About Me

My photo
IMAGINATION IS THE EYE OF THE SOUL Joseph Joubert. I am a mother of four...I still remember the smile that refused to go away for weeks after our daughters birth. To have a little girl appear after three sons seemed such a miracle. I have always enjoyed My Doll World, sharing it with Lara when she was little. Today I design knitted outfits for miniature dolls and enjoy every minute of it. The fact that the outfits are removable is what makes it so special for me. Using ever finer threads has opened so many MINIATURE DESIGN opportunities.

Crochet Stitches used for Edging

 The following videos show the stitches used.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqhaQQajt0U   single crochet stitch   (no wraps as you start) 1 chain extra does not count as first stitch
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1txJLRPfuE  double crochet stitch (one wrap as you start)
3 chain extra to start - this replaces the first double crochet stitch

4 chain extra to start - this replaces the first triple crochet stitch

Round 1
Using Maize thread (Colour 7-6054) make a round of sc (single crochet) completing the round with a slip stitch.
Round 2 
Continue with yellow thread make a slip stitch into the next sc, 5ch, 1dc into the same sc
*Miss 1 sc, into the next sc 1dc, 2ch, 1dc, rep from * till end of round join round with a slip stitch. Break off yellow thread
Round 3
Join in coral thread (Colour  7-2004) into a 2ch space Join in the tread a little further along as you don’t want to sew in all the start up and end threads of the different colours at the same spot. 6ch (counts as first triple crochet and 2 ch)

Into next 2ch space [1trp crochet, 2ch] three times, 1 trip crochet. Continue around the quilt. Break off thread

Round 5
Join in darker green thread  (colour 7-5001)  Into each 4ch space make 2sc, 4ch, 2sc continue around the quilt. If you have any questions please ask, as then I will know where I am going wrong in my explanation!!!!!
