Border #2

I posted the Americana Baby blanket
a while ago.


But, I didn't post the border.
As luck would have it,
I actually had it written out.

So,
for your crochet enjoyment
Here is my 2nd Border Pattern.

Signed,
I am Feeling To Generous Today :o}
(4009)

Worsted Weight Yarn


    Sample done in Vanna’s Choice Baby
  1. A. Scarlet ~ red
  2. B. White
  3. C. Colonial Blue
Crochet Hook ~ G/6 4.0mm – 8UK/Canadian
Tapestry Needle

wavy bunting

Round 1: Join A to any corner, ch 1, *sc 3 times into corner st, sc in each st and the join between blocks to next corner, * repeat from * to * around, sl st to beginning ch 1.

NOTE: You may want to change the sc on either side of the join and the join sp to this: hdc, dc, hdc. Sometimes this area looks low and this will even up the stitches.

Round 2: Ch 1, repeat round 1 from * to *, FASTEN OFF after ending sl st.

NOTE: Round 4 tends to twist yarn. My suggestion is :
  1. Cut each color of yarn into a piece 4 – 5 yards long (+/-) ~ measured from the tip of your nose to the tip of your fingers. . no yard stick needed.
  2. Whenever yarn gets twisted, just untwist this amount. It is a LOT EASIER that untwisting 3 skeins.
  3. You may want to cut the skeins into three different lengths so they will be woven in at different places around the border.

Round 4: Join Color A into any corner, ch 3, in same sp *PUB and dc, PU C and dc, PUA dc in next sp,* repeat from * to * around making sure to have 3 dc in each corner. Fasten off all three yarns at the end of the round.

    1. Hum, good question. No one has asked me this. I think it is something like this:
      Rnd 1: Sc in each st, 2 sc in each corner around.4
      Rnd 2: sc, [*ch 1, sk 1, sc in next st* repeat from * to * to corner, 3 sc in corner] repeat from [ to ] around.
      Rnd 3:(thi is what I wrote for Rnd 4) Join Color A into any corner, ch 3, in same sp *PUB and dc, PU C and dc, PUA dc in next sp,* repeat from * to * around making sure to have 3 dc in each corner. Fasten off all three yarns at the end of the round.

      Rnd 4: With white repeat Rnd 2.

      Rnd 5: Repeat Rnd 1 with red.

      Rnd 6: With Blue, [*dc in ch 1 of Rnd 4, ch 1,* repeat from * to * to corner, 3 dc in corner, ch 1,] repeat from [ to ] around.

      Let me know how this goes.
