So, I'd taken a break from the blankie repair job I'd been doing, and decided to make something just because I wanted to make it.
And here it is...
Here's a better view of the corner and the center.
Can you tell that the flowers are made with popcorn stitches? I don't like popcorns. The interrupt my crocheting. They are in the same league with pineapples...
I joined the border with a half double crochet. I didn't like using white, it really needed color there. A whip stitch looked bad, and so did slip stitch, single crochet, and double crochet joining. So, even though I rarely use it, and certainly not for joining, I used the half double crochet. It looks nice. It gives it a relief from the flatness of the piece and didn't show any white stitching on the opposite side of the stitch, which is what happens when you use the other stitches.
And now, I don't know how to finish it. Should I make a border with white yarn? Blue or yellow? A combination of these colors? This is like playing chess. I do well until the end, and then I don't know what to do. A friend suggested doing only a white single crochet border.
Please leave your comment here and help me out! Thanks!
