Border on pinwheel baby blanket?
I have just started the pinwheel baby blanket from knitlist...
...and I'm not sure how to do the border. Probably some sort of garter stitch for a few rows, to make it lay flat...but do I keep increasing as I go, so it doesn't pucker? (I wouldn't want to do YOs then, would i?)

Any thoughts, much appreciated!

Happy Black Friday! (of which I will spend zero time shopping, and a whole lot knitting...)

If you do a garter stitch border, yes, you'll need to keep doing increases. I would probably just keep doing the YO's, but I don't think that the increase method will really matter much.

when I did this blanket, I did bunch of little crochet loops around the edge (dc1, ch3 around), but I've also seen a lot of people do an applied i-cord for the border and some also with a knit ruffle.
