Crochet an Easy Edging for an Afghan or Baby Blanket:

You can crochet an easy, basic, no-frills edging in rounds of single crochet stitch; this is usually the type of edging I prefer for colorful patterned afghans, crocheted quilts, or any other sort of crocheted afghans that are really "busy". This edging is also a great way to finish off afghans for guys, or baby blankets for boys. This edging is totally guy-friendly since it isn't frilly, lacy or froo-froo.

The edging you see pictured was worked around the outer edge of a gingham check baby blanket, which is also available as a free pattern on our website.

Edging Instructions:

Row 1: Work 1 sc st in each st, all the way around. When you get to a corner, work 2 ch sts to turn the corner and then continue crocheting 1 sc st in each st.

Row 2: Work 1 sc st in each st, all the way around. When you get to a corner, work 1 sc st into the ch-2 sp created in the row below; then ch 2, work another sc st into the same ch-2 sp, then resume crocheting sc sts all the way around.

Rows 3 and up: Repeat row 2 until the edging is the size you want it to be.
