Hi Guys, happy Sunday!

I really liked the middle bit of our wavy square from the other week, and so I decided to do a different border on the same middle. And thus, the border square was born! I think this is another square you could make a full blanket out of, as I really love all the colours.

Anyway,

Let’s get crocheting!
