Stitchopedia Pattern Video Tutorial

This crochet hand towel border will teach you how to add a sweet crochet trim around a hand towel. The crochet pattern for the trim is part of the tutorial.

Products for this design were provided by WeCrochet, Cricut, and Artesprix. All opinions are my own.

First, you’ll need to make a backstitch base around the edge of the towel. You can find the tutorial for that HERE. Then follow along with this tutorial to crochet through those stitches and create your border. You can use this technique on nearly any fabric item, such as blankets, hems of various clothing items, and more.
