How do I put a holes in a baby blanket so that I can crochet around it? Does this make sense? I made a flannel blanket, and now I would like to put a scallop crocheted edge on it. How do I make the holes..........would also like to do this on some pillowcases, but I am clueless!! (in over ways than one!! lol)
Thanks in advance!
When I used to add an edging on receiving blankets, I used a small steel crochet hook to make the holes needed. I suppose you could also use a large needle, which is what my friend used to do.
Anyway, best of luck to you.

I use a large needle and do the blanket stitch around it, I have tried many ways but this is the fastest for me and I like how it looks.
Stay Calm crochet on
Hi to make the holes you can use a skip stitch blade it makes the holes evenly spaced. I think the ones Walmart has are Fiskers. Hope this helps you out. I usually use the dollar store receiving blankets and use the stitches already around the blanket to anchor my edging stitches.
I have use the holes on the side of computer print out papers that you tear off. They are evenly spaced. When done just tear them off the project
Be happy Be safe
I haven't made any baby blankets like that, but I do make crocheted hangers for towels. I bought a little thing(don't know what it is called)at Lowe's Hardware that looks like a short ice pick. As I am crocheting the first round, I punch a hole in the edge and make a single crochet stitch. I do this all the way across, turn and continue my pattern stitches. I hope this makes sense to you.
