Crochet Borders – Top 5 Free Patterns

 

Crochet Edging - Top 5 Free Patterns

So, you just finished your crochet project and want to give it a finished look? Crochet borders will surely help you with this! There are thousands of crochet edgings that you can find on the Internet, but in this post I’ve collected the most popular and easy crochet borders.

I often use them in my works such as: a leaf tunic – crochet edging #5, a granny square halter top, crochet shorts and casual crochet top (without picots)- crochet border #1, etc.

You can also adapt them for working in the round – you’ll need to join the beginning and the end of the round with a slip stitch. Unfortunately I don’t know the names of these borders. If somebody know them feel free to help me out here and share in comments! :)
