Tutti Frutti Border Part 1

TUTTI FRUTTI BORDER PART 1

The Tutti Frutti Border Part 1 is part of my Mystery Make Along.

Join me in the magical, surprise crochet journey of a mystery make along (MMAL) which is a similar to a crochet along (CAL).  The difference is that you do not know what the end project will look like.  The Tutti Frutti Baby Blanket is made up of small, fun to make squares, that will then be joined together and with a border added. Tutti Frutti Border Part 1 is the first section of the border.

“Share the art within you with the ones you love…”

PLEASE NOTE:

I have had to change my main colour from green to blue because I am not able to purchase more of the green yarn due to my county being in lock down and so I am using up what I have in my stash.  You can continue using the same colours or you can add colours.
