How to Crochet: Block EdgingBy Robin Beers – 30 Comments
|This pretty edging is called block edging because the stitches look like little blocks. Use this as a decorative edge on doilies or cuffs or even crocheted jewelry. It is pretty simple once you get the hang of it. It uses the Triple crochet (tr), also known as treble crochet. For a refresher on this stitch, see How to Crochet: Treble Crochet|
Start with a row of single crochet. In this tutorial, I am using crochet thread size 3 with a D crochet hook.
Note: If you are left handed, just put your mouse over the photo for a left-handed view.
Skip first 3 stitches. Make a tr (triple crochet) in the next stitch.
Make 4 triple crochet (tr) around stem of previous triple crochet (tr).
Now you have a total of 5 triple crochet made.
Your first block is now complete. Skip 3 stitches and repeat.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
