Please help!!! I am trying to make a border onto a fleece baby blanket. I've crocheted a monkey face for the blanket but want to add a border with bananas within that border. Unfortunately, I can't find a way to crochet bananas into it using sc, dc, hdc, any stitch. Recommendations???
I'm not sure what kind of border you're making, but if you do one in sc, you can either chart a design into the pattern, or you can cross stitch a banana over the sc stitches. Hope this helps.
Thanks, Pure, for your help. I ripped the border so many times. Mainly I just have the sc foundation row. I can add any stitches to incorporate the bananas into the border but, in my head, the bananas are part of the stitching, whether they are sc, dc, tc, or whatever. I'm open to ideas.
Here's a link for borders/edgings: http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/edgings.php. You might think about sewing on appliques. Look in the trim/ribbon area at JoAnn's. I've done this with baby afghans I've made in the past and it came out very nice. Very time consuming but the finished product was well worth the effort.
Thank you, OnecraftCathy!!! I like the link you suggested! I will also check out JoAnn's and see what I can find there. I'll post a picture when I complete my blanket. I really appreciate your help!
