Here's the pic of my sample "square". It's about 9" x 6", hardly a square! Not sure what I did wrong, but I can hardly imagine a blanket made like that.

That bind off edge looks pretty bad because I was trying different bind offs to see what one I preferred.

I'm also trying to think of a different border idea. I don't necessarily want to do the seed stitch border with both yarns. I though about jumping right into the double knit part, but that leaves a rather unattractive edge. I also tried picking up stitches and that didn't look good either. The other thing I thought about was doing seed stitch in a solid color. That would look great on one side, but not so much the other. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions on this?
