Your vertical joins will look something like this!
When making the first vertical join you will have lots of fairly loose squares that twist very easily. To counter this I used some safety pin type stitch markers and joined the loose squares at the corners to hold them securely. (I forgot to take a photo....sorry!)
Next you do the horizontal joins and that's it!
NB! I don't weave in my ends at this point. I find it neater to weave them into the completed border.
So here we have my Dance Around the Beach Huts blanket. I laid it out on the carpet to take a photo and boy! it's really tricky to get the lines straight!!!
That and I had to work quickly before a kitty decided to make a bed on my blanket ;-)
My muted and very sophisticated all grey blanket.
This blanket will live in my lounge. I'm about to buy a new sofa and chair and this colour way will work perfectly. I'm delighted that the single colour really makes the textures sing!
I've made this blanket with Scheepjes Merino Soft in colour 603 Michaelangelo.
And here is my Dance Around the Beach Huts blanket in it's bright bright glory!
This blanket will live in my guest bedroom....or possibly my bedroom. I haven't quite decided as yet!
Again it was made with Scheepjes Merino Soft in the following colours:
645 Van Eyck
UK peeps can buy the yarn from Wool Warehouse (this isn't an affiliate link....I just love this store!!!) Overseas peeps can check out the Scheepjes site here for their nearest stockists :-)
Ok so now I'm ready to make the border! The final stretch!
I have to admit that I'll be a little sad once this journey is at an end. I have loved every minute of it!
Til next time x
