Edging baby blankets is a labor of love. I made baby blankets for my children, grandchildren and now for our great-granchildren. The main problem was how to finish off that last row. Last year I found the Reverse Single Stitch ... aka Crab Stitch... in an online tutorial. It makes a wonderful cording on the outside of edging... or anything else you would want to put it on.
The blanket is finished.. ;)
