I’ve nearly finished the first ‘strip’ of my (knitted) patchwork blanket - finished size will be about 60 x 70 inches, as requested by the charity I’m making it for.
It’s in different length/different colour ‘squares’ - (about 7 inches wide, mostly garter st with the odd moss st) so how to join the strips without it looking messy, is the question.
I think I’ve seen crochet suggested. I never learnt to crochet but inherited a set of hooks from my mother, and have just been watching a tutorial on YouTube. Without too much difficulty I’ve made a 4 inch chain, so my question, dear crochet-expert GNers, is, can I use crochet to join the strips with a thin border all the same colour? Would it mean 2 thin borders joined?
Apologies for complete cluelessness but I know a lot of you are a whizz with a crochet hook.
I do have time to practise whatever would be needed!
