Rope Edging Crochet Border
Do you ever debate over adding a crochet border to your afghan projects? Sometimes you just need a simple single crochet around it to tidy it up. Sometimes, a nice lace pattern adds just the right touch. Borders can be simple and yet add enough to the project that you don't want to go without them.
When working textured crochet designs, I always add a border but often struggle when deciding which style to choose. I don't want the the border to take away from the texture, I want it to compliment it.
The Reversible Textured Chevron Afghan is a perfect example. A lace border just wouldn't look right and I wanted more than just a simple single crochet around the edge. I needed something that would flow with all the post stitches and I came up with the Rope Edging. This edging is worked with only the Front Post double crochet stitch but the way you insert your hook around the stitches makes all the difference!
The Reversible Textured Chevron Afghan crochet pattern includes a photo tutorial of the stitching but I thought it would be nice to create a video to help also.
