Granny Square Afghan Crochet Edging Pattern

I am finishing up my granny square scrapghan and am loving how it came out! I decided on a very simple crochet edging and of course want to share the pattern with you in case you want to try it too. If you haven’t tried making your own scrapghan yet, check out my post here for the free granny square pattern to get you started.

 

Granny Square Afghan Crochet Edging Pattern

The best part about this granny crochet edging is how simple it is and how perfectly it fits with your granny design!

Here’s how to do it … click here if you need to reference Crochet Abbreviations or here to reference Crochet Stitch Symbols.

After joining your squares (you can find my tutorial on joining here), join your first edging color in the first chain space from Round 4 of one of your squares.

Row 1: Ch 3 (counts as dc), work 2 dc in same ch-sp, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-sp, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-sp, ch 1, when you reach the corners of where the squares join, *work 1 dc in first squares corner, 1 dc in space where squares were joined, 1 dc in corner of next square, continue working 3 dc, ch 1 across next square, rep from * across side to end, work [2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc] in corner space, repeat around for each side and corner, join and fasten off CA.

Row 2: Join CB in any ch-1 sp along side, ch 3 (counts as dc), work 2 dc in same ch-sp, ch 1, *3 dc in next ch-sp, ch 1, rep from * to corner, work [2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc] in corner space, repeat around for each side and corner, join and fasten off CB.

Row 3: Join CA in any ch-1 sp along side, ch 3 (counts as dc), work 2 dc in same ch-sp, ch 1, *3 dc in next ch-sp, ch 1, rep from * to corner, work [2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc] in corner space, repeat around for each side and corner, join but do not fasten off.

Round 4: Ch 1 (does not count as stitch), *work 1 sc in each st and ch-1 sp to corner, work 4 sc in corner ch-3 sp, rep from * around, fasten off and weave in ends.

    In the photo it looks like you also did a row of single crochet for the last row.

      Good catch! You are correct … I did work a round of single crochet for the last round. I must have accidentally left that last round out. Thanks for letting me know!
