You might remember that here I said I only had two rows left to join on the Cottage Garden CAL Blanket. Well that has now been done and the ends have been darned in. I have started edging the blanket and this is where I am up to. I have done a row of trebles in the paler green and now I have almost finished a row of trebles in the pale purple (was it called lavender?) colour. Have a look…
I have been thinking about edging and I think such a pretty blanket requires a pretty edging although this does present some problems. More about this later.
I had a good old Google about and a look through Pinterest to see what edging I could find. These were my two favourite links
Plenty of inspiration there. I particularly like the fact that the Craftsy link shows how many stitches each pattern is worked over without having to search about too much.
I initially thought the Cathedral Edge would look good but then I counted my stitches along the edges. They don’t quite match… almost but not quite. I considered the idea of evening them up but then decided that if I picked a smaller pattern, one thats over fewer stitches, it might fit better/more easily. Plus any discrepancy might be less noticeable. So now I am thinking of going with the picot edge. Any suggestions from you more experienced crocheters out there?? What do you do if your sides don’t have the same amount of stitches? Or do they always have the right number… is it just me??
