Gosh , it is over a month since I posted Cal6!
This often happens to me, I race along with the main body of a project and then the finishing off takes thought and concentration and spacious time, so it gets put to one side (I have SO many WIPs!!!) waiting for such a time to present itself. Does the same thing happen to you?
This project started off as a single bedspread, then my daughter said she would like it to go over her double bed and I saw the idea of an edging of these African Flower squares on Ravelry.
I have crocheted round the entire blanket as Lucy suggested for 3 rows, with first a row of DC(US style, I learnt from an American crochet book, so my instructions are always US style), then two rows of SC. Don’t you just LOVE how the ‘Bright Pink’ and ‘Bluebell’ ZING together!In fact I just love the way all the colours in this blanket dance and play together.Of course the squares are not an exact fit ….. there is this much of a gap that needs to be filled. I have worked out that it is 8 rows short along the short edge. So my next task is to work out how to fix that and attach the squares to each other and the blanket
Update: there is no need to ‘fill in’ any extra rows, the seams themselves add enough to the length. Join all the squares together, then find the middle of the row and the middle of the side of the blanket, pin and sew,easing in where necessary. It is best to have it a little too short rather than too long, so that you don’t have a frilly edge.
