Corner to Corner Blanket Edging

Happy Navaratri to all my dear readers.  
Navaratri is a Hindu festival celebrated for nine nights (nava means nine and ratri means night), dedicated to the nine forms of Shakti the Mother Goddess. As with all other festivals in India, this festival too is celebrated in different ways in different parts of India, but always with great pomp and splendor involving a lot of color, lighting, music and dance. The tenth day is known as Vijayadashami or Dussehra which marks the victory of Goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasura as well the victory of Lord Ram over the Demon king Ravana.

Some time back I showed you the corner to corner blanket I had made. It looked quite good as it was...without a border, but when I came across a pretty neat border pattern I had to add it to my blanket.

Isn't that spiffy! I love the knit-like effect of the stitch. My lovely friend Susan at Felted Button has a PDF pattern for the the blanket as well as the edging and its FREE!!

Here's a closer look:

The pattern by Susan is called Spring into Summer has detailed pics for the blanket as well as the edging.

I think the stitch is called crochet stockinette stitch (correct me if I am wrong). Mikey at Crochet crowd calls it the Camel stitch and he has a video which shows how to do the stitch.

So, how do you like my blanket? I think it is super cute. And so does BowWow!  :)

  8. A perfect edging to a perfect and very pretty blanket. It's lovely to see your pretty face on the side bar. I haven't visited for a while as we've been in France. Have you seen my new blog? It's all about the old farmhouse we've just bought to renovate in France. I'm still doing my old blog too though! If you like to take a peek at my new one it's called Brambling in Brittany. Here's the link: http://bramblinginbrittany.blogspot.co.uk/ Have a great day. Maggie xx
