I’m enjoying my new circular needles while I knit this Infinity scarf, which is turing out lovely.

This is a call for help to all crafty tumblr peoples out there! My mom had started crocheting me this blanket a few years ago but didn’t get a chance to finish the trimming before she passed away. I’d like to finish it if I can learn how to replicate her trimming. Could any of you tell me or point me to a website or video that shows how? I’d be entirely indebted to you!!!

P.S the ends are also kinda forked like you can see in the picture and is there something I’m supposed to do to like bring the ends together?

I wish I knew more about crochet, but I’m sure one of my followers could help!

The trimming looks like it is double crochet from the pictures (with some of them of the stitches in more than one hole and others per stitch). Double crochet is when you loop the yarn around the hook once, insert hook into hole/stitch, make a stitch through the one hole/stitch, and then pull through all loops.

Hmm, looks like a pattern to me. It looks like a series of stitches. I can’t really tell but there is a pattern. I see single crochets and clusters of double crochet. My suggestion is to go to your local yarn shop. I know they would be more than willing to help. Good luck to you and I am sorry for your loss <3

I know that summer is right around the corner and knitting is not exactly a “summer craft” but this little change, in a traditional rib, got me all excited about picking up needles regardless of the outside temperatures. #craftgeek

agghhhh that’s so cool! :O I need to try this out.

Where can I learn to do this stitch?

ditto!
