Make your shelves prettier and add a decorative touch with this free crochet edging pattern by Sarah Shrimpton. It’s great for hiding chipped edges and grubby fingerprints! These edges are crocheted in rows to the length you desire. Crochet edging doesn’t just have to be used for shelves. You could stitch them onto anything that needs a bit of prettifying.
We’re sharing the pattern for the pink crochet edging. This and the patterns for the orange and yellow edging can be found in Sarah’s amazing book, Beginner’s Guide to Crochet.
