  8. Hi,

    Your pictures above inspired me to abandon a wip and create a baby blanket using a cream base and a variegated yarn. Unfortunately I've got ends to sew in on most rows as I couldn't take the yarn up the sides. Do you think I will still be able to create a bord or will it be too unstable and pull out the sewn in ends?

    Thanks, catherine

    1. Hi glad you like...it should be stable enough just make sure you catch a full stitch when doing the border

  9. I've crocheted for thirty years, and this is still my favorite stitch! I've heard it called linen stitch, seed stitch, and moss stitch, and it doesn't matter what you call it or how you do it, it is always beautiful.
