This morning I was frantically trying to get the border completed on the Call the Midwife Baby Blanket that I crocheted and shared with you yesterday.
Unfortunately, it’s still not completely done but I do have enough of it finished to show it off.
I’m in love with this border pattern!
The Call the Midwife Inspired Pattern offers the suggested stitches for completing the afghan but they leave it up to you to decide how many and on some rows, which type of stitch. The following shares the stitches I used on mine in US terms.
My Call The Midwife Inspired Blanket Border Pattern
Row 1. I went all the way around the blanket with a half double crochet stitch.
Row 2. I went all the way around with a double crochet stitch.
Row 3. I used a V stitch (DC, CH, DC) in every 3rd double crochet stitch from Row 2.
Row 4. I used a V stitch in every V stitch from Row 3.
Row 5. I used a Shell stitch (7 DC in the same V) in first V stitch followed by a single crochet stitch in the next V stitch, repeated all the way around.

This funny crochet shirt describes me perfectly this morning as I was trying to finish my beautiful border.
I don’t know why but at the end of a project, I always get antsy to see how it’s going to turn out.
I’m really happy with the border on this blanket and I will definitely use this one again.
Once it’s completely done and I finish weaving in the ends this pretty blanket will be posted in my Etsy shop along with a bunch of other items I’ve been neglecting to list lately.
Anyway, until we meet again, here’s wishing you a frog-free crochet day!
PS… Do you have a favorite border? I think the one I shared above is my new favorite! If you have a favorite go-to border, share the stitches or the name of it in the comments. I love hearing from my readers.
