After a brief hiatus, winter is back and it’s time for blankets. However, one of the ways blanket projects go awry is that their edges don’t do justice to the rest of the blanket. Here are two patterns that show you how you may give an edge befitting your blanket projects. A link to the free pattern is at the end of the post.
Zig-zag Blanket Border Free Crochet Pattern
The first is a lovely blanket in main hues with a zig-zag inlay. The zigzag is bordered by bands of colors and together forms a dense border that really finishes off the blanket and gives it a crisp edge. This would be great for a blanket that is used as a throw on a bed or couch.

Meet Me On The Corner Edging Free Crochet Pattern
Some blankets may need a more airy border, because they themselves are loosely stitched. In those cases, you should definitely consider the Meet Me on the Corner edge, a lacy border that makes great use of voids to define its texture. A link to a free pattern is at the end of the post.
