When completing a crochet project, adding an edging or a crochet boarder and elevate the final look of your project. 

This advanced crochet boarder is worked in 3 rounds using 2 differently coloured yarns to create an interlocking edging that is simply eye catching. 

The Double Chain Arch edging featured on my Enchanted Arch Cushion pattern to highlight 2 of the 3 colours used in the pattern and it ties the whole design together.

This edging would look stunning around the boarder of a crochet blanket, and around the edge of cardigans and tops.

The pattern testers for the Enchanted Arch Cushion found that the 1st 2 rounds of the edging were really simple, and provided you follow the photo tutorial, the 3rd round is marginally challenge.

As the arches are interlocking, the 3rd round is worked through and around the arches created in round 2 – the location and positioning of your crochet is what creates the intertwined look of this edging.

Below are images of the pattern testers cushions which used the Double Chain Arch edging.

How to Crochet the Double Chain Arch Edging

Double Chain Arch Edging Stitch Multiple

The Double Chain Arch edging is worked in 3 rounds and requires a stitch multiple of 3.

When working this edging on to your project, the 1st round of the edging stitch pattern must be divisible by 3. For example, in the Enchanted Arch Cushion, the 1st round of edging has a stitch count of 42 on each edge of the cushion, including the corners to allow the edging to be added.
