Bubbly crochet edging

Today as promised the edging of the lappity lap blanket.
I have given it the name bubbly edging.
It`s from a Japanese craft book;  Let`s play with color.
I bought it at an Etsy shop;

Be warned, I`ve spend many hours there
looking at al the lovely craft books
before I decided which books I would order.
The yarn is from Yvestown
and there is a sale until the 5th of july.
So hoppity hop to both shops for the book and the yarn.

1. 8 ch (chain)

1. 8 Losse

2. Go 3 stitches back and make a tr/dc (treble UK, double crochet US).
Don`t finish the tr/dc leave one loop on the hook, ( there are 2 loops on your hook).

2. Ga 3 steken terug en maak in de 3e steek een stokje.
Maak het stokje niet af maar laat 1 lus op de haak (je hebt nu 2 lussen op je haak).

3. Repeat until you have 4 loops on your hook.
(3 tr/dc total).

3. Herhaal tot je 4 lussen op je haak hebt.
(3 stokjes in totaal).

Pull the yarn through the 4 loops.

Haal het garen door de 4 lussen.

4. 4 ch, repeat from 2 but go back 4 stiches.

4. 4 losse, herhaal vanaf 2 maar ga nu 4 steken terug.

5. Make a bubbly ball by joining the two clusters together.

5. Maak een bolletje door de 2 delen samen te haken met een halve vaste.

6. 5 ch, close with a slip stitch. 

6. 5 Losse, sluit met een halve vaste.

Good luck and have fun.

  7. Hi,

    first of all, what a great edging! I just have one question (as a beginner in crochet); how did you make the first row, the one actually attached to the blanket? And how did you attach it to the blanket?

    Tnx for replay
