I always wonder what kind of different, unique stitches that I can use for the border of my blankets. And, I think that I’ve found a new favorite, the puff edge stitch!
It forms nice, clean edges that can give a simpler stitched blanket a lot of class.
I recently just used this border to finish off my ‘Watermelon Blanket‘
For this blanket I actually used the moss stitch in a square, of which you can find that tutorial HERE
It’s a great mindless stitch that is wonderful to do while watching tv or when you don’t want to concentrate real hard to keep track of where you are at. And, it creates a nice, non-holey blanket without lots of gaps.
Anyway, I’ll quit jabbering and get on to the point of this post 😜
Puff Edge Stitch
Start by pulling up a loop anywhere around the edge of your blanket and work an HDC (half double crochet) in that stitch. *Skip a stitch, Hdc, then, working around the post of the HDC, HDC3TOG.*
To HDC3TOG: yarn over, pull up a loop,(3 loops on hook) YO again, pull up a loop (5 loops on hook) YO again, pull up a loop (7 loops on hook) YO and pull through all 7 loops on your hook
Continue repeating * to * around your work. When you reach a corner, simply work 2 puff edge stitches in the corner placing a chain stitch between the 2 puff edge stitches.
Or if you’d rather watch my video tutorial!
