Welcome to part 13 of the Kaleidoscope CAL – the final part!
The last thing to do with any blanket is the border. A good border sets off a blanket nicely, and after all the work you’ve put into this blanket, it deserves to be well-finished.
This border is fairly simple, with no colourwork – just lots of V stitches to create an open, lacy edge that really brings the whole blanket together.
The pdf download for this part includes details of the colours and stitches you’ll be using for this section.
You can download part 13 from Ravelry here.
It’s available in English (US and UK terms), Dutch, French and Persian (German to follow). There are two charts to download this time; one shows all the parts of the border together, and one splits them up into separate sections. The video tutorials are available here on Trisha McKibbon’s Youtube channel.
Don’t forget that the best and fastest place to get help and advice with the CAL is the Facebook group, which you can find here.
I’m sure you’ll join me in saying a massive thank you to everyone who’s helped out over the course of this CAL. All of the translaters (Simone Ypkemeule, Anna Maas, Johanne Rousseau, Maryam Zargar, Marian Zakhary and Katharina Brandes), Cynthia Welch on charts and Trisha McKibbon on videos – all have volunteered their time to us freely, and I’m so grateful to all of them.
And, of course, thank you to Kathy Patching and Jill Coker, the best testers and moderators I could wish for. Many of you have had questions answered and worries soothed by Kathy and Jill, over in the Facebook group, and I can honestly say I wouldn’t have been able to do this without them.
I am so proud of everyone who has tackled this blanket, both the people who have stuck with it since the beginning of the CAL and those who are only just starting out with their blankets. It’s been challenging for so many of you, but your finished blankets are all stunning, each and every one of them.
Enjoy the border, and don’t forget to keep posting pictures of your blankets!
