Hello!
I am working on a blanket as one of my first projects and I want to add a border to the blanket to make it a bit more interesting and to make the lopsidedness not so obvious. I don't want to do a knitted border though if I don't have to. Does anybody have any ideas as to how I would attach a thick ribbon maybe or some fabric around the blanket? Hotglue? Thanks!

well mostly with knitted fabric you can mostly hand or machine sew the other piece, like...whats that word..stippleing? something that starts with a "S", well that technique is sometimes used for adding holes in your sweater for the arms after when you knit a tube and just sewing that part in. going back to your question, hot glue is ok but sewing it is ok as well.

You could thread the ribbon through the stiches; that always looks cool.

There is this amazing No-Sew Glue (not sure if that's the brand name...).  It's a clear glue that is specifically made for fabrics, so it doesn't dry as stiff as hot glue.  I know they have it at Michaels, and probably most other craft stores.  You'll never sew again!

Hmm I guess I'm slightly confused as to how you would sew like cloth fabric to knitted fabric Huh but it sounds complex and I'm just a beginner so maybe I won't go there. But thanks a lot for your reply!

The No-Sew Glue sounds fantastic!! I'll definitely look for that next time I take a trip to Michael's. Also the ribbon idea sounds really neat too, Thanks so much!
