crocheted edge fleece blanket

i have the cutest flannel baby blanket and burpcloth set that has crocheted edges that jaren's grandma made. i could not figure out how she crocheted around the edges so neat and evenly! well in februrary at the project linus event, someone was mentioning there's a blade that fits onto your rotary cutter that makes the holes for you. so i started looking in the craft stores and didn't find any. then i turned to the internet and found the SKIP STITCH BLADE. it's that easy! you take off your basic blade and put on the skip stitch and cut around your border about 3/4 inch from the side. it leaves these little holes in your fabric to crochet through. you could do a lace type stitch, or a shell pattern, whatever you want. for this one i did a basic sc, then dc, then sc around. it's my new favorite thing :)

Anissa knows how to make those. In Utah they sell kits with the holes already punched in the fabric.
