|All ready to go to Cambridge!|
I created simple borders because this is for a new baby so no fringing or eyelets, just picking up the stitches along the top and bottom edges and then the sides. I say just, but it is still a bit of a fiddle, some of those stitches did not want to be picked up!
To get the top and bottom straight I knitted half fishies but still ended up with a wavy edge, however, as the stripes go towards the edge they get straighter, the wonders of wool! I think natural wool would be even more giving, this was inexpensive baby wool.
