It turned out beautifully...
I used a size 10 variagated pink vintage J & P Coats thread, actually it took most of 2 partial (but fairly full) balls of this thread...
...making this a great way to use up all of the size 10 thread I have accumulated...
The scalloped edging is something I designed myself.
I felt it worked well with this fabric.
It's 3 rounds, the 1st is simply a single crochet foundation worked right on the blanket.
The 2nd row is 2 double crochet worked in each single crochet of the previous round.
The 3rd row is 10 triple crochet at the corner, skip one, slip stitch in the next, skip one, 5 double crochet in the next, skip one, 5 triple crochet in the next, repeat until corner.
Sometimes you might have an odd number of stitches and the pattern doesn't quite meet up with the corner, so you can work a reduce one in when necessary by taking the first half of a slip stitch on the hook then slip stitch in the next and pull it through both loops.
This is crocheted fairly loosly to allow for some shrinkage of the thread in the wash...these will go in the washer and dryer and my experience has been that a border that is crocheted too tightly will shrink up too much and cause the blanket not too lay flat at the edges after a few washings.
At any rate...it's fun to do, and I thought I would share how I go about it. My daughter loves this...she likes the lace I make for her and that makes me smile!
