And it is brilliant for when I need to add a few more crochet stitches to get the blocks right- some being slightly bigger/smaller than the norm of 6″ square. You can’t see them! Also it adds more green to the garden and gives texture as it is variegated- just like a garden.

I edged each square with 14 DCs ( SC-US) with one chain between each- sometimes there was a bit of ducking and diving going on with two chains occasionally or 15 DCs- but it doesn’t seem to show! A purist would spot it…. I am using a flat braid to join them.
