Borderline shows off your favorite gradient yarns in an attractive wide-stripe pattern. It is knit from the top down in a half-circle shape with eye-catching fringe along the border.
Knitters, please be aware that the fringe is created with a crochet hook. But it is a very simple 1 row pattern, and I include a video tutorial link in the pattern that shows how to do it, so if you’ve ever wanted to give crochet a try, this would be a great pattern to begin with! Crochet instructions are written in US terms.
