I’m making a blanket for my toddler out of “the dreaded ‘H’ yarn” (Lion Brand’s Homespun yarn, that is! :teehee: ), and I need some ideas on how to finish it. I decided to sew individual blocks and seam them together somehow, because by doing the blanket in chunks, it would go quicker. They’re just going to be basic garter stitch square blocks because I know this blanket is going to get lots of “love” (you know, dragging around on the ground everywhere, food spilled on it, drooled on, etc.!)
When I join them together, should I use a contrasting yarn, or should I go with the same color? I thought a contrasting yarn might be cute for her, but maybe not? :shrug: I don’t know if my picture shows it well enough, but the yarn I picked has so many colors blended into the base color of purple–teal, gold, fuschia…I was looking at Homespun’s “Fuschia” color for a possible contrast.
Okay, now for the second question–how to join the blocks together? Should I seam them together invisibly, or maybe join them using a single crochet? I’m tempted to do the single crochet because I’m not sure my seaming will be all that great, but I’m not sure how it would turn out single crocheted together.
Lastly, any ideas if I should do some type of creative edging around the whole perimeter of the blanket? I suppose if I seamed using a contrast color, then I should probably consider doing the perimeter of the blanket in the same matching color, right?
Sorry if these are basic questions, but I didn’t want to spend money on yarn that might look dorky the way I put it together. :oops: :teehee:
