Learning just a couple of crochet stitches allows you to add beautiful, decorative crochet edgings to your knitting. In this video, Corrina Ferguson demonstrates how to work an easy edging that’s created with chain stitches, single crochet stitches, and double crochet stitches.

Corrina begins working single crochet around her knitted swatch. When binding off the swatch, there was 1 stitch left on the knitting needle. She placed this stitch onto the crochet hook to begin the round of single crochet. The single crochet is worked as follows:

  • Insert hook under two strands of yarn to work into stitch.
  • Yarn over and pull through a loop onto the hook (2 loops on hook).
  • Yarn over and pull yarn through both loops on hook (1 loop remains on hook).

The single crochet is worked all the way around. When working the corners, 3 single crochet stitches are worked into the corner. This allows Corrina to continue working along the next side of the piece and the corner will remain flat and not curl up.

Once the single crochet is complete, Corrina begins the decorative edging. The edging is worked as follows:

Single crochet, chain 1, skip next stitch, 3 double crochet stitches into next stitch, chain 1, skip next stitch.

These steps are repeated to create the edging. The double crochet stitches are worked as follows:

  • Yarn over and insert hook under two strands of yarn to work into stitch.
  • Yarn over and pull through a loop onto the hook (3 loops on hook).
  • Yarn over and pull through two loops on hook (2 loops remain on hook).
  • Yarn over and pull through two loops on hook (1 loop remains on hook).
