Pinwheel with edge crochet


Pinwheel with edge crochet

Ok, here's the finished edge treatment. I went with some light green DK wool I had in my stash. I just did a single crochet all around and added some little loops on the tips as I went. The loops are kinda wonky right now; maybe re-blocking will help but I think I'll just let Monkey Boy have at the blanket and do his own version of blocking (which will involve lots of drool and chewing, I'm sure).

Here's a closeup of my newbie crocheting...

too cute! Your crocheting looks great! The green was a perfect color to use for the edging.

I love it! I am toying with the idea of making a pinwheel, since my youngest is almost 1, but I will defintely have to make it now!
