(Shown in Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn! Turquoise, Brown, White & Burnt Pumpkin)
I have made quiet a few corner to corner blankets and have used a variety of edges for them, I usually just do whatever I please without writing it down but thought maybe I'll start sharing here because I often get asked how I created my edge.
For my corner to corner blanket shown I used a size I Hook and this free pattern: Red Heart Corner to Corner Throw.
Thanks for stopping by and reading!
