I am knitting a small throw for a prayer ministry. I would like to add a crocheted edging on the ends. This is just the original prayer shawl pattern. K3P3. Does anyone have an easy edging pattern I could use to add a "little something" to dress it up some?

I use a shell stitch to edge mine. It finishes it off nicely. Another thing to do is put 2 or 3 stitches on either side and just knit them every row. That kinda makes a frame for it and you don't have to edge.

For scarves and a lace headband I knitted, I use a simple,. single crochet edging. I can't seem to wrap my brain around how to do a reverse single crochet. Can someon explain for a dummy?

I started using it for a scarf I made that curled at the edges, to prevent the curling.

It is also known as crab stitch. One of these links should help.

found this video for reverse single crochet

So that's what that stitch is! I made it up for myself and didn't realize it had a name. Duh! Silly me, of course a zillion other folks used it before I came along and worked it out for myself. It makes a very tidy finish.

I like a simple picot edging. My mom taught me this one. Attach your yarn. Chain 3 in the first stitch. Insert the hook into the next stitch. Draw up a loop. Slip stitch. Chain another 3 and keep repeating around. You will have to do 2 or 3 of these in each corner to wrap it around the blanket. I'm a new crocheter. I'm not sure if I'm doing this right. I look at the mm of the hook. Your hook mm should match with the knitting needle mm.
