Step 3: Finishing Up
Strip Border With white color and right side facing you. Single crochet 22 single crochets evenly across. Chain one, turn. Single crochet across again. Do the same for the other end of strip. Now with Right side facing you, single crochet 3 rows around strip, making sure you turn strip every row. Also remember to do 3 single crochets in every corner. And with buff color do one row around strip.
Make four of these strips. Sewing strips together. With Right sides facing each other, slip stitch in back loops only. I like to do this because it gives it a nice ridge. When all strips are sewn together, with right side facing you single crochet one row of buff color.
Then, with wrong side facing you , single crochet with the white color for three rows. Turning the project for every row and single crocheting 3 single crochets in every corner. For the last row, reverse single crochet around once. This gives the edge a beautiful rope look. Enjoy this one!!!
This project works up quick after you do a few rows and get the hang of it!!! You can use any color combination that you like. I also did this one with Black, white and gray...it was really rich looking.
