Country Cottage Blanket Pattern

Modified Sedge Stitch

While this is the traditional sedge stitch after the first few rows, it starts out modified.

Normally, you skip chain stitches in the first row and work three stitches in a chain. If you plan on crocheting a border on your blanket, this can cause the border to pull the yarn away from the first row. I am not a fan of the unsightly gaps on this end. It is much more professional looking if the bottom, top, and sides look similar.

Therefore, I worked the half double crochet in each stitch across for row 1. This provides a nice sturdy base to work from. When the border is crocheted, there is no unsightly gap.

You can find the full tutorial for the sedge stitch along with the video tutorials for both left and right hand crocheters on the website.
