Are you an aspiring sewist who already knows how to crochet?  Or an experienced sewist who wants to learn how to crochet?  Hopefully this little pattern for crocheted lace trim will inspire you to combine sewing and crochet in one spectacular project!  It’s the perfect way to customize the colour of the lace to the colour(s) in your fabric and elevate your garment to a whole new level.

For our crocheted lace trim, we used Berroco Modern Cotton DK yarn and a 3.25mm hook. You can grab this yarn in store at our Coquitlam location.

Make sure to check out the accompanying video to watch all the steps! Remember, you can change the playback speed on YouTube to slow down certain points to see more clearly.

Crocheting Instructions

Getting started:  Make a slip knot and chain 4 stitches.

Row 1:  Into the first stitch that you chained, make 3 double-crochets, chain 2, and make 3 more double-crochets (all in the same stitch).  Chain three.  Turn work.

Row 2:  Into the space created by your previous “chain 2”, make 3 double-crochets, chain 2, and make 3 more double-crochets (all in the same chain space).  Into the chain space created by your original “chain 4”, make 1 double-crochet.  Chain 3.  Turn work.

Row 3:  Into the space created by your last “chain 2”, make 3 double-crochets, chain 2 and make 3 more double-crochets.  Into the space created by the last “chain 3” on that side, make 1 double-crochet.  Chain 4.  Turn work.

Row 4:  Into the space created by your last “chain 2”, make 3 double-crochets, chain 2, and make 3 more double-crochets.  Into the space create by the last “chain 3” on that side, make 1 double-crochet.  Chain 3.  Turn work.

Row 5:  Into the space created by your last “chain 2”, make 3 double-crochets, chain 2, and make 3 more double-crochets.  Into the space create by the “chain 4” on that side, make 1 double-crochet.  Then chain 2 and make 1 double-crochet into the same “4 chain” space.  Repeat the chain 2 and double-crochet 4 more times (for a total of 6 double-crochets).  What you have just crocheted will look like half of a wagon wheel with 6 spokes with 5 spaces created between the spokes.  Into the last “chain 3” space on that side make 1 slip stitch.  Turn your work.

Row 6:  Into each of the 5 “chain 2” spaces make 1 single-crochet, 3 double-crochets, and 1 single crochet.  These stitches will create the “petals” of the flower motif.  Chain 2.  Turn work.

Repeat rows 2 – 6 until desired length is achieved.
