EDG­ING

Worked in short rows around en­tire blan­ket.

Side 1 Work along short end.

Row 1: [Ch 3, dc in 3rd ch from hook] 4 times. Turn. (4 ch-3 lps)

Row 2: Shell (see Spe­cial Stitches) in cen­ter of each ch-3 sp across. [Sl st in next st or in end of next row at blan­ket edge] twice. Turn. (4 shells)

Row 3: Work­ing in back lps only, shell in cen­ter hdc of each shell across. Turn.

Row 4: Work­ing in back lps only, shell in cen­ter hdc of each shell across. [Sl st in next st or in end of next row at blan­ket edge] twice. Turn.

Rem rows: Rep rows 3 and 4 un­til you have edged the en­tire first side of the Throw. End with a rep of row 3.

Side 2 Work along long edge ex­actly as per side 1, beg with row 1. This will cre­ate the height for the edg­ing along side 2 of the blan­ket and will also cre­ate the first cor­ner of the blan­ket. As you work the first few edg­ing rows along the edg­ing of Side 1, place your join­ing sl sts as fol­lows: [Sk 1 st, sl st in next st] twice. When the cor­ner rows are fin­ished and you are again join­ing di­rectly to the edge of side 2 of the blan­ket, work the join­ing sl sts again ex­actly as writ­ten for side 1.

Side 3 Rep Side 2 along next short edge.

Side 4 Rep Side 2 along next long edge. To com­plete the 4th cor­ner, con­tinue to work the edg­ing rows along the op­po­site side of row 1 of the edg­ing (Side 1), plac­ing your join­ing sl sts as fol­lows: [Sk 1 ch, sl st in next ch] twice. End with a rep of row 3 to com­plete the 4th cor­ner. Fas­ten off.

C!

Palisade is a word of French-ori­gin re­fer­ring to a fence or wall, which re­sem­bles this throw’s knit-look ribbed tex­ture. The afghan is re­versible and fea­tures a lacy edg­ing for a touch of el­e­gance.
