Here is the final part of the Stitch Sampler Autumn Rhapsody Blanket Crochet a Long at Nana’s Crafty Home!
Whew – what a ride this Crochet a Long has been! There has been so much love for this blanket! I had no idea this blanket pattern would be loved by so many and I would have the delight to see so many of your blanket creations along the way. ❤️
I have had an absolute blast watching your blankets grow and seeing all of the different color and stitch variations you have created along the way. So much creativity in this community!
And don’t worry if you are just now coming to the Autumn Rhapsody Blanket party – you can make this blanket at any time and even share your progress with everyone – always! The pattern will be free on the blog whenever you get a chance to stitch it up. If you would like all the Autumn Rhapsody Blanket details you can find them HERE.
I really struggled with the stitches I wanted to use for the border. Originally my plan was to create another unique stitch for the border. However, once I started working on it I felt it was just too busy. I really wanted the focus to remain on the main part of the blanket without a lot of distractions. So, basically the border is super simple and quick! Of course, feel free to add rounds (perfect way to make the blanket a little larger) or bring your favorite stitches from the main body of the blanket to the border.
