Creating a two-color, very easy crochet edge or border can add a pop of color and interest to your crochet projects. Here’s a simple two-color crochet edge pattern that you can use on various projects like blankets, scarves, or dishcloths. This pattern uses single crochet stitches for simplicity:
- Crochet hook (appropriate size for your yarn)
- Two different colors of yarn
- Start with your first color yarn, leaving a tail of a few inches to weave in later.
- Join the first color yarn at any point along the edge of your project.
- Chain 1 to secure the yarn.
- Work a single crochet stitch into the same stitch or space where you joined the yarn.
- Continue to work single crochet stitches evenly along the edge, making sure to space them evenly and working over any tails to secure them. You can work one single crochet per row or space along the edge.
- When you reach a corner, you can work 3 single crochet stitches in the same corner space to create a rounded edge.
- Once you’ve worked the single crochet edge in your first color around the entire project, cut the yarn, leaving another tail for weaving in.
-join your second color yarn at any point along the edge.
- Chain 1 with the second color to secure it.
- Work single crochet stitches evenly along the edge, making sure to space them evenly.
- When you reach a corner, you can again work 3 single crochet stitches in the same corner space.
- After working the second color around the entire project, cut the yarn, leaving a tail to weave in.
- Weave in all the yarn tails along the edge to secure them.
