Crochet edging by Anna Nikipirowicz

The sun is out; the trees and flowers are beginning to bloom…  spring has most definitely sprung on this side of the earth! For this week’s tutorial, I’m going to show you how to make a beautiful crochet edging, which is a perfect way of adding a bit of spring to your wardrobe and home. Sew it onto the hem of your favourite dress or attach it to the edge of shelves in your kitchen for an instant boost of happy!

The edging is made lengthways, which means you do not have to measure and estimate how many chains you need to make to give you the length you need, all you do is just carry on making until the edging is the desired size.

Materials

I’m using Paintbox Cotton DK and 3.5mm (US E/4) crochet hook

Abbreviations

Ch-sp – chain space

Dc (US sc) – double crochet (US single crochet)

Miss (US skip) – omit stitches

Tch – turning chain

Tr (US dc) – treble (US double crochet)

Ss – slip stitch
