I would never have thought that joining up blocks for a crochet blanket could be so much fun, but it is. To see it growing- literally before my eyes,is as exciting as seeing the flowers grow in the garden. I have started from the centre and am working out- here is where I am .
I edged each block with the same wool as I am using to join them together. It is
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.
But all in all it looks OK to me
Right, just about got time to do one more before I go off to work!
