I’ve been getting so much great feedback about the border I’ve been crocheting onto my Puppy C2C Blanket that I thought I would make a separate post to walk you through it. I am using a modified version of the Block Stitch with HDC stitches. It works great as a border on C2C blankets but as I show you in this tutorial you can also use it as a Granny Square or continue rounds to make it into a large blanket!
I hope you love these Fall yarn colors as much as I do! I am using Bernat Super Value in Oatmeal, Forest Green, Aqua, Pumpkin, Gold, and Topaz. You can find the colors HERE on Yarnspiraitons.com
Grab your size H Crochet hook and lets get started!
