Or to stabilize an edge and provide a place from which to pick up stitches? Learn all of these techniques, plus embellishment, decorative edgings, and more.
Note: No crochet experience required.
Smooth, plain, light colored, #4 (worsted-weight) yarn; needles of a size appropriate for your yarn; crochet hook roughly US size G (4mm).
