Just finished a twin-bed-sized blanket of granny squares in a host of different colours (remnants and oddments I acquired) and would love to hear your suggestions for a nice edging. I've already completed one round of single crochet around the edge to give a foundation, but as the blanket is quite large, I think it would benefit from a scallop/shell or a thick rope effect as well. I don't really want to buy additional yarn to make the edging all one colour, so it will also be from remnants. Would it look better if I created several rows of different colors or keep changing the colors to give bursts of color round the edge? (Lots of ends to work in though?) Also, if I continue in single crochet, should I turn the work, or keep the right side facing, as I build up extra rows? Looking forward to hearing your thoughts! Thanks in advance.
Hi Cathy That was so nice of you to post such a comprehensive reply, I really appreciate it and it's given me the boost I needed to get it completed, now. Watch this space for a picture.
