The border

It seems that I didn’t post the border for this blanket yet…so let me post it now!  But before I do you might want to refresh yourself with the square I used and how I joined.

It was such a pretty border to make too.  I did most of it in a car trip down south to visit my parents, so I can guarantee that it is a travel friendly border.

So here is what I did.

Once I finished joining, I did the first row in the joining colour, working 1 single crochet into each stitch and 3 into the corner (double crochet if you’re using UK terms.

The second round was in the white.  For this round I began with a chain 4, skipped a stitch and then worked one double crochet, chain 1 into every second stitch (the chain 1 is missing a stitch).  In the corner I worked 3 of the double crochet, chain 1’s into the middle corner stitch of the round before.  (If you use UK terms the double crochet is a treble).

The third round was in the light blue colour.  This round I began with a chain 3, 1dc into a double crochet stitch and then worked 2 double crochet into each double crochet of the round before.  In the middle double crochet of the corner in the last round I worked 5 double crochets.  (this is a treble in UK terms).

The last round is where it looks really pretty!  You essentially alternating with 1 single crochet and 1 front post double crochet all the way around.  Nothing changes for the corner, keep alternating single crochet, front post double crochet all the way round.  (if you’re using UK terms you’re doing a double crochet and a front post treble).

So there you have it!  I’ll make sure I write up the full version of the pattern eventually.  If you need direct help from me then be sure to join my facebook group for help and ideas!
