This week of our Whimsical Autumn Afghan we are starting our border!! Week 9 is made using fun, textural stitching and goes quickly! I’m so excited to be so close to the final afghan and seeing all of yours!!

If you are looking for past week’s directions.. Just click on the Crochet With Me tab at the top of the page…

The first 7 weeks we made 35 squares in 4 styles and all sorts of color combinations using 4 colors… Week 8 we joined our squares.. This week we will do the first 4 rounds of our border and then last but not least, Week 10 will be finishing the border, blocking it all into shape and making sure all of the ends are secured.

Because of the delay the prior weeks, I am extending the posts out from the original plan by a week,,, hopefully this will give you time to finish by Thanksgiving! I will be moving the Grand-prize Amazon $50 giveaway date out to December 7th instead of November 30th so everyone has time to finish.
