotary blade from Skipstitch.com. I go into depth about how to use it in the class, I highly recommend the tool!
Maria Colon asked:
I would like to make this blanket. What do you use to make the holes in the blanket??? I am a beginner in crochet. Is there any requirement to take the Crafty Crochet Embellishments course? Can I pay it with pay pal???
Linda Permann answered:
You just need a reliable internet connection and the desire to learn! You can pay with a credit card or with paypal. In the class, I use a special rotary cutting blade to make the holes (see comment below), but I also discuss other ways you can make them.
