These are pictures of a washcloth from a towel set that was a wedding present.
My husband's great aunt crocheted the edging. I want to copy this style onto a baby blanket. My trouble is that no instructions I can find cover how to attach the trim. They all assume you are going to sew it on after you made it. I know these pictures are a little fuzzy, but the trim on these towels was clearly crocheted directly onto the towel. How do I do that? Just keep a needle threaded ahead of the hook? Obviously I would only need it for the first round to do the foundation chain. Should I use a tiny hook instead and hope I can force it through the fabric?
