Ruffled Edge Blanket Border – Pattern Description
The Ruffled Edge Blanket Border must be one of the easiest ways to decorate your blanket. If you are looking for a quick way to create some texture around your design, this is definitely the one to try.
Adjust the number of double crochets you make in each stitch for a more or less curly design. It all depends on the yarn you use and the result you want.
The Ruffled Edge Border is constructed with multiple double crochet stitches crocheted in each stitch around the edge, resulting in a curly and textured border.
It doesn’t require a special pattern for corners and that makes it a beginner-friendly pattern that can be adjusted to any project.
It works great for any kind of edge, from square and rectangle projects such as blankets and afghans, to triangle edges such as shawls or straight edges such as scarves. You can even crochet it on a round edge such as a dress.
I recommend you crochet a base row on your edge before starting the border. Use any plain stitch for your base row, I always make a single crochet row around my blankets before crocheting any border.
If you are making this border for a blanket, check out my base row tutorial for blankets with double crochet rows or base row tutorial for blankets with treble rows to give you an idea of how a base row is made based on the different types of stitches your blanket rows are made with.

Pattern written in US terms using Craft Yarn Council abbreviations.
No special stitches are used in the blanket border design.
- TIP: If you want a less curly border or you are using a thicker yarn, make 4dc in each stitch. If you want a fuller border or you are using thinner yarn, make 6dc in each stitch.
- the section between ** is the section that needs to be repeated
- this border is crocheted in the round without turning, each round is closed with an sl st
Step 1: Join in any stitch around the edge with a slip knot and ch3 (counts as a dc), 4dc in the same stitch.
Step 2: 5dc in the next stitch.
Step 3: Repeat Step 2 in each stitch around the edge, sl st in the top chain of ch3 you made at the beginning and fasten off.
Shaping Up The Border: The ruffles will curl unevenly and you might want to shape them up with your fingers to get an even curl.
Use your thumb to roll the border around and create equal-length ruffles around the border.
