It’s time to build your crochet chops. While seasonal projects are all fine and dandy, it’s the general use, staple techniques that make or break the crocheter.

Therefore, it’s always a good idea to learn and practice useful stitches. To this end, here are some borders for C2C blanket projects. C2C is a wonderful way of building up large projects with geometric designs. Overall, even though you do this manually it’s almost a digital way of crocheting. However, these projects need a great finish to be truly complete. This is best done by a great border. Better still, these edges can also match other projects as well, giving you possibility to versify your projects.
