Crochet Tutorial - Cute Bobble Edging

If you are looking for an edging that is both perfectly pretty and super simple, then this is the one for you.  It's great for those blankets that you want something a little less girly around the edge.  This is one of my favourite go to borders and is so, so simple, making it perfect for beginners.



Abbreviations
US terms

dc - double crochet
sc - single crochet
sl st - slip stitch

This border requires an even number of stitches around your blanket.  If you have an odd number, simply increase or decrease 1 stitch on the first round.  Or if you are like me just fudge it (it's only 1 stitch).

Attach your yarn anywhere on your blanket with a sc


Work sc's into every stitch along each side and 3 sc into each corner stitch


continue in this way around your blanket and join with a sl st to the first sc.


Now turn your blanket over and work from the wrong side,
dc in the first stitch and...




...sl st in the next st


Repeat these 2 stitches around your blanket and join with a sl st to starting stitch.

This is how it looks from the front


The effect reminds me of icing piped around a cake, so cute!


I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and don't forget to share your photos on my Facebook page.

Take care
