Pom Pom Edge

Pom Pom Edge
I was looking for a cute border to put on a granny square blanket I just finished I needed to modify it for my blanket and wanted to remember how I did it so I thought I would post how I did it here I just love this cute pom pom stitch To start join with a single crochet then chain 6 3 double crochet in 3rd chain from hook holding back last stitch of each double crochet on your hook You will have 4 stitches Yarn over and pull thru all loops (cluster stitch made) Chain 3 Make a second cluster stitch in the loop that closed your first cluster stitch Join with a slip stitch where your first cluster begins To do this go thru the stitch leaving 1 part of the stitch in the back and 2 parts in the front Single crochet in your next space There you have it.... Cute little pompoms along the edge of your blanket They do take a little while to make but are well worth the cute factor that they give to my blanket!! Robin

Borders [Facts + Tutorials] Borders are one big key when it comes to giving your crochet works a personal touch. I wanted to compile a few facts and tutorials if you feel like experimenting / practicing your skills. I am more a fan of the Afghan Borders than the Lace Edging if you ask me.

Edging for Openwork Crochet Dishcloth This is an edging to crochet for the cotton openwork dishcloth. Work in back loops of stitches unless otherwise directed.

Work 36 sc across the top edge of the work, making sure to space them evenly. Spike Cluster Stitch (SPC) The Spike Cluster Stitch, or SPC, is featured in the Blue Agave Phone Pouch pattern. It’s a purely decorative stitch, fun to make but hard to describe in text. So what to do? Make a video!
