How to add a ruffled edge to your granny squares

Flouncy but fun!!

Remembering that I am a child of the 80’s, I lived for flouncy sleeves and ruffled bedspreads – it’s no wonder that this edging appeals to me! 

The ruffle is created using a technique called hyperbolic crochet; where you add lots of stitches in to each stitch of the project. These extra stitch in close proximity to one another creates the ruffles.

It’s worth noting that this style of border is not ideal for those projects your want to lay flat on a surface, the ruffled border is best suited to blankets, washcloths or crochet garments.
