Edging - The Finishing Touch!

alt

One of the many things I appreciate about our blankets is that they really show off the love and caring we have for homeless pets. Crafters tend to forget that not everyone is a “fiber artist”, and so when an adoptive family meets a dog or cat, wrapped in a beautiful hand-crafted blanket, they are impressed! They are even more thrilled to find out their new family member gets to take it home!

A great finishing touch to a blanket is a decorative trim. It’s a wonderful way to add color, cover some uneven side-stitches or make a small blanket a bit bigger. Here are four ideas for the perfect trim to add to the crocheted blankets you may be working on. Try one of these, or just do a simple half-double crochet around the perimeter. The only “trick” is to make sure you put three half-double crochets into every corner stitch. Enjoy!        Edging Ideas Here!
