How to Add a Picot Border to your Blanket

How to Add a Picot Border to a Crochet Blanket by Little Monkeys Designs

I love simple blanket crochet patterns, but sometimes a blanket just calls for a little something extra. A pretty border stitch can often take a blanket from pretty to gorgeous!!

In designing this baby blanket, I have created two crochet tutorial videos for you to teach you how to add a border to any blanket you crochet.

Addie's Baby Blanket is crocheted with the Tunisian Honeycomb stitch. Then a pretty picot border stitch was added.

The picot border stitch added a delicate touch to this already beautiful baby blanket.

Watch this video to learn the skill of adding a basic border stitch to a blanket of any size:

Once you have a basic border around the edge of your blanket, you can add an additional decorative stitch if you want. On Addie's Baby Blanket, I added a Picot stitch to the border of the blanket to give it a fancy finish.
