One of my least favorite things to knit/crochet is a blanket. Basically, I get bored. Most recently, I made a blanket for my newest niece. That blanket was frogged at least 4 times, probably more, because I couldn't find a stitch that I actually liked. Finally, I settled on the lovely Sea Mist Shell Stitch by Crochet Geek. I did a small rectangle and planned to crochet a border, but again, I couldn't find a stitch that I actually liked. I remembered Ricky's Blanket that I made about a year and a half ago, where, instead of knitting more length or a border, I sewed fabric around the edges. So, that is what I did with this little blanket. To do this, you would treat the knit/crochet part like a fabric blanket and add a border the same way. If you would like a tutorial for this technique, head over to Ricky's Blanket.
