Interesting! Very beautiful. The way the stripes are placed really accentuates the chest, but that might not be a bad thing if it's what you're going for.  Wink

I wasn't thinking of doing a fringe, but the lacy border idea is good! I'd use less yarn and get more yardage.

My initial thought was to have a solid border of like four inches on each side, but it might make more sense to do something lacy.
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Advice on how to finish this rug? on: August 18, 2013 08:52:25 AM
I made a living room rug to sit under my coffee table and I'm not sure how to finish it. I made up the pattern as I went, knitting three strands together, using up all my scraps of blue to give it a sort of gradient look.

(Excuse the crafting/cleaning/redecorating mess...)

It's clearly too short, but I've basically run out of blue and am close to running out of white. (With what I have left, I could probably add...three inches to the end?

So here are my questions - how much longer do you think I should make it? Considering that I don't want to spend more money on yarn for it and use up the stuff I have, could I make a wide border around the entire thing in a different color? I have tons of off white, lots of teal, and then a couple balls each of green, brown, and purple. (And this funky grey texture that could probably give me two rows around the whole thing.

To give you an idea of the color palette I'm working with, I'm currently redecorating, planning on adding curtains with some yellow in them, and keeping the furniture black and brown, with some new accent pillows.

I just noticed the octopus headpiece.... I am. In love.

This is great! I made my own striped blanket a few months ago, and definitely agree with the "lumpiness" factor.

Thanks to both of you!

This project ended up being a good excuse to marathon a lot of TV shows.  Smiley

It took me about two to three months of solid work, but I finally completed my giant crocheted blanket! It's part of my effort to redecorate my room, going for more classic black and white themes.

The blanket is approximately 7'x7', and has sixteen alternating black and white stripes. Each stripe has seventeen rows of SC, and each row took 10 minutes to complete from beginning to end.

I lost some progress on this about halfway through, as my first six rows were pulled too tight, resulting in narrower stripes and an uneven edge. I had to undo several weeks worth of work, but I'm glad I did. The end result was just a bit too narrow for my bed (which is somewhere between a full and a twin - it's one of those oddly-shaped Ikea futons) so I had to add a few extra inches of border on each side.

It took six pounds of yarn to complete this, and ended up being a much more expensive undertaking than I predicted, but I would totally do this again.

This is wonderful! I'm always at a loss of how to make a good collage, and this is very inspiring.

Thank you so much! That clears it up. I don't think I was doing YO with the SSK, which was likely my problem.
