How to Crochet a Tulip Flower Border


Hi I’m Donna Wolfe from naztazia.com
Today i’ll show you how to crochet a tulip border. It’s a multiple of three
stitches plus one. For my sample I have 34 stitches on this row. For the first
part of this border you’ll begin with the chain 3. This serves as a double
crochet stitch. Then chain 2. Skip 2 stitches. And make one double crochet in the next
stitch. Chain, two, skip two stitches and make one double crochet in the next stitch. Continue
doing this pattern of chain two, skip two stitches and make one double crochet in
the next stitch across the row. And here is what it looks like. For the corners I like to chain two and place another double crochet in the same spot
as the previous one. This way we’ll have a little tulip on each corner. And then
continue on down the sides and around the entire blanket with the pattern. Once
completed you’ll see the pattern around the blanket. At the very end I like to
chain two then slip stitch to the third chain of the original starting chain for
this section. For part two of the border begin with
the chain three then slip stitch in the next double crochet. Chain 1 and turn your work. In this little ring make one single crochet, one
half double crochet, and three double crochet stitches. One, two, and three. Then turn to the front. And in this front section make three
double crochet stitches. One, two, and three. Then reach over to the base of the first
stitch and slip stitch. And there’s your first tulip border. I’ll show this again.
Start with the chain three, then slip stitch over to the other double crochet.
Chain one and turn your work. Working on this back section make one single
crochet, one half double crochet, and three double crochet stitches. One, two, and three. And then turn to the front
side again. Find the double crochet from the previous part and using it as a base
make three double crochet stitches. One two and three. Reach over and slip stitch to the
original double crochet. Continue making these tulip stitches around the entire
blanket just like this. When you get to the corner just treat it
the same way as the other tulip stitches. Do the chain 3, slip stitch, turn and make
the stitches. That’s how I make the tulip crochet
border. To get more videos like this please subscribe to my YouTube channel.
