I'm a fairly new knitter - just a few months in the making.
I've done my requisite dish cloth, countless scarves, two hand bags and an adorable little kid's sweater knitted in the round.
I've just started a sampler afghan and have (after many starts and unraveling fits) finished my first block. Each block calls for a single crochet border.
I don't have the foggiest idea how to crochet. When I look for "how to's" on the 'net I find info on making chains...many types of chains, but chains none the less.
My questions are:
1) does any one know of a resource showing me how to add a crochet border to an existing block?
2) how necessary is it to crochet a border? Could I fake it and go knit a border? Would it matter as long as every block has the same treatment so they look the same when attached together?
Thanks in advance,
