Today’s Crochet Tip: Borders

Sometimes you make something and you look at it and it’s just meh. There is a simple solution to this. Put a border on it. Borders can really make a so-so project spectacular. 

Here is a square from March’s blanket before. 


Now here’s the same square after I started bordering it. 


Now it really pops. 

These squares are actually getting borders to make them easier to join but they demonstrate how even a single row of sc in a contrasting color can set things off. Imagine the possibilities with a more complex border. They are limitless and can take a blanket from boring to breathtaking. By the time you finish a blanket you have put so much of yourself into it. You owe it to yourself to spend one last hour staring at a project you might now be sick off. In the end it will be worth it.

    1. It definitely makes something more finished. Especially if it’s a c2c. They tend to have rough edges. If you border that in one or two rows of sc in the matching color it makes your edges so much more crisp. That’s what I did on the Ravenclaw blanket.
