About the edging... when looking for inspiration, I saw a lot of fringe. Fringe is good - but not the way I wanted to go. I had visions of girls playing with it and accidentally pulling it apart. Bobble edging seemed like the answer - and I LOVE the results!
These are going to twin 5 year old girls. I wanted similar but different. One loves pink, the other loves purple, so there you go!
Each square has 11 rounds of color... then one round of white. I used a modified Join As You Go method to connect them. Instead of connecting in each of the DC stitches, I simply used a slip stitch between each of the granny clusters. I love the clean edge this gives.
The neckline has one round of half double crochets to finish it off. The bottom edge includes: one round of granny clusters in white, a round in the color, a round of half double crochet in color, and then the bobble stitch. I will be posting instructions and pictures of the bobble edging soon. It's definitely become one of my favorite ways to finish off a project and was quite simple. Just chains and dc clusters.
