Crochet Edging

Crafts March 11, 2017

Crochet Edging

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel like being a little more fancy. I’ll set out real silverware, the good plates, and some nice glasses, and then remember that I don’t have any fancy cloth napkins. Once I have them, though, I might feel the need to add a little something to make them my own, like a crochet edging in a matching or coordinating color. Upping the fancy just a little can make dreary days seem a little brighter, and who doesn’t love a pretty table?

There are dozens upon dozens of crochet edging choices for your napkins, tablecloths, blankets, handkerchiefs, scarves, and other plain items in need of a makeover, but one of the prettiest edgings, I think, is this crochet edging from Filomena Crochet Tricot Costura.

The stitch itself is light, letting the fabric stand out above the stitches, blending into the overall look as a simple, elegant finish. It’s also pretty simple to do and with the photo tutorial and Google Translate (the original blog post is in Portuguese), following along is a breeze.

To make your own edging, you’ll need the yarn and crochet hook size of your choice (depends on what you’re adding edging to – if you’re adding to a handkerchief, you’ll want a small size, but if you’re adding onto a blanket, you’ll want a bigger size), and the item you’re adding onto, which in the tutorial is a dish cloth.

Filomena’s simple instructions and photos will guide you through the process and the results will be beautiful and make you feel a little extra fancy.

If you want to try this variation of crochet edging, you can find the free crochet pattern by visiting Filomena Crochet Tricot Costura. Be sure to check out her other free patterns as well, there’s plenty to choose from and more than one item in need of crochet edging!
