  1. If this is in the wrong place, please let me know. Here's the story: I started this *pattern* over 40 years ago. I don't remember where I got it, but I do remember it was supposed to be a canopy for a tester bed. I wanted it to be a coverlet. I never finished the original start. Fast-forward to June 2017, and a friend started a group that meets at our library to knit and crochet. I brought an example of my 40-year-old work, and we figured out the pattern. 621 squares and lots of seaming later, I started trying to figure out what kind of border this thread crochet coverlet needed. It's very poufy, and it needs a strong border to make it feel more stable. After trying various things, I decided that a relatively plain border would look best. I took off in single crochet, doing blo every third row and doing 3sc in each corner. I'm on row 17, and figured I'd go to 20 or 21, with the last three all being blo. Now I've misplaced my 1.25mm crochet hook and can't continue until I find or replace it. I figured that was a sign that I should ask for some advice. I know the item will have to be blocked, but I'm not sure that blocking will even out the poufy squares and the border that's tight, making the sides uneven in width and/or length. Suggestions welcome. Since the crochet hook I was using apparently grew legs and walked off, I'm not totally averse to (waaah!) ripping all the border out and starting over.

    Bicolor cowl border stitch

    I am making a bi color cowl on Lion Brand Lion Suede which is a bulky yarn on a size k hook and dcs.I am looking for any suggestions anyone may have about what may make a good border for it?
  3. Hi, I'm relatively new crocheter and I'm trying to put a simple crochet lace border on a fabric tablecloth. I've searched the internet for guidance on how much to increase to get the tablecloth to lie flat, but have been unsuccessful. Any guidance or patterns that you could refer me to? Thanks so much, Lynn
  4. I'm trying to add an edge to a crazy brick stitch. I can't seem to do it without causing rumples or adding stitches. I just want to add a double stitch border. baby is coming soon and this has to be shipped to HI before then so if you can help me asap that would be great.

    Kisses & Cuddles Appreciation Blanket

    Well after making my wedding bouquet for my wedding in March 2015, our three year old son asked me to make him a bright green blanket. Now I'm not very good at straight lines in crochet let alone straight lines on paper lol, so I opted for a granny square throw. It consists of 63 squares (7x9) Each square has 6 rounds in it! I finished off with a double crochet border to make it more square. I have attached a few photos, one is off the blanket up close and personal, one is one with my son asleep with it on top of him, He went to sleep while I was finishing the border on the blanket and then woke up to it. I thought I would surprise him. However I woke up to being kissed and cuddled in appreciation for his blanket that I made him. So I managed to get a photo of him with it. I hope you like it! It's been a long time since I worked on a big project that I could post on here! I hope you like it! My next project I want to do and it will be my first attempt at making one, is a pillow!

    Border advice?

    Hi there! I'm making a baby blanket for a little girl named Rhia with the alligator/crocodile stitch. I want a border to go with it, but I have no idea what would be a good fit- especially because the blanket itself is about 1/2" thick. Any suggestions to finish up this project? Thanks!

    Butterfly border

    This spring I decided to add "little crochet something" to my balcony. I made the first border. Maybe you remember the butterflies - first I decorated the candy jar with them http://www.crochetville.com/community/topic/148470-wanna-some-sweets/
  9. How to decorate the jar for sweets? I found a picture of this butterfly border on pontopresto1.blogspot.com and made one. The jar full of sweets was a gift.
  10. I have been working on a blanket while my 10-year old daughter has been in the hospital. (Well, actually I've been working on several projects as we've been here a little over 3 weeks now.) The blanket I am working on now is ready for it's edging and I want it to be a ruffle. I don't have access to my patterns or books (We are staying at the hospital or RMH) and I'm hoping someone can suggest their favorite ruffle patterns. Nothing really ornate as it's a bunch of two-toned granny squares, but I would like it to be about 2-3 inches wide. I appreciate the help - my brain is frazzled!
  11. Hi folks! I'm new here, and in desperate need of help! Rnd 3 of these instructions are messing me up: Border: Join brown in any corner ch-4 sp (draw up a lp, ch 1). Rnd 1: * Work 5 sc in corner ch-4 sp, sc in each st across side working (3 sc in ch-4 sp, dc in seam, 3 sc in next ch-4 sp) in block corners; rep from * around; sl st in beg sc–692 sts. Rnd 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in each st around, working 3 dc in center sc of each 5-sc corner group; sl st to top of beg ch-3--700sts. Rnd 3: Ch 3 (counts as first dc); working 3 dc in center of each 7-dc corner group, work 2 brown dc, 1 gold dc around; end working 1 gold dc; sl st to top of beg ch-3-- 708 sts. Fasten off brown. Rnd 4: * Ch 5, beg in 2nd ch from hook work (sc, hdc, dc, tr), sk 2 sts of border, sl st in next st; rep from * around; sl st in beg sc. Fasten off. How the heck do you alternate colors like that? When was gold even introduced? Here's a pic of the afghan so far: And here's a pic of what it's supposed to look like with the border: HELP ME PLEASE. It's my boyfriend's birthday present, and he's picking me up tomorrow night!
  12. I am a a newbie crocheter and making an ear warmer with a contrasting border. I have completed my chain of 70 and sc 16 rows and am ready to crochet the border but don't know how. Do I sc just the top and bottom rows and then connect the two end pieces together. Do I use a sl st to connect the ends? Thank you.
  13. For a charity raffle, it had to be something eye catching. It is on the cover of "50 Sensational Crochet Afghans & Throws." I changed the color scheme just a little, and the outline stitch, and added a border from Jean Leinhauser.
