I was recently asked...


Crows as a whole
how I did the crochet border.  It's not hard, but I thought I would give you a more close-up view of it.
oh lookie there....my siggy....my zodiac sign symbol...my initials in my maiden daze..

 a little close-up of the bg crows....same size yarn I used on the border...just did a satin stitch for these.
I did a blanket stitch all around the outside edge, which I left raw, BTW.   I tried not to make the stitches even in spacing or length, but I didn't stray to far outside either of the invisible lines.
After I did all that, I pulled out a crochet hook, the one that suited the yarn the best, and just started a single crochet stitch in the top part of the blanket stitch, that I found an illustration for.  I think I did 2 single crochets in each until I got to the corner where I think I did 3 or 5....it has to be an un-even number or the crochet police will hook you down.
