Long-time knitter/crocheter but needing some insight.
I’ve done 48 ‘sampler’ squares, knitted, and am doing sc border on each and will then join for afghan. Using up stash of 100% acrylics and all are exactly 6"x6". (And blocked as best as acrylic can be.) Not concerned with shrinking/warping issues…just that the edges and join look great.
Being each sq is done with diff yarn, diff gauge, diff st pattern, I’m finding that the sc border on some looks better worked in every st whereas it’s better if I do sc/ss…which means the appearance of fewer actual sts… on others.
Should I be aiming for visual consistency or accept that some will have lots of visible border sts, some not so many? I’ve experimented on a few and the sc/ss, which might look good on sq A looks too loose on sq B.
Any feedback appreciated.
