Topic: Big granny square issue - lost the end  (Read 951 times)

So, I'm making some blankets as presents this year - so far they're both giant granny squares. I finished one that I began as a rectangle (with a long row at the beginning), and I really liked the shape of it at the end.
I started the second one as more of a square, so I added some rows on two of the sides later, to make it a bit more rectangular. Only, I somehow lost the end of the round in the process! Now I've been continuing along in the round, but I have no idea how to end smoothly.
Any suggestions for getting the end back/starting a new round again or somehow ending smoothly?
Thank you in advance!

Did you begin and end each new row in the corner?  If you did, count the number of rows on each side, and you should be able to tell where your original stopping point was.  Mark it with a safety pin so you don't lose it again. Smiley  Once you get back around to that spot you should be able to end the row just like any other using your pattern's directions.  I hope this helps!

There's one in every family, and I'm an only child.

Unfortunately I didn't use a pattern Sad It somehow didn't begin in the corner, either? Maybe I've been doing something wonky all along. Each row was ending with a slip stitch (and then a few more to get to the chain space), and then ch3 to begin the next row. I ended up just shortening my stitches until it was a slip stitch and just chaining up to start a new row. It looked obviously wrong when I did it, but the yarn is boucle and it's so big at this point that I don't think it can be seen!
