This crochet blanket edging was recently used in the Here Comes Treble Blanket Collaboration hosted right here on SMJ.

This blanket is a fun collaboration between seven designers. It consists of 20 free squares with textured designs using front post treble stitches. Those squares are joined together and the blanket is finished off with an equally textured treble front post edging which you will find in this post.

Square Joining Instructions for the Here Comes Treble Blanket:

If you are looking for the edging instructions only, you will find them a little further below.

Slip Stitch Join: (Or use your favorite join method.)

I used this video tutorial by Bella Coco as a guide when joining my squares.

Notes:

  • Avoid working your slip stitch join too tightly.
  • Block your squares before joining.
  • Steam block entire blanket. It will help your squares lay flat.

It helps to have the layout of the squares planned out. I laid mine out on my dining room table then switched them around until I had them how I wanted.

To do the slip stitch join, I used a color different than all the colors used in the squares so it would stand out better.

You will lay out two rows of 5 squares, slip stitch them together along the entire length. You can use back loops of each square or the front loop on one square and back loops on the other square. Fasten off at the end. Place the next set of 5 squares and do the same. Then the last set of squares. *Make sure the yarn always stays under the squares.*

Now, you will turn the blanket and slip stitch the squares together across the entire width of each section. Again, making sure yarn is under the squares.

This Blanket Edging Feature in Crochet Border & Edges Hop by Sweet Potato 3

Sweet Potato 3 is hosting a blog hop featuring different borders and edges for crochet blankets. My edging is featured on May 15. If you would like to see all the other border and edging featured, click the button below.

Crochet Blanket Edging Instructions:

This edging can work on all types of blankets.

In retrospect, I wished I had done a single crochet around the Here Comes Treble Blanket in the same color I used for joining the squares. So, if you are making a blanket using squares, you may want to do this. Then start the border below.

Rnd 1: With Color A, join in any non-corner st. Ch 1, hdc in each st around, with (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in each corner, sl st to beginning st. Fasten off.

Rnd 2: With Color B, join in any non-corner st. Ch 1, hdc in each st around, with (hdc, ch 1, hdc) in each ch 1-sp corner. sl st to beginning st. Fasten off.

Rnd 3: With Color C, join in any non-corner st. Ch 1, dc in each st around with (dc, ch 1, dc) in each ch 1-sp corner, sl st to beginning st. Do not fasten off. Continue with next rnd.

Rnd 4: Rep row 3 Fasten off Color C  at end of row 4.

Rnd 5:TrFP will be worked 2 rows below (Rnd 3) With Color D, join in the stitch before the (dc, ch 1, dc) of a corner, ch 1, dc same st, TrFP around the first dc of the corner 2 rows below, (dc, ch 1, dc) in corner ch 1-sp, TrFP next around 2nd dc of the corner from two rows below, dc next, *TrFP next, dc next; rep from * to next corner, TrFP around first dc of the corner, (dc, ch 1, dc) in corner ch 1-sp, TrFP around 2nd dc of corner, dc next, *TrFP next, dc next; rep from * to next corner; continue this repeat around entire blanket, join with sl st in beginning st. Do not fasten off. Continue with next rnd.

Rnd 6: ch 1, sc in first dc, hdc in the unworked st behind the TrFP, continue to work a sc in each dc, a hdc in each unworked st behind the TrFP, and (sc, ch1, sc) in each corner ch 1-sp around entire blanket, sl st in beginning st. Fasten off. Weave in ends. See photo below for hdc placement.

If your blanket seems to be bunching up some after you’ve finished the border, it would be a good idea to steam block the blanket to loosen it up to lay flat. I put towels on my dining room table, laid the blanket on top, put more towels over the top of the blanket, and ironed the entire blanket using the steam function.
