The Polka Dot Border works well on afghans, bowls and baskets, ponchos… anywhere you can add an edging! The set up row doesn’t always require the perfect stitch count – skip just 1 stitch for the last repeat, if needed to make it work!
And play with color! In the photo above, I used the same color for the outside of the project, the setup row, and the background row, so the dots and final round really pop. But then in the video, I used different colors throughout – also super fun!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial video, and that it’s given you a little bit of inspiration on how you can add the Polka Dot Border to your next project!
