summer blanket – episode 6

Img_3235

it does not go smoothly, the summer blanket project. the material i work with is not the most flexible yarn so i wanted an extra row of chains between the squares: the edge around the squares and a row of chains to attach the squares together. that would give some flexibility. the problem is that i quickly find things have a messy look and that is what happened. i’ve tried different ways to crochet the 2nd row of chains but i was not happy with it: too frilly, too messy or there was a hard ridge. i don’t know you can see on the photo’s what i mean?
