A new crochet stitch - Updated

First of all welcome to Jonesfoyle and Judyk2310 via Bloglovin.

So far in my crochet I have been learning and working with only one stitch - treble, now I am learning how to add a border in a half treble - go me!

I practised various joins yesterday, using a contrasting wool, for when I want to join all the squares together. They are all different but none looked good without a border around the squares. Anyway, I got to grips with it after a while but no doubt, I will be thrown out completely when I need to make more squares using the treble.

Herewith just two of the squares with a border:
The new colour is called sage although it has more of a blue grey hint to it. It matches the carpet quite well but even if that or the curtains change in the future, I still like all the chosen colours I am working with.

I like this border as on the back (purple) or the front (green), it has a slightly different look to it.

Now the other two colours have borders:

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

  1. I love that colour. I'm working with a very similar shade called mint but it doesn't seem very mint to me. I've used trebles for my granny squares but might try a half treble for the border. It's fun to learn. Your work looks really neat and you've chosen some gorgeous colours. X

  2. I prefer the squares without the border - check out Lucy at Attic24 - she make a lot granny square blankets. A border around the whole blanket might be better.

    1. I did initially until I tried the various joins which just looked weird, so borders it is for me. I have no plans to make lots of blankets, maybe just this one.
