2016 NC State Fair Project: Crocheted Edging on Tea Towel

This is the first time I've entered a piece in the NC State Fair category for crocheted trim on a household item. As you can see, the tea towel's design was my inspiration for the edging. I liked the idea of echoing the white dots on the towel with white and red disks in the edging.

The piece is a combination of elements from two patterns. The solid red heart shapes are from pattern "#15" from 111 Easy Edgings by Terry Kimbrough (Leisure Arts, 1997; p. 10). The disks are from pattern "#116" in Around the Corner Crochet Borders by Edie Eckman (Storey Publishing, 2010; p. 236).

I used size 10 red and white crochet cotton with a size 6 steel crochet hook. Each disk was crocheted separately and then sewed to the red edging which had already been sewn onto to the towel.
