For a while now I’ve been thinking about making myself a new crochet blanket. A lot of thinking and pondering goes into this. It’s been months now. Will I go for squares again? Will I make it easy for myself and make a ripple stitch blanket? Or do I challenge myself with a new pattern? The edge to pick for that, still imaginary, blanket is another big question mark. I think an edge can really make or break a crochet blanket. So I’ve been looking for some inspiration and came across some wonderful crochet edges for blankets.

10 pretty crochet edges for crochet blankets
Lacy crochet border
Sandra Paul designed this simple, but very pretty lacy crochet border for Black Sheep Wools. To me, it really shows that less is more. I think a crochet edge that’s too complicated can distract from the beauty of the crochet blanket.
Picot crochet edge
It’s just as nice when a crochet edge looks particularly tricky but is actually really easy. Picots are the way to go for this. They are easy peasy and really give a pretty finish to a crochet blanket. I found a beauty over at Bella Coco and an easy version on a Russian website.
Pumpkin patch edging
I absolutely love the colour of pumpkin. I think it makes for wonderfully warm and winter crochet projects that need to have that winter-look. But burnt orange can also give a bit of a kick to projects with sweeter colours. I like using pumpkin orange with purples, pinks and greys. Fibre flux designed another beautiful crochet edge, the Pumpkin Patch Edging. It looks lovely after a row of just SC’s and creates the perfect edge for a warm winter blanket.
The crochet puff edge stitch by Daisy Farm Crafts isn’t just a very cool looking crochet edge for a blanket, it also gives you the opportunity to learn a very fun stitch. The stitch is fun and bouncy, yet a little soft. Perfect for a baby blanket.
Work of art edging
The blanket of Coco Rose Textiles made me gasp for air. It’s amazing. Even though it’s just a ‘simple’ granny square blanket, the bold colors and awesome edging make it a true work of art. For the edge she used the edge of All Shawl on Ravelry.
Crochet blanket edge
If you’d like to crochet an edge around a teatowel, bath towel or fleece blanket, this crochet blanket edge is just perfect. For crochet blanket this edge also works perfectly if you first crochet a row of SC’s or a round of granny clusters around your blanket.
Puff stitch flower edge
The puff stitch flower edge made me squeel with joy. Isn’t this a lovely crochet edge for a crochet blanket. I can just image finishing a baby blanket for a little girl with this stitch. It would give it just that bit extra.
Single colour crochet edge
If you’re toying with the idea to make a crochet blanket in one color I think this edge could be really beautiful for it. I found in on a Japanese website, but there is a graphic so you should be able to work it out.
Greenway Afghan crochet edge
This is an edge that makes me go: wow!! I think it would go perfect with a simple stripey blanket. Just crochet a round of DC’s around your blanket and then get started with this ripple edge. Donna Yacino was the clever lady that thought this up and explains how to make the boarder in her Ravelry message. Love love love.
MyPicot Bow Edge
MyPicot is your to-go website when you’re looking for fun and original stitches. And this Bow Edge is also made by MyPicot and although its way too sweet for me, I am sure some of you will absolutely love it. It’s a great edge for a present or baby girl’s blanket.
