Get ready to crochet on the edge. Clothing designer, teacher, and author Cal Patch shows you how adding crochet edgings to your garments can add so much color, texture and interest. Cal covers a few ways to work crochet edgings into existing garments like the necklines of shirts and dresses. You'll warm up with a few simple edgings in single crochet and double crochet stitches and then move on to a few fancier edgings with multiple tiers. You'll also learn how to prepare a neckline before adding crocheted embellishments. These are all fabulous techniques for items you find in the thrift shop, clothing you've made, or something old in your closet that needs a fresh beginning.

  • Steel crochet hooks and smaller crochet hooks
  • Fingering-weight yarn or crochet thread
  • Small tapestry needle
  • Large sewing needle
  • Fabric scraps for practicing stitches

  • Scissors
Learn how to:
  • Add a variety of crocheted edgings to any garment

Great inspiration and explained thoroughly. It may be the teachers normal personality or way she expresses herself but she was flat and left me with the idea she was unwell or tired. She lacked enthusiasm. I hate to say that. Her material is good but the delivery was disappointing. She was thorough and stayed at a good pace.
