So I have finished joining up all the blocks and have started on the edging of my cottage garden themed blanket. I had a DC then three chains then a DC (SC,US) around the edge to work with, so I am doing a DC into each DC and a HTR, TR, HTR into each three chain space.The result is quite pleasing, as it curls and I want to create a foliage effect.
I am not certain if I will go round more than once, I shall have to see how it looks on a bed- which I’ve not done yet.
A few facts- it took a 150g of wool to edge each block, then nearly 400 to join them all. I over bought on my joining yarn so I have plenty to play with on the border.
It is pretty heavy now and very warm- with a duvet even in winter it would be very warm on a bed. I have run out of Downton Abbey programmes to watch while stitching in the ends from joining, and there are a LOT of ends. Fortunately I have three hours of the Great British Bake off master class still to catch up on. Bliss. I have a few more ideas for it, but I have other crochet plans for Christmas to get on with now, so it will be a while before I next show this blanket.
