Around the Corner Crochet Borders with Edie Eckman
Add punch to an afghan or make those plain sweaters into something special with a unique crocheted border. Discover the secrets to make crocheted edgings continue around square corners, incorporating the edging design into the corner shaping for an unbroken pattern. We'll practice a number of fun and unique crocheted edgings, including 3-dimensional borders, ruffles and unique crocheted fringe.
Note: Must be familiar with ch, sc, hdc and dc
Homework swatches; smooth, light-colored sport, #3 or #4 (dk or worsted-weight) wool in at least 2 coordinating colors, appropriate sized hooks, scissors
