Triangle crochet edging is a little pattern I came up with for edging blankets and… well, anything you want to put an edge on! It’s used in the Go Team Colors Baby Blanket, and in the Go Team Colors Reversible Baby Hat (due out this Friday, I’ll update with a link then).
The written pattern for the triangle crochet edging, for edgings divisible by 4:
Ch 1 and sc in the 1st st. *Skip 2 sts, dc 2 in the next st. Ch 1, and work 2 sc around the post of the 2nd dc just made, working down the post towards the base. Sc in the next st. Repeat from * around, ending the last repeat with a sl st or seamless join in the first sc of the round. Break yarn and weave in ends.
Here’s a video demonstration:
The triangle crochet edging is a great alternative to lacier edgings, making it a perfect gender neutral choice. It’s bold and geometric and because of how it’s made it goes around corners like a dream, with no need to add a stitch to fit. In the video I outlined how to fit it on edges with stitch counts divisible by 4 and 5, but you could do it on edges divisible by 3 as well, just skip one st instead of 2. It’s simple and easy as can be, so have fun with it! I can’t wait to see what you all make with it!
