Calleigh's Clips Baby Blanket Mini C2C Graphgan - Joining the Squares, Border and Finishing

I haven't had a chance to "write" out the Joining the squares and Final Border Details! Life is just a little busy and crazy right now! I took a part time job and I'm learning to adjust with less time to crochet. I sure wished I'd wrote it out earlier when I did it LOL. Someday I'll learn that is the easiest way to write a pattern but I got excited to finish. 

I will add to this very soon. Hopefully by the end of the week if not by the end of March! 
I do however have the videos loaded up on youtube so you can follow along on how to finish up! I know of a few of you are patiently waiting so I hope this helps in the mean time! I'll add more to this post very soon!

Calleigh's Clips Baby Blanket Mini C2C Graphgan - Edging Squares

Who's ready to Edge all those squares from 
the mini c2c graphgan so we can join them?

I found explaining the edging typed out a little confusing so I was sure to make a video showing you exactly what I did, along with the typed out instructions. Just don't over think it!


Join yarn in any corner, (sc, ch 2, sc) [First corner made],

sc in the next Square space, 

*(ch 2, sc in next square space) Repeat from * 12 more times), sc in next square space, 
(sc, ch 2, sc ) [2nd corner made]

(15 ch-2 spaces including both corners) 
Pattern continued below notes:

NOTES: Continue pattern around each side making sure you have 15 ch-2 spaces along each edge. See Video for further explanation. 

sc in the next Square space, *(ch 2, sc in next square space) Repeat from * 12 more times), sc in next square space,(sc, ch 2, sc ) [3nd corner made]

sc in the next Square space,*(ch 2, sc in next square space) Repeat from * 12 more times), sc in next square space, join with a sl st to 1st sc. Fasten off and Weave in Ends. 

If you have any questions, please watch the video 1st and then feel free to email me. We'll have joining instructions later in the week. 

Calleigh's Clips Baby Blanket Mini C2C Graphgan - Square 9 -Bumble Bee

Today is the day! We are on our last square! While this little bumble bee wasn't really part of the logo I thought he fit in rather well. Isn't he just a cute little buggy. 

I've just added the video and better written instructions for the square edging (you can find that at the end of the this pattern) 

Be sure to add your projects in Ravelry and feel free to share on social media. I'd love to see your squares! 

Maybe one day I'll create more graphs with some other 
critters or creatures. 
What would you like to see?
