Crocheting adds that special touch to any project, and it’s one of my favorite ways to personalize my creations. Whether you’re a seasoned crocheter or a beginner looking to try something new, this tutorial is perfect for you.
Adding a crochet edge to your hand-woven scarf has numerous benefits. Not only does it enhance the overall look of your scarf, but it also adds a decorative element that sets it apart from store-bought ones. Plus, by neatly finishing the edge with crochet, you ensure that your scarf stays intact and lasts longer.
You will need:
- A crochet hook to suit the yarn you will use for the edging
- The yarn for the edging
- A scarf
- Scissors and a tapestry needle
Crochet creates a dense fabric. When weaving with heavier yarns, to avoid the edge being too heavy choose a lighter yarn than was used in the weaving
Slip stitch into the side of the scarf. Place the slip stitch in the loop of the weft as it goes around the lat warp thread.
- Chain 3 ( or 2 for a rounder cluster) in the same spaceman two trebles (UK)
- Lay the cluster along the edge of the scarf. Slip stitch into the closest weft loop.
- Repeat step one and two until the edge is worked.
Cut yarn and finish, sewing in ends.
