The Border Square

Hello and salutations from me - a long-lost blogger.
I have been keeping busy with various health issues with the hubby, traveling to Portland every so often. I am trying to get back into posting, so thought I'd get my footies wet with just a quickie. I have a square that is being tested which I'd like to post for you all when it is done and ready.  In the meanwhile, here is another one without a pattern!

This one is made up, in a way, by me, but then again it isn't. Confused?
I took borders out of Edie Eckman's book. They all had to be 2+1 borders, and then I just strung them together, one right after another! I think it turned out rather nicely. I wasn't thrilled with the wierd trebles (in the middle in chocolate) as they didn't turn out nicely like hers did. Might have been a thicker yarn. However, I did like the over all square and how it came together.

You might try the same thing - simple as one, two, three! Just make sure the borders have all the same counts....or if you pick one that might be a 4+1, be sure you use it on a row that then has worked up to that many stitches so you can use it. The trick is how many stitches you add on each row at the corners - it has to mesh with the patterns! ;o)

More to follow! ;o)


  1. Welcome back and this square is beautiful! Hope you are feeling better.

  2. Thanks Clara! I'm not so foggy headed now. That's always a plus! Just have to keep my feet on solid ground. :o)

  3. I like your square and hope the Portland runs are not as frequent as hey were.
