Finishing

Steam block the squares gently. Join squares together using MC: Lay the squares flat on the table with the WS facing and join them together stitch by stitch by sewing them together or by crocheting them together using crocheted slip stitch. Darn in ends.

When all the pieces are joined together, finish the edge in the following way: Using MC and smaller hook, dc round all four sides, join by 1ss. Next, work a picot edging in the following way: 4ch, 1ss in second of 4ch, 2dc, *3ch, 1ss in first of 3ch, 2ds*, repeat *-* round all four sides.

Steam block the throw very gently or lay it to measures on a flat surface, wet with a spray bottle and let dry.
