I am just learning how to crochet and I can't wait to try making this blanket pattern!

Can anyone help me with the edging instructions?

I am assuming you are having a problem understanding where the pattern states working in ends of rows of first side, sc in first row, 2 sc in next row, sc in next row. When you crochet up the SIDES of the afghan, you are putting 2sc in one row and then 1 sc in the the next row. This is a common technique when edging crochet items since these edges are never even like the original chain row or the cast-off row. I hope this helps.

I am confused by the edging, can you explain them any better?

This Beautiful Beginner Crochet Throw sounds just like my first crocheted afghan. The pattern is really easy and great for anyone just starting out or a old timer who is looking for a quick and easy throw to make. With all the how to videos out there today a beginner can learn new stitches easily. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet throw pattern.

Simple but elegant is how I describe this Beginner Throw. For expert chrocheters this is very easy to make but for those who don't know this craft, this looks so complicated. But no, this is very easy to make. Just go ahead and enjoy the beauty of this throw. This will also look great in earth colors, pastels or vibrants.

Ooh, this is a pretty design. It's simple yet it's not boring.

I bet this would make a great baby blanket! Especially with the super soft yarn. Plus the stitch pattern creates gaps so baby wouldn't get too hot.

This blanket looks very elegant and actually does seem easy enough for a beginner. This would be a great first afghan for a new crocheter!
