I’ve so enjoyed blending these colours.
Some of the edges on thn early strips weren’t really very good and when I began to sew the strips together it became a little obvious. This meant you could see the white cushion pad, so I used an old sheet which recently ripped to create a new coloured inner.
The sheet was the better part of twenty years old so it certainly didn’t owe us anything. There’s some green in the wools so it was a happy coincidence.
It’s 20 square inches of happiness 🙂
To combine the strips I began by crocheting them together, it didn’t work for me so I used blanket stitch, that didn’t work and I eventually settled on a simple whip stitch.
Seams inside or seams outside? Seams outside was my decision as it gives extra texture. I chose a bright-ish orange to stitch the strips together just because I’ve a lot of that colour but it has worked well.
We all seem to prefer the first side I showed you with more obvious differences in the width of the strips. I’m so happy when I look at it that I’ve started a smaller one to keep it company. There’ll still be left overs.
