Over the last few months I have been crocheting like woman possessed for an epic deadline for my new crochet book that will be on sale later this year (Psst! You can pre-order this here!), so I thought that it was about time I shared a crochet tutorial.

Crochet Scalloped Border Tutorial Made Peachy This Scalloped Border is just the thing to transform a simple make in to something really special in no time! I love to use to a a fancy finish to a super-sized granny square blanket – which can be made by working a granny square until it is super-sized or by working lots of granny squares then blocking and seaming them together to create a blanket – either way, this Crochet Scalloped Border is a fabulous finishing touch!
Crochet Scalloped Border Tutorial Made Peachy Once you’ve completed your granny square to your desired size, you can continue in the same yarn to create the border or you can fasten in a new colour to create a contrast.

As a side note, because I know someone is going to ask, the crochet hook used in this tutorial is from this beautiful collection of hooks in the Boye Artisan Crochet Tool set.
Artisan-Hooks-Main You can find out more about them in my Tried & Tested review – spoiler: they are as beautiful to work with as they are to look at!

I hope that you love this simple yet really striking scalloped crochet border as much as I do – let me know if you give it a try and be sure to share photos of your finished makes too!

    that border is lovely, I the scallops look so perfect! And holy smokes, those are some gorgeous crochet hooks. I so desperately want to learn to crochet, but I’m left handed (and hold the hook in my left hand,) so I’ve been a little discouraged in the past…..
