Free Pattern Fortnightly: Seven crochet edgings

Well, the weeks got away from me a little there. Sorry about that! Let's get back on track shall we?

This week's free pattern is for seven crocheted edging designs, by Coats. Although written for lighter weight crochet cotton, these could be worked in pretty much any weight with an appropriate sized hook. As always, right click > View Image (or open in new tab) to view full size.

Crochet trims look lovely worked in bright colours for a more modern feel. Add them to bed linen, towels, clothing, or anything else you fancy! There's plenty of inspiration on Pinterest to get the ideas flowing:

You can either make up the trim separately and sew it on, or work it directly onto your fabric edge. Either work a line of blanket stitch along the edge with a needle first, and use this as your base, or make your crochet chain, making a slip stitch through the fabric every few chains.
