make 6 chain then single crochet into the same stitch.

* make a single crochet into the next stitch, make 6 chain. Single crochet into the same stich**

Repeat from * to **

2 Colour Chain Edging

This one is neat!

Ok so it's a little frustrating having to keep changing colour as you work, but well worth the effort for the results.


After making a straight edged foundation row in colour A (yellow) make one chain and then turn.

Make 1 single crochet (UK double crochet) into the first stitch, then make 4 chain. Remove hook from loop.

With colour B join into second stitch by pulling a loop of B through the stitch and then make 5 chain. Remove hook from loop.

Insert hook back into A loop. Bring chain A in front of chain B. Make one single crochet into next stitch. Make 4 chain. Remove hook from loop.

Insert hook into B loop. Bring chain B in front of chain A and make one single crochet into next stitch. Make 4 chain.

Continue in this manner all along your edge.

Finish by making one single crochet with A then one single crochet with B and then fasten off.

Bobble Edging

* Make 4 double crochet (UK treble) together into the next stitch. (Just like you would if you are decreasing stitches, but on this occasion work them all into the same stitch)

Repeat from * to ** to end, finishing with 1 half double crochet into last stitch
