Petals to Picots: Quick and Easy Crocheted Blanket Edging Patterns. You don’t need to have a lot of money, time, or even crochet experience to create a special blanket to give as a gift or to donate to a child in need. These quick and easy crocheted blanket edging patterns add a handmade touch to any fabric blanket. In fact, they are so quick and easy that you can still whip up a few blankets for our Project Linus Cyber Blanket Drive. To start, pick out a fabric blanket. You can use fleece, flannel, or even a receiving blanket. Many discount stores carry small fleece blankets at very reasonable prices or you can check out the pretty varieties available through my affiliate links here or here. The easiest approach is to find a blanket that already has stitching around it for you to crochet into (Fig. 1a and 1b). You can just insert your hook through the top of the blanket stitch, pull up a loop (Fig. 1c), and crochet as usual (Fig. 1d).

Crocheting is one of these traditions and a way we have of passing down our knowledge is by making patterns. This pattern is for a Starburst Afghan and is from a very old handwritten pattern, one of many that will be featured in the ‘Vintage Crochet Pattern Series’ over the next few weeks. It’s been changed a bit from the original, mainly being turned into a throw size afghan rather than a Queen sized one and changes in the pattern’s phrasing, but in essence is still the same.
