If your napkins don’t already have stitching around them that you can crochet into, you will want to use a needle and thread to work a blanket stitch around them. If you are not familiar with blanket stitch, you can follow my How To Do a Blanket Stitch tutorial here.
If you prefer, an alternate option would be to use a piercing crochet hook to edge the blanket as I showed here for adding edgings to fleece blankets. Work an odd number of blanket stitches along each edge of your napkin that you would like to crochet.
Picot: Chain 3, slip stitch into third chain from hook.
Edging: Pull up a loop in first blanket stitch. Ch 3 (counts as dc), work [1 dc, picot, 2 dc] in same st, skip next st, *work [2 dc, picot, 2 dc] in next st, skip next st, repeat from * across ending with [2 dc, picot, 2 dc] in last stitch. Repeat on each napkin edge if desired.
