Base Border For C2C Blankets – Pattern Description
I always recommend you crochet a base border around your blankets before starting on any border and today I am sharing with you one that was designed specifically for corner-to-corner blankets.
This Base Border For C2C Blankets is created with simple single crochet stitches made in between the stitch posts of the c2c tiles, it is simple and quick to make and provides a base for any kind of border you want to make for your blanket.
