Crochet Edging

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!

    DIY Birdhouse ... or Bird Trailer

    by on October 6, 2017 - 0 Comments

    My family loves birds. My grandma and grandpa live in the hills between North and South Carolina, and when I call I always ask my grandparents what birds have been around. They usually have chickadees, wrens, cardinals, and tufted titmouses (which happen to be my favorite). My dad loves hummingbirds and has several feeders on […]

  • Crochet Wallets

    I’ve been looking for a new wallet for months. My old wallet is a particular favorite, picked up at Target because it was a small, blue pleather item with a black French Bulldog on it with red glasses and a bowtie. After a few years, however, the pleather is wearing off and the design is […]

    PVC is one of those materials that, like duct tape, that can be used for so many more things than the original intended purpose. I’ve seen PVC used for everything from cosplay to birdhouses. PVC is a strong material, easy to work with, and a hardy product that can withstand plenty of hard knocks and […]

    It’s difficult to find the right big bag — you don’t want anything too bulky, but you also don’t want a bag that’s flimsy – after all, you’re going to be carrying groceries, library books, craft projects, snacks, and the necessities and you need something you can depend on, that won’t snap or tear or […]
