Crochet Edgings For Baby Blankets

There are so many wonderful things about knitting and crocheting, but one of the best is that you can customize your projects to suit your taste. You can make them as simple or complicated as you like, with plain edges or elaborate trims.

This tutorial will show you how to crochet edgings for baby blankets and other knitted pieces using a variety of different stitches. You’ll find instructions here for ruffles made from single crochet stitches as well as shells worked in double trebles (or double-doubles). We’ve also included scalloped edges which look great on blankets – but they also work very well when applied to other items like beanies hats or scarves!

First up is the ruffled edging.

The ruffled edging is made of chain stitches and can be used on the edges of any crocheted blanket.

  • Make a chain that’s a few stitches more than the width of your edge. For example, if you are making an edging for a baby blanket that is 40 inches long, then make your chain 46 stitches long.
  • Work single crochet stitches into each stitch from the very beginning until you have reached your desired length (in this case, approximately 9 inches). You will have 21 single crochet rows when all is said and done with this pattern (and it’s supposed to be folded over).
  • To finish off your work neatly, turn it upside down so its underside faces upward and sew up some loose ends by sewing through both layers of fabric together at once using blue thread or similar colored yarn—this should create an invisible seam between fabric pieces so that nothing unravels later on!

Next, we have a longer version of the ruffled edging, the full ruffle.

The next edging is the full ruffle. It’s a longer version of the ruffled edging and it’s worked in exactly the same way, except that you crochet around the entire edge of your blanket rather than just one side. This creates a really elegant look that looks especially nice in white or cream colors, but can also be done in any color you like.

Then there’s this crocheted picot edging, which looks very elegant in white.

Picot edging is also known as picot edge, and it’s a decorative edge that has been around for centuries. The word “picot” comes from the French word piquer, meaning “to prick.” In this case, your hook will be used to prick holes into your yarn—a lot of them! It’s worked in any size or color you like, and can be worked in any stitch pattern (for example: single crochet [SC], half double crochet [HDC], or double crochet [DC]).

You can even work picot edging in rows instead of rounds if you prefer—just make sure each row is longer than the previous one so that it creates a smooth curve in your blanket when it’s finished. Don’t forget to keep your tension very loose when working picots; otherwise they’ll look too tight against each other and won’t have much space between them for threading later on!

This little shell edging is also a classic look and goes well with both simple knitted squares and more complex knit patterns.

This little shell edging is also a classic look and goes well with both simple knitted squares and more complex knit patterns. This edging can be worked in any weight of yarn, but the smaller you go, the tighter your stitches will need to be to create an attractive finish.

For beginners who want to try their hand at crocheting, this might be a good choice for a blanket that’s crocheted by beginners because it requires only very basic stitches: chain stitch and double crochet. The shell pattern is made up of small shells (that’s where the pattern gets its name) that create a lacy scallop when they’re done all around your blanket!

Here’s a pretty scalloped edge, which looks almost like a flower when it’s done.

Scalloped edging is a classic look, and it’s easy to make. You can use this edge on any knit pattern that you like, and it will add a beautiful touch. If you’re looking for something with a bit more detail than just basic scallops, this is the technique for you!

Takeaway:There are many crochet border options for baby blankets

With the right crochet edging, your blanket will look even more professional and beautiful. You can use the same yarn you used for your blanket or choose a different color, depending on how you want to finish off the edges. Try experimenting with different styles, such as picots or shells!
