How to Crochet Borders and Edging

Crochet Borders – Crochet Edging Patterns

Do you ever find yourself with a finished project, but it just doesn’t look complete? Maybe you need to add crochet edging to complete your pattern!


Adding crochet edging can be done with different crochet designs. There are so many different looks and textures to choose from, it all depends on what you want the outcome of your project to look like. There is arc lace edging, bobble edging, granny stripe edging and so on…

An edge is worked directly on a piece of crochet, unlike a trim, which is worked separately then attached into position on the fabric (crocheted or not).

Simple crochet edging can be added to just about any project; it makes your design look complete and a bit more sophisticated. If you’re unsure of how to crochet borders then you’re in luck because we have some great crochet edging patterns for you to follow.

Your choice of crochet edge can make or break your design. Leaving an edge unfinished is not the end of the world, but if you really want your project to soar, choosing an appropriate finishing stitch can really take it over the edge!
