I have been looking through this fabulous border book. It has lots of ideas, lots of great pictures of things to put on the edge of your project. It's a great book. I have several options I'm considering. I want something that will go with the granny stripes, not too open weave, not too light and airy, but I don't want to flat up repeat what is going on with the stripes. I also want the border to be substantial, not an afterthough.
Here are some I think would be nice.
This is border #5. I like that it is substantial, and curvy, with the shells, which I think would go well with the grannies. I would add a few rows of color first, because I think the border needs to be as colorful as the stripes.
I like this, too. It's border #15. This is, is it too like the grannies? Would it not stand out, or would it look like I'm just hurrying through the border?
I like this, too, it's border #24. Only thing is, I wonder if it is too open. I wonder if it would go with the grannies. Those stripes are fairly substantial. Could this border work with the blanket?
This is one I like as well. It's border #121. Only thing is, while yes, it is substantial, I wonder if it is TOO substantial. Is it too much? Will it overpower the blanket, especially if I add a couple of rows of color as a beginning border. My thought is that I am going to do first a row of grannies around the edge, just to establish an even edge, then go with maybe a couple of rows of solid color, solid double crochet, just to kind of solidify the edge, then do the chosen border.
Well, what do y'all think?
