One For The Boys

Here's a nice crocheted edging that isn't too lacy...perfect for a little boy's blankie!

One For The Boys Crocheted Edging

Materials: I used Caron Simply Soft (White) and a size H crochet hook, but any worsted weight yarn will work for this edging.

Foundation Row: Sc in a hole, ch 1, *sc in next hole, ch 1, repeat from * around, join with sl st to first sc. (For corners, sc, ch 1, sc, ch1, sc, ch 1 in each corner hole.)

Pattern Row: *Sl st in the "V" space, dc in the ch 1 space, repeat from * around, join.

(The "V" space is my "technical term" for the space above the single crochet done in each hole during the foundation row where the yarn forms a "V" on the blanket edge.)

Great boys blanket!!! Looks soft and warm, but "manly" at the same time ;-))

What a lovely fleece for a boy. I'm sure it will be so appreciated in these cold evenings. My not so little boy loves wrapping a fleece around him still.

Very nice edging. Thank you for including the directions! Also, I baked a batch of your Apple Squares today. Yum, yum! Thank you for sharing the recipe. They are a big hit at my house!
