Crochet Trim For Your Knits
Whether it’s the neckline of a sweater or a border on an afghan, having a little know-how in crochet can make an impact on the look and feel of our knitted projects. Learning the single crochet (sc) trim is the perfect place to start because the results are easy and elegant every time. Step 1: Start by making a slip knot and placing it on the crochet hook. Begin with the right side of your piece facing. Step 2: With one loop on the hook, insert your hook through the knit edge. Step 3: From front to back and over the top of the hook, wrap the yarn around, letting the hook grab it. Step 4: Use the hook to pull that yarn back through to the front. You’ll notice you have two loops on your hook now. Step 5: Wrap your yarn around the hook again, just like in Step 3, over the top edge of your knitting (you aren’t inserting the hook this time). Step 6: Use the hook to pull that yarn back through BOTH of the loops that you had on the hook. Now you have one loop again. Move to the next “stitch” or placement in your knitting and repeat Steps 2–6 for a single crochet trim along the entire edge of your piece. Once you’ve mastered this crochet method, you are well on your way to learning fancier trims!
