Hello Spring – Part 6

Hello Spring Cal comes to an end now, only the border to be done.

If you follow my blog you already know that I made a wall hanging working over 5 pattern repeats. When it came to the border I finally had to decide how I wanted to hang it up.
I have seen quite complicated looking constructions for hanging wall decorations but I had no idea how to make them. At first I thought about attaching loops to it like you would for a quilt but there too I was unsure how best to attach them. Then I had another idea, a very easy one:

I worked the border as normal. In the final joining round I left a piece open on the upper side edges. On the last 7 stitches on both upper sides I worked the slip stitches only on the front layer without joining the two layers. The corner is worked as normal.
This has created a kind of tunnel through which you can push a rod. It works perfectly!

Tomorrow I will write a short summary with all details of my test. Stay tuned!
