Crochet Cot Quilt

The yarn was purchased on sale, heavily discounted and only eight balls to be had. My original plan was to use it with other yarns either as a striped rug or in alternating squares with a colour yet to be determined or purchased.

thought I would start by crocheting the white blocks and used my favourite pattern. Progress was good. Thirty blocks were laid on the floor, they formed a blanket that was cot sized and the decision was made. I have always loved classic white/off white linen, rugs and throws so decided no more blocks, no alternating colour and to use the remaining yarn to crochet a border. Whilst I have no need for a cot quilt I am sure a home will be found.

The wide border adds a firm edge

And the 'bobble' picot edge is slight variation on my usual finish.
