Finishing an Oddball Baby Blanket
FINISHING AN ODDBALL BABY BLANKET

If you are the LAST knitter on an Oddball Baby Blanket, you will knit your section as described in the post above (read here). After you complete 4 inches of knitting, you will need to finish the blanket by knitting every stitch for 3 to 6 rows. This will create a nice garter stitch border at the end of the blanket.

Then, you will VERY LOOSELY bind off the stitches.
(It helps to use a very large needle when binding off.)

If you know how to crochet, you can add a pretty crochet border around the blanket. If you don't know how to crochet, just contact your region leader, and they will find someone to do the border.

When the blanket is finished, contact your region leader, so they can make arrangements to deliver the blanket to charity.

You're done!
