Deutsch im Stricktagebuch vom 23. August 2012.

Molli nudged me to finish my blanket which was already started in January.
I gathered all kinds of Shetland yarns and leftovers of Evilla, Kauni and Aade yarns, over 30 color shades. From the leftovers of the leftovers I worked a knitted rim which was sewn through the stitches and covers the selvedge stitches nicely. And I really used up every meter of yarn. So there is no front- or backside

Want to guess how many stitches I had at the widest part of the border? Fortunately I’m possessing a 3m-circular-knitting-needle from Addi which enabled an easy handling of all the stitches.

It’s one of the nicest patterns I ever crocheted. Due to the yarn I used a much smaller needle as suggested and cast on more stitches.

The pattern is absolutely symmetric. Whether you look at the front or back or turn the pattern 180 degrees: it looks alike from every perspective.
