Holding Your Tail

I did it! I recently decided that it was time to clear out and clean up my stash! (It was seriously getting out of hand.) And the clutter was driving me crazy. I think the chaos was actually getting in the way of my creativity--but that's for another post.

How To Crochet a Clean Edge Along a Rough Edge


How to Crochet Clean Edges along Rough Edges Tutorial by Felted Button (Colorful Crochet Patterns)

Maybe it's a blanket border. Maybe it's around a dishcloth or sweater. Or maybe along the edge of a scarf or cowl. But anytime you are instructed in a pattern to "work stitches evenly along edge" you are faced with a challenge. Where do you put your hook? How do you keep the stitches along the back from looking uneven and horrible? Particularly if it is in a contrasting color!
