I am finishing up knitting borders for my afghan and sewing them on.
To make things as simple as possible, I measured my strip of knitted border and figured out how many garter stripes I needed for one afghan square (8”), slightly stretched — for me that was 32 stripes (or 64 rows). Then as I knit, I pinned a coilless pin on one side of the edging after every 32 stripes.
That way I didn’t have to keep stopping and measuring and it made it much easier to sew into place: I pinned the edging strip along the side of the afghan, matching the pin to each seam between blocks.
Then I sew the edging to the afghan.
I have three of the four edgings complete and sewn on:
Here’s a corner:
I am now knitting the edging for the second short side and Loki is helping.
