The single strand attached i-cord uses very little yarn. It uses two dpn's, and it is 'knitted'. It would be worth anyone's time to learn, both crocheters and knitters.

If you cannot do the i-cord , and don't have enough yarn for double stranded crochet border, I'd crochet just an overcast edge, not even single crochet, something less noticeable than single crochet, nothing that will emphasize the thinness of the yarn.

And I like Anatares's suggestion, too!
I've done i-cord for sweater buttons, but not as a border. Is there a video that would show me how to to this as a border?
