What do you think about putting a crochet edge around knitted squares?

 

I was thinking about doing it with some of mine, but not sure if it would look right, using a contrasting colour. Thought it might be easier and neater to join them.

I think I will block my squares first and see how they turn out, need to find a contrasting yarn to use for the border.

Having problems blocking my sqaures, can't get them to the right size, if I stretch them too much they will look naf, so have bloacked them the best I can, will leave them over night and have a look at them tomorrow.

I have completed another square, used RHSS in plumb pudding and the pattern was a mock rib stitch, happy with the way it turned out.

 

Need to re-do the crochet border on the sqaures as it's too tight, so gonna use a bigger hook.

 

Need to find some patterns in the book Iam happy with doing.
