First stage of the border is 2 rows of double crochet (3 DC in each corner stitch). This neatens the edge.
I've then gone round again with a row of shell stitch.
I'm not finished this round of stitches but took a photograph of the corner in the meantime.
Once I am done with the border I'll then sew flowers and leaves to the blanket. I've been crocheting these a few at a time. They are lovely to do as it takes no time to complete one and it's lovely to have a tub of flowers.
The flowers are from a book by Lesley Stanfield, 100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet. The leaves are from a pattern on Attic24
