Mila’s quilted look crochet blanket phase two. Contrasting border color before the join. (Thinking of flat braid join.) As you can see, I’m stitching the two squares together back-to-back (right sides facing out) with a single #crochet. So when the blanket is turned over, the exact square is on the opposing side, just in the opposing color. I probably could’ve also done #grannysquare to the back of a sc square, but with all the brain work and hand work I’m already doing, this is enough, lol.
My contrast color is Caron Simply Soft in Heather Grey.
Two main colors (same yarn) are Victorian Rose and white.
The entire blanket is 8×8. Which means 16 squares each row. For a total of 128 squares. But when they are joined 2 into one, it leaves me a total of 64 squares to work with. Not sure of measurements yet because I’m not positive on the border quite yet (how wide I will have it on the outside.) I estimate 4 feet x 4 feet, but that’s generous. Could be slightly smaller. This is actually fun, and going fairly quickly. The entire project I mean.
