How to add Edging to a crochet project

Hello Guys,

Hope you had a great fun filled weekend. I was busy planning for this Fall as I’m planning more crafts this season. There are many crochet patterns related to Autumn awaited these coming weeks. So keep exploring…!!

I’ve come up with a simple edging tutorial for you guys. You can add this edging to any crochet project. Beanies, scarfs, etc look very pretty with this edging. May it be a blanket or a strap of a bag or purse,  it will definitely enhance the beauty of it. I have used this edging for a Candle Holder Cover and also for a wish jar (another project I made for myself..). It is a quick and easy to make one like my other projects.

Here is the short and sweet pattern with a photo tutorial…. Take a look…

Crochet Edging Pattern:


  • Ch – chain
  • Sc – single crochet
  • Dc – double crochet
  • tr – treble crochet
  • Sl st – slip stitch
  • St –  stitch
  • Sp – space


Ch 4, yarn over, insert into the same st, pull up a loop, draw through 2 loops, leaving behind 2 loops on the hook. Repeat 1 more time. Now you have total 3 loops on your hook. Yarn over and draw through all the loops. Join with sl st into the 2nd ch. (Join by skipping 1 ch). Repeat until end. Join with sl st in the 1st ch of starting ch 4. Fasten off.

Here I have done the edging with dc, you can also make it with tr.










Isn’t it easy? And looks pretty too. It’s like a good little treat for beginners. Yay! I mean, I was so happy when my mom taught me this pattern. I simply loved it. I hope this post is useful to you as well. I would love to see how you use it.

You can also add crochet edging to cotton fabrics say, scarfs, tees, jeans, skirts, bedspreads, duvet covers, table cloths, napkins, etc.. You can say, there are n number of possibilities with it!! I will definitely come up with a tutorial on this very soon… Till then,… Keep Hooking!!
