I would like to add a knit border to a finished baby afghan, and I am having difficulty. First I tried picking up stitches all around the blanket and knit two rounds. Then I tried knitting a pattern, but it didn't work because I was knitting in the round with a flat knit pattern.
Then I thought perhaps I could add a piece of flat lace to the blanket, but I cannot figure out how to attach it as I knit the lace.
How do I knit a flat lace border on a finished object when there are no live stitches. Do I slip a stitch and then pick up a stitch and pass the slip stitch over the one I just picked up?
I hope someone has experience with this and can help me or can direct me to some online help or patterns.
