First let me say I am so proud of my daughter, she just knit her first afghan. It is for the baby she is expecting in February. Now the problem, it is HUGE. She brought it to me to cast off, and I laughed,and asked who it was for. Ooops not the right response. So I told her I could fix it. I thought I would fold it in half, and put an edge on it, I would like to pick up the edges and knit around. However I can't seem to find any directions to do this. All the knit edges I find seem to be knit seperately and sewn on. Does anyone have any ideas? Or should I just crochet a pretty edge on it? BTW It's made from a fairly fluffy yarn. Thanks for helping me rescue My daughters first "real" knitting. Jerri

Hi, Grannma to be! :waving:

Here's a neat video on knitted on I-cord.

It looks really nice as an edging for an afghan, and there's also a video on there for turning the corner with the I-cord.

Hope this helps and congrats to you and your daughter!

Happy new year!
