Following my own CAL Week #5 - Joining and Trim

The Finish:
Yay! 
It's done.
 Joined with a sc row in red.
Roses were placed in a diagonal pattern.
Rows were alternated between the white, aqua and violet background.
Then:
 Border/Edge is a row of dcs in red,
then two rows of the following (one row of aqua, one in red):
 1 sc and dc in same stitch, skip one stitch and repeat.
 (Don't skip one on the corners.)
Ta Dah!
Now to place in the guest room,
either here on the bed:
 Maybe with the Bobble Zig Zag from this post.
Or on top of "Expedit" from IKEA:
Can you guess what's in those bins?
Either way it will probably move around a lot.
I think it's called ADHD. ;-)

You can make your own rose afghan or pillow by following Granny Rose links on the right side bar.
Or you can follow the posts to this one that link back to the Granny Rose posts here:


Let me know if you make one. 
I would love to see. :-)

  24. What a beautiful blanket. Thanks for sharing the instructions..I now need to make one of these.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Such great visual movement. Did you agonize over block placement? (Please say you did and I'll feel so much better about my own tendency to do it.) :)

    I like that ziz-zaggy border too. Rather like rickrack.

    P.S. It couldn't possibly be YARN in those bins, could it?
