5 Crochet Edges to Have in Your Arsenal

Sure, you can leave it unfinished, but choose the right edging stitch... and let the oohs and ahhs roll in! Just to be clear, we're talking edgings here — the kind you work directly on a piece of crochet — not trims, which are worked separately, then attached. You might want to memorize these (seriously!). That way, when you get to the end of a project, you already have a few ideas about how to finish it off. One more thing: I've included a suggested number of stitches these edges can be worked on.

Crocheting a row of single crochet is best before you start an edge pattern so you can work on an even line, especially if you're working a side.

Afghan Sizes. By Linda A handy reference from information collected over the years from the internet, various publications, patterns, first hand knowledge, etc.

Afghan Sizes

The sizes given are intended to just cover the top of the intended item or recipient, plus a couple of inches extra. You'll need to make it larger be adding extra squares on three of the four sides, or go up a size, to allow extra for hanging over the side, tucking in, etc. I've also added a quick reference for the number of knitted or crocheted squares in the most common sizes for each size afghan. Where the number of squares does not work out exactly, the number given will make a slightly larger item than given under Measurements. Note: The bed sizes are based on Canadian measurements.
