Project: Round or Pinwheel Baby Blanket by Genia Planck, free free free!
- Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora
- 80% cotton, 20% angora
- colour #15511
Finished size: approx. 40cm radius
The pattern doesn't state any specific edging, but the blanket will curl up at the edges without a border of some sort. I had a long look on Ravelry at the 800-or-so other projects to gain some inspiration as to what borders look good and what I might possibly do. The final decision was to create a ruffle by increasing into each stitch on one round (kfbl) and then continue in a lace pattern from Nicky Epstein's Knitting Beyond the Edge book (which I picked up in Oslo last month).
This yarn has a bit of a bad reputation for shedding all over the place, but I really didn't have that experience. It's nice and soft and has great weight to it. Good thing that I like it, because I still have more than thirty balls of the stuff. ;-)
