Help! Crocheting Borders
Posted by: somdlady (IP Logged)

I just finished a baby blanket that was done in HDC, chaining 2 and turning. When I start the border (kinda like the foundation row), I have no problem with the top and bottom. It's the sides that are driving me crazy. I don't know where to stick my needle in the stiches to make them right or even? I've been doing this for a couple of years now and I almost just want to crochet granny squares because adding the border is so much easier.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :o)
