3rd WIP? Done!

… but it took me a while to join those squares and to do the edging. I am very happy with the outcome though.

The squares are knitted in whatever was in stash and in quite a few different patterns. Each squre has a small edging of single crochet stitches, joined by crocheting in the back loop of each stitch.

With regard to the edging: tribute to whom tribute is due! Marisa inspired me with her beautiful baby blanket blog post to try the attached i-cord. Quite frankly, that’s not only the neatest edging I have seen in a long time, it adds structure to my blanket, as all the yarn used tends to stretch differently – now the cord holds the squares in place.

It took forever to make that cord and the corners were a challenge to knit (until I figured you how to do it) but now it’s all done.

Here’s the blanket:

  1. Die Decke ist soooo toll!!! Wow!!! Wirklich schön. Und jetzt verstehe ich auch was du meintest mit “die vier verschiedenen Ecken passen zur Decke”🙂. So schön bunt. Ein Traum, toll! Eine gute Idee, um die Vorräte zu reduzieren…. Liebe Grüße, Marisa
