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.
If you missed the previous tutorials, then can be found here:
If you would like a free printable of instructions for crocheting all 4 of these edgings, plus 2 extra ones, the link is at the bottom of the post!
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!).
