Having finished joining the rest of my Mini Scrap Granny’s squares, I moved right on to the blanket’s border.
The first round is simple granny clusters worked in the same green yarn as I used for the blanket’s background, Red Heart Soft ‘Light Yellow Green’. I’ve downshifted one size to a G hook and I used Compact UK’s Flat Border Cluster whenever I came to a join between two squares. This combination gave me a beautifully flat edge!
Staying with the G Hook, I quickly added a round of plain double crochet with Simply Soft ‘Grape’, then a second round of green granny clusters. It looks so good!
I started on yet another round of granny clusters, this time using RHSS ‘Tea Leaf’, but I didn’t think I should continue.
The problem isn’t something I can show you in a photograph. The RHSS ‘Tealeaf’ is much stiffer than either the Red Heart Soft ‘Light Yellow Green’ or Simply Soft ‘Grape’. I need to find a way to lessen the difference in the feel of the crocheted fabrics they create.
Those are pretty big holes between the ‘Light Yellow Green’ granny clusters. Maybe if I switch to a denser stitch the difference between the drape of ‘Light Yellow Green’ and the upcoming ‘Tealeaf’ won’t be as noticeable.
Said in an irritating whiiiiny voice. . . “I don’t waant to rip-out an entire rooooouuuuund!!”
But that’s what I’m gonna do.
