I just had a friend call to say she would be in town in a couple of days and to ask if we could get together. Why, of course we could. I mean who turns down the opportunity to visit with a treasured friend? Not me. And I will come bearing a gift no less!!

Materials needed

Knowing that her favorite color is purple and armed with the knowledge that I couldn’t find a fleece blanket in the aforementioned hue, I ran to the fabric store and bought some nice weight fleece with matching yarn.

I trimmed the edges and rounded the corners and proceeded to crochet an edging.

Rounded edge

Using a small steel hook (size 3) I “punched” a hole and attached the yarn with a simple knot.

Plunge hook deep

Make sure to plunge the hook in a good ways to make a big enough space in which to pull the yarn through.

view of back

Holding the tail to the back I started finishing the edges with single crochet stitches.

Spacing is about 1/4 inch down from the top edge and 1/4 inch from the last stitch.  Make sure to crochet loosely or the edge will pucker.


Crochet around to the beginning stitch and join with a slip stitch. Fasten off and weave in ends. If you want more of an edging, pick a favorite edging pattern and use this single crochet edge as a foundation.
