Crochet Tutorial: Leaf Edging

The Leaf Stitch Border For Blankets is an easy, beginner-friendly, edging border that looks great on blankets with both a simple design and a textured pattern.

Today I will show you how to crochet the Leaf Stitch Edging with a step-by-step photo tutorial.

I recommend you crochet a base row on your edge before starting the border. Use any plain stitch for your base row, I always make a single crochet row around my blankets before crocheting any border.

Techniques used in this stitch (British term / American term):

Chain stitch – ch

Slip stitch – sl.st

Double crochet / Single crochet – dc/sc

Treble / Double crochet – tr / dc

Half tr/ half dc - h.tr/h.dc

Double tr / treble – d.tr / tr

Picot of 3ch – picot

Stitch – st
