Crochet Edging

Hello my dear sweet blogging friends.
Here I am once again showing you a blanket that I have added a crochet edge to.  This is quickly becoming one of my favorite things to do.  This is my second blanket to do this to.  I find myself walking around the house studying the blankets that are spread around here and there to see if there is one that would benefit from a pretty edging. 

This blanket was ideal because it already had a blanket stitch all the way around,
which made me pretty happy.  All I needed was some matching yarn and a crochet hook. 
Once I started crocheting it went rather quickly.
   I was really wanting a fancy edge with lots of drape and lacy design but I ended up settling for a simple scalloped edge shell stitch.  It's feminine enough without being over the top. Plus it's practical.  This blanket gets a lot of use.  It's traveled with us to many of our son's football games and come Spring, it will go with us to track meets too. 
  I love the delicate hand made touch it adds to an already pretty blanket....
...and I'm thinking this nice crochet edge was just what this blanket was needing all along.
It's complete now.
I wonder how many more blankets I can find around the house that I can do this too?
