More Crochet Edgings for Handkerchiefs

A couple weeks ago, I made a post about how I added blue lacy trim to a handkerchief (you can see it here).
I thank you for your sweet comments and compliments on my work.

Today I want to share two more handkerchiefs with added crochet edgings. Again, I experimented and came up with the simple patterns myself.

There are only four rounds of crochet in each pattern. First, using a thin and sharp hook, I made a round of single crochets directly on the trim of the handkerchief. Then it was easy to add three more rounds of double crochets and chains.

I used DMC #8 pearl cotton.

  7. Nice! I found your post through the Fibers on Friday link party. :)
    Can you buy sharp hooks at a regular crafting store? Was there any finishing on the edges before you started your own handkerchief trim?

  8. Hello and thank you
    I have just found you via a link on Sewritzytitzy.blogspot and I am so glad I did. Your work is beautiful.
    I love to crochet lace and flowers myself and have created a few patterns of my own also. I just haven't gotten to recording the patterns yet...that must go on my to do list.
    May I have your permission to link to your tutorials/patterns on my blog please as although my blog is mainly cardmaking I have followers who, like me, love to crochet edgings and flowers to use on our cards.
    You can email me at or just leave a comment on the blog-
    I look forward to following your lovely work and those you link with too. Keep up the fabulous work. Hugs Linda (UK)
