Crocheted Wave Edging

As you may have noticed, I'm working on quite a few baby projects lately - there's a good reason for that.  In October, our second grandchild is due - a boy!  In my experience, you can never have too many flannel blankets, so a couple of months ago I bought a bunch of nice flannel prints to edge with crochet.  This print reminds me of waves - thus the edging name!  It tends to be a bit tighter of a pattern, so be sure to crochet very loose to prevent the edge from puckering.

If you haven't edged a blanket before, see this post for how to get the foundation row in.

Row 1:  Single crochet in each foundation row stitch.

Row 2:  Single crochet in the first stitch from Row 1, chain two, skip two, and single crochet in the following stitch.  Repeat all around the blanket.  At the corners, you may need to only skip one to get your corners to lie flat.

Row 3:  In the first chain two space, single crochet, half double crochet, two double crochet, half double crochet, and single crochet.  Single crochet in the next chain two space.  Repeat the pattern around the blanket and fasten off.

After working on girl clothes for little c for the last four years, it's a switch to start thinking little boy!  I have some ideas you'll be seeing in the next while .....

Happy Creating!  Deborah
