Crocheting Trim

Today I decided to create a trim for a project I am going to be working on and this is what I came up with...
I've had some folks ask for the pattern so I took the time to write it down in case I ever want to make it again. I really don't mind people using the pattern below but it would be nice if I was given the credit if you use it. I just came up with this on my own as I went along.... here is the pattern...

By Rebecca McAuley

Create a chain the length of trim you desire
Single crochet across chain
ch 3, turn
Make 4 Triple Crochets in same stitch as Chain 3
*** Skip 3 single crochet stitches
Single crochet in next stitch
Chain 3
Make 4 Triple Crochets in same stitch**
Repeat ** across to end
At end turn
***Chain 3, Picot (which is another chain 3 and a slip stitch in first chain), chain 3
Single crochet in chain 3 space of shells in previous row.***
Repeat*** across to the end and tie off.


  1. That's a lovely trim Becky. Your directions are well written and easy to understand.

    I love crocheting trims and have even started making some with beads. I bought a wonderful book titled The Beaded Edge and have had fun making some of these. There are some wonderful antique trim/edging patterns out there too.

    I look forward to seeing what you use this trim of yours with.

  2. That will make a very nice finish touch to whatever you are making. I've never tried to make trim, but I've admired it very often. I have one set of simple, white pillow cases with a think bit of trim and though there really isn't anything "special" about them I think that trim makes them special.
