In the previous step, we have made a round of crab stitches. In this step, we will make the final round of the trim.
Last time we left off making a sl st into space between two dc.
What we are going to do next is to make a chain grabbing each dc.
Look at the picture below.
You need to make each ch quite loose, much looser than a regular beginning chain. You might need to try several times. If you see that the side of your blanket is too tight, unravel the chain and try again with even looser/bigger ch.
Here is what the chain will look on the other side.
And here it is done in the original color.
I highly recommend making this chain as the final round because along with the crab stitch, it will prevent the blanket from stretching and losing its rectangular shape. What is more, it looks very pretty.
Make this kind of chain around your entire blanket. Join in the first ch with a sl st.
Tah Dah! We are done!
Phew! That was a lot of work, but the result is quite beautiful!
If you have followed this tutorial through, I would love to hear your feedback. Was it useful? Did it make sense? Were you actually able to make this blanket? How did it turn out?
