Afghan \ blanket edging

This is a baby blanket, I was just winging the edging....and it came out so pretty. I am in love with this.

Thought I should share the pattern, so here it goes. It’s very easy !

It uses cross over double crochet.

Cross-Over double crochet: Skip one stitch, dc in the next stitch and then dc in the skipped stitch. It creates a little cross and is a very full stitch.

Picot: Chain 3, sl st in the 3rd chain.

Rnd 1: SC in every stitch

Rnd 2:Chain 3, *cross-over DC, DC, repeat from * all around. Sl st in the 3rd ch of beginning chain.

Rnd 3: SC in every stitch

Rnd 4: Chain 4, DC in the same st. skip 2, * V stitch (dc, chain 1, dc) all in one stitch. skip 2*....repeat from * to *

Rnd 5: V in V....dc , ch 1, dc in the chain 1 space of last row's V. Repeat all around.

Rnd 6: sc in the space between Vs, (sc, picot, sc) all in chain 1 sp, repeat all around.

All done.

I have also tried making a graph for this pattern, if that’s more convenient for you.

I am not very experienced at writing patterns so please bear with me. And if you find any mistake or have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
