There are hardly any textiles that can not be embellished with a matching border. So the homemade lace adorns the purchased cotton towel as well as the self-crocheted doily or the worn sweater. You can choose from countless possible patterns for your border. In this article we introduce you to seven variants.

Some crocheted pieces formally demand a befitting completion in the form of a border. So hardly a baby blanket comes out without a cuddly top. If the textiles are knitted or crocheted, there are easy starting points for a border. For towels, curtains and similar things, you must first provide the edge with even holes through which your crochet hook passes. Then an ornament with lace is also possible here. Choose your favorite pattern from straight, round, smooth, wide or narrow borders. Incidentally, crocheting borders is a great exercise for beginners as the same stitches are repeated very often!

Crochet border

1. Smooth edge

Prior knowledge:

  • chain stitches
  • Fixed stitches
  • rod

The simplest way to make a border is to crochet the last row or round in a different color. Depending on what the instructions provide, for example, crochet can be crocheted or crocheted. Our smooth edge here goes a little further. We start from a final round with fixed stitches. In order to make the whole thing stand out not only in terms of color, but also in terms of design, we incorporate deeper inserted chopsticks at regular intervals.

Specifically, it looks like you are fixing the yarn for the border with a warp stitch at any point. Then crochet a tight stitch. Next, make a chopstick. But you stab in the penultimate row. There are now always two alternating stitches and a lower pricked chopsticks.

If you have to crochet around a corner, proceed as follows: After the last tight loop of the straight, crochet two loops. Only then does it continue with the first fixed loop of the next straight. At the end, wrap a crocheted border with a slit stitch in the first stitch.

2. Bridges

Prior knowledge:

  • chain stitches
  • Fixed stitches
  • stitches

Crocheting small bridges or bows as a border is almost as easy as the smooth edge. Start with a chain stitch to fasten the thread for the border. Then crochet a tight stitch in the same stitch. This is followed by four air meshes. Skip two stitches and attach the chain with a tight loop in the third stitch from the origin. It follows immediately the next chain of air mesh with four air meshes. Crochet in this change of four air stitches and a strong stitch in every third stitch the entire edging.

If you have to crochet around a corner, you can do six instead of four. Alternatively, you can also crochet a single crochet in both corner stitches. Between these two fixed stitches are two air meshes.

The bridge can easily be extended to a wider peak. For that crochet another round as just described. Instead of the fixed stitches, crochet a stick into the same stitch as the first round stitch. So you do not start in the first ribbed round but in the last round of the crochet piece.

Tip: If you need to crochet your point around a 90 ° corner, insert two meshes of air between the last stitch on the first straight and the first stitch on the next straight.

3. Round arches

Prior knowledge:

  • chain stitches
  • Fixed stitches
  • rod

The small semicircles are a classic among the borders. They are very easy to do and loosen up any boring edge in an instant.

At the beginning fix the thread with a chain stitch right next to the corner or wherever it makes sense to you. Crochet a tight stitch in the same stitch. There are five sticks in the next but one stitch. So you skip a stitch and sting for five sticks one after another always in the same stitch. Then skip a stitch again. Crochet a tight loop in the next stitch. Already the bow is finished.

It continues with five sticks in the next but one stitch. The scheme remains the same for the entire round: five sticks, one settee, five sticks, one settee, ...

4th cathedral

Prior knowledge:

  • chain stitches
  • strong stitches
  • rod
  • stitches

This pattern is very similar to the round arches. But the semicircle is interrupted by a jersey, which forms a pretty little tip. Thus, the cathedral is a bit more demanding than the round arches.

They start preferably at the beginning of a straight line. There you attach the thread with a chain stitch. There are three sticks in the next but one stitch. Now comes the jersey. Crochet three meshes. Make a small circle by crocheting a warp stitch into the first loop of air. Next, crochet three more chopsticks into the same stitch as the previous ones. Take a stitch and attach the pointed bow in the next stitch with a strong stitch.

The next pointed arch starts again with a tight stitch. The scheme of this border looks like this briefly: solid stitch, three sticks, pikot, three sticks, fixed stitch.

5. triangles

Prior knowledge:

  • chain stitches
  • strong stitches
  • half sticks
  • rod
  • stitches

In contrast to the previous variants, this pattern creates straight edges and sharp corners. It is ideal to once internalize all the basic crochet stitches. Besides, it looks adorable!

Start with a chain stitch to fix the thread. Crochet a tight stitch in the same stitch. This is followed by half a stick and a whole stick in the next two stitches.

The top of the triangle you form from a jersey. Crochet three pieces of air to the stick. Finish the jersey with a slit stitch in the first of the three stitches. Now it goes on with a chopsticks, half a stick and a tight loop. The first triangle is ready.

The following triangles start immediately with half a stick. They all end with a tight stitch.

6. waves

Prior knowledge:

  • chain stitches
  • stitches
  • rod

The waves are probably the most spectacular of our seven patterns for braids. They take a little longer to crochet, look very playful and are a real eye-catcher with 3-D effect.

You start with a four-mesh chain at the beginning of your edge. Crochet one stick each in the next three stitches. The last stick is followed by an air chain with three chain stitches. Now apply your crochet work so you look at the back. Fix the chain with a warp stitch in the fourth loop from the beginning. After a spiral air mesh, turn your crochet piece back to the front. Now work seven sticks in the chain of airmesh. For this, do not pierce the individual air meshes, but pull the thread under the air meshes through the large gap. After the seventh stick, crochet a chopstick into the next stitch.

The first wave is ready and you have already started with the second one. Crochet two more sticks into the next two stitches. Now comes again an air chain with three air meshes. Apply your work. From now on you always attach this chain of mesh with a chain stitch in the rear pillar of the previous wave.

Another air mesh follows and you turn your work back to the front. A total of seven chopsticks are crocheted in the chain. Then it goes on with the three sticks in the next three stitches.

The easiest way to get around the corner is to crochet four sticks in the corner. The first stick completes the last wave of one side. The fourth stick is already the beginning of the first wave on the next page.

7. Wide tip

Prior knowledge:

  • chain stitches
  • Fixed stitches
  • stitches
  • rod

This edging is the only one here that is crocheted in three rounds. Therefore, it is also relatively wide. This is especially good on large textiles. For example, this lace is a beautiful completion for a sweater or a vest.

The first round consists only of fixed stitches. To do this, start in a corner with a chain stitch and crochet tight stitches all around. Two air meshes help you to get around the corner.

This is followed by a round in the V pattern. For the first V, crochet four loops of air into the first fixed stitch. Make another stick in the same stitch. Take a stitch and crochet in the next but one stitch the next chopsticks. This is followed by an air mesh and another stick in the same stitch. Crochet in this pattern a whole round: chopsticks, air mesh, chopsticks in the same mesh, chopsticks in the next but one stitch, air mesh, ...

In the corner two Vs come in the two air meshes. Between the two Vs you crochet two air meshes.

The third and final round sets each V still a jersey. After closing the second round with a slit stitch, crochet a tight loop into the top airlock from the start of the second round. It follows a solid mesh in the bridge above the V. Do not stab into the air mesh, but directly into the large hole of the Vs. Put the jersey on this tight knit. This means that you crochet three loops of air and close them with a slit stitch in the first loop of the air.

Crochet a single stitch in the next two stitches. Then you are in the middle of the next Vs. Make a tight loop with a pikot on it again.

The third round is now once again all around. In the corners you crochet in the two air meshes of the preliminary round each a fixed stitch, two air meshes and a solid mesh. Finish the round with a slit stitch in the first loop.
