How to Crochet Fringed Edging

How to Crochet Fringed Edging is the last in a little series of posts I’ve been writing about pretty edgings you can crochet.

Most of them are very easy. They can be used to give a pretty detail to bags, purses, hair bands, blankets, throws and shawls. The can be also added to non crocheted things like towels and napkins.

Fringed edging is also very easy. Of course, you could make a fringe in the usual way, but it’s nice to have a choice and to be able to do things differently sometimes.

Instructions for Crocheting Fringed Edging

This is very easy to do. All you have to do is make lots of chains joined to the edge you are working on with double crochet.

It will turn out a little bit neater if you start with an odd number of sttiches. It doesn’t make that much of a difference though, so don’t worry if you don’t.

It’s also possible to crochet a fringed edging using 2 colours.

1. In the original colour, 1 ch, miss one stitch, dc into next stitch.

2. 25 ch

3. Miss 1 stitch, dc into next stitch

4. 25 ch

5. Miss 1 stitch, dc into next stitch.

Keep going like this until you reach the end of the row.

Then with your 2nd colour:

6. Join yarn at the first free dc. It will be between the 2 ends of the first fringe loop you made.

7. 25 ch

8. dc into next free stitch. So you will miss out 1 stitch (it will already have been worked!).

I'm Anna and I live in Norfolk with my four beautiful boys, my husband and a three legged cat. I don't have an actual craft room due to the fact that we are six messy people living in a not very big house. I do however have a pile of unfinished projects. Thankfully there is plenty of room in cyberspace, so make a cup of tea, pull up a chair and make yourself at home! And please leave me comments! And maybe like me on Facebook :)

    • Hi Diane, I used double knit and a 3.5 mm hook. To do the base I did a row of chains, then a couple of rows of double crochet. If you need more help, let me know.
