I’m a knitter through and through, but after seeing the lovely granny stripe blanket that Lucy of Attic24 crocheted, well… I had to have a go. It took me 18 months but I finally completed it (left).
I spent days searching for just the right edging that both me and Maxi Minx liked. She had her heart set on hearts, but I couldn’t find any edging patterns. Although I’m a pretty inexperienced crocheter, I decided to make it up myself. So I did! I wrote it up as a photo tutorial and am really happy to share it with you for free because it’s not to the same exacting standards that I write my knitting patterns – just click on the button at the bottom and download the 6-page PDF.
You can do the line of hearts as a sturdy row of bunting, an unusual edging, or as part of a border.
I hope you enjoy it! If you spot any tweaks that would make it an even nicer edging, why not share those tips for other crocheters in the comments below this post? It would also be wonderful if you shared photos of your finished work over on my Facebook page for me to admire. I might also have to private-message any contributors with a 15% discount code, valid for any pattern or knitted product in my shop… 😉 Thanks very much!
