Day 20 – Back Border – First Round
We are going to be working a simple envelope (double) border.
This adds a nice weight to the edge of the blanket, and has the added benefit of hiding loose ends, so we don’t need to weave them in.
Starting with the Wrong Side facing you, and working all sts into the back line of the sl sts made on the foundation round, with 3.5mm hook (or one size smaller than used for main blanket), join Mint To Be with a standing tr in last sl st of any edge, 1 tr in same sl st, *2 ch (corner made), rotate to work across next edge, 2 tr in next sl st, tr in each sl st to last sl st before next corner, 2 tr in last sl st; rep from * twice more, 2 ch, rotate, 2 tr in next sl st, tr in each rem sl st, join to standing tr with a sl st. Fasten off.
