I was making a baby afghan for a baby shower, and thought it was the perfect opportunity to give it a whirl!
I made the body of the baby-ghan with a basic V-Stich stitch, then trimmed in single crochet. Debi’s pretty flower stitch was added as the border.
While it was my first attempt, I think it came out pretty well.
The no pattern required V-Stitch worked up quickly as one would anticipate when beginning, but I was impressed with how the flower pattern worked up.
The designer has the pattern both as a tutorial on YouTube, as well as in written form on her blog. After watching the video, I printed out the pattern, and began. It worked up more quickly than I thought, I believe in part to the clarity of the video instruction and written pattern. After a few flowers, I was breezing through the border, and I was finished before I thought I’d be (I tend to be a pokey crocheter).
If you’re looking for something new and unique for a baby shower or upcoming holiday gift, I highly recommend swinging by Dearest Debi’s website or her YouTube page to check out her Crochet Flower Edging design
disclaimer: I don’t own the pattern – Dearest Debi does 🙂 I am linking to her page because I feel others may find the design as fun and pretty as I do ~ I’m sharing my experience with using her pattern, and showing the results I had with it via a picture of the babyghan I made with a basic no-pattern-needed v-stitch, and Dearest Debi’s border.
