I have a few crochet and knitting related questions.:mrgreen:
I started knitting this week and my current project is a baby blanket. I’m just doing a really basic “knit” stitch but I’m hoping to add a crochet’d boarder of some sort. I was thinking of doing a shell boarder?
Is it possible for me to add the boarder after I’ve finished the blanket? Does anyone have any recomendations for a crochet’d or even knitted boarder? (I have never crochet’d before. This would be my first project doing so.) Thank you so much!
EDIT: I’m using super bulky Bernat baby blanket yarn with US 11 needles.
Here’s project and yarn
Sure it’s possible. I have a couple of shell borders I like and they work on garter stitch (which is what you have there all fluffy and soft.) You might want to practice a bit before you put the border on, since you’re just getting started in crochet, but it’ll work. I might also make the border ruffle on purpose so any mistakes won’t show
Here’s few links that may help too. Your blanket looks wonderful so far and the edging is going to be the perfect finishing touch.
