On the border – a round up of my favourite crochet borders

13 Feb

With 3 babies due to 3 lovely ladies in my life this April my life has revolved around baby blankets the last few months. I have finished my second blanket this week (post to follow once I can get some photos) and have started on the final blanket, pink hexies for a little bundle of pink. My fingers are stiff and my eyes sore from the amount of googling I have done to find the perfect inspiration for these blankets. I have come across some amazing patterns and ideas and I would like to share some of my faves with you.

1. Pom Pom edging from Once upon a Pink Moon this is by far my favourite border for a baby blanket. It is tactile, fun and whimsical. I used this in my citrus bobble blanket and I can definitely see myself using it over and over again.

2. Catherderal edge from Halfknits charity knitting. This is such a beautiful border. The simple addition of the picot turns a regular scallop style edge into something really special.

3. Link stitch with tassles from Poppalina. This edge is just amazing. here it was used on a baby blanket, but I think it would be just fabolous on a floor rug with those huge tassles.

4. I seem to be drawn to bobbles, that must be why I find this cherry berry bobble border by Hooked on Needles just so adorable

5. Rounding out my top 5 is this simple yet totally devine little border from Hooks and Yarns I think this is works so well with the granny to jazz her up a bit.

I hope you have enjoyed these gorgeous borders as much as I have and I hope they provide you with some inspiration for your next project.

P.S They all have free patterns!
