Edging the Riverwood Squares is the final course of action in the Riverwood Square CAL 2019 Series! Wow! It is hard to believe that we have reached the end of the crochet along. Time sure does fly by when you are having a blast. Now lets grab our linen color, the boys and gals, yarn needle, scissors, favorite beverage and maybe even a snack. Putting the edging around these fun boys and gals is going to take a little time but it’s worth it. Are you ready?
I would like to take a minute to say thank you to everyone who participated in this Riverwood Square Crochet Along and for those who were patient with me on this last part. We appreciate all the kind words and thoughts over the past few weeks. We are getting back into the swing of things and feeling much better. Hugs!
Level of Difficulty
Red Heart Chic Sheep, #4 Worsted; Color A (VIP), Color B (Suede), Color C (Polo), Color D (Linen), 20 yards (roughly)
Hook and Notions
Size Hook: I/9 (5.5 mm), scissors, stitch markers and blunt needle
When I joined my squares I crocheted 4 across which gave me 6 panels. I crocheted the 6 panels together just like I did when joining them. You may have used a different method than I did and that is perfectly fine.
Chain 1 at beginning does not count unless otherwise stated.
Shell – work 5 dc in indicated stitch
Today I will be showing you the edging I used for the Riverwood Squares. I chose a simple yet elegant edging for the blanket. I have to say I love how it turned out. Between the colors, joining and edging it makes me think vintage with a hint of shabby chic. What do you think? In the event you choose to use a different edging please let me know. I’d love to see it.
COLORS: A – VIP; B – Suede; C – Polo; D – Linen
