Henri Blanket Finale 2016

8th Jan 2016
Henri Blanket is finished!  Really happy I decided to go with this edging.


So simple to work too, once you  have crocheted your equal round of dc, you then start the 1dc 1ch combo which when using the two colours creates this lovely stripe.


I used the joining shade for the foundation round but wasn't very happy with the finish so decided early on that I would work a surface crochet chain round to disguise this.  I used the main blanket colour and the lovely zingy yellow, 'really pops'.


Above is the completed edge. Surface crochet to tidy up below.


Ta Da!.......Finally the finished blanket ready for Henry to snuggle, I am delighted with it and if cost effective and of interest should be producing a kit in the future.


Next project the Genevieve Gloves as published in Inside Crochet Issue 46, using up lots of Wool Cotton stash so again may produce another limited kit.
