This is a great pattern to learn how to do some basic edging- start with a napkin or pillow case or any hemmed fabric!

Abbreviations: 
ch = chain 
dc = double crochet 
ea = each 
sl st = slip stitch 
sp = space 
Materials Use thread size of your choice. Just to give you an idea of finished width, when made with size 10 thread and a US size 8 steel hook, edging is about 1 1/2 inches wide. When made with worsted weight yarn and a US size G hook, edging is about 4 1/2 inches wide. 
Starting Chain: Chain 19. 
Row 1: Dc in the 7th chain from hook, dc in each of next 2 dc, (ch 3, skip 2 ch, dc in ea of next 3 ch) twice. Turn. 
Row 2: Ch 6, (3 dc in next ch-3 space, ch 3) twice, 5 dc in beginning chain space. 
Row 3: Ch 3, sl st between 3rd and 4th dc (see photo illustration of this below), ch 6, (3 dc in ch-3 sp, ch 3) twice, 3 dc in ch-6 sp. 
Row 4: Ch 7, (3 dc in ch-3 sp, ch 3) twice, 5 dc in ch-6 sp. 
Row 5: Ch 3, sl st between 3rd and 4th dc, ch 6, (3 dc in ch-3 sp, ch 3) twice, 3 dc in ch-7 sp.
