How to Add Border to Fleece

For any size of fleece, even if you just wanted to crochet a simple border around fleece to hand off to a charity, it’s done pretty easily after the skip cutting has been completed.

If you haven’t seen the Skip Cutting Procedure, see the list of articles below to review. If matching your fleece to an existing project, that is discussed there as well.

The skip cut line is about 1″ from the edges. The tutorial will walk you through the process.

  1. Using 3.5 mm or F Hook and 4 ply worsted yarn like Caron Simply Soft.
  2. With the good side of the fleece facing you. Fold over the edge away from you and insert hook into the skip cut hole close to where the vertical and horizontal holes meet up.
  3. Pull slip knot through and sl st to fasten on. Ch 1, sc in same hole. Ch 1, *sc in next hold, ch 1. Repeat * across to corner. Sc in last hole on the same row, ch 2, rotate project 90 degrees and sc in next hole in the vertical direction for the next edge. Repeat concept around.
  4. At the end of the round, fasten off if you are satisfied. If attaching to another existing project, you will still fasten off and get your project ready to attach this to the existing project. See next video in series.
  5. Alternative, you can continue around by increasing hook size to 5 mm / H and use the SC only stitches to continue to go around the square.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
