Crocheted Border -- Small and Big Scallops Video Tutorial

The Northeast US Oddball Baby Blanket on-line charity knitting group in which I have begun to participate is going great guns on so many beautiful baby blankets. Pictures of blankets in progress can be seen by clicking HERE, and pictures of completed blankets can be seen by clicking HERE.

The first blanket I worked on was the all-red Jersey Devil blanket which I have already shown you. At the end of that post, I promised videos showing how to do the border that I made up for that blanket. I have already shown you how to work a single crochet border around a knitted piece. But I also promised a video on how to work the decorative border I used for that blanket.

Finally here it is...

The written pattern can be found in the original post on the Jersey Devil blanket if you would like to give it a try.

I am now in the process of knitting the last section of the Forest Greens baby blanket and then I will crochet the border on that one too before mailing it to the person who will deliver it along with other completed blankets to the hospital to be given to the babies.

If you are looking for a nice group of people to get to know, and a quick project to do every once in a while, check out the Knittinghelp.com Charity Knitting forum and sign up for a section of an oddball blanket in your part of the country. It will definitely put a smile on your face!

Happy Stitching!
