So you’d like to crochet a baby blanket but aren’t quite ready to tackle the full project? Then this is the project for you! In this video lesson, you will be taking a plain receiving blanket and adding a decorative edging using single crochet and chain stitches.

To make sure our stitches are even, we’ve used a great product called Tiger Tape. Tiger Tape will help you create straight, even stitches and sew buttonhole and blanket stitches with the correct length and distance, all without marking the blanket fabric. Tiger tape is a white self-adhesive tape with evenly-spaced black lines printed across its width. Run a length of Tiger Tape across your blanket and the edge of the tape acts as a guide for long, straight rows of uniform stitches.
