DaisyZag ... done and border
The zigzag daisy is finished! It came out pretty square, which wasn't planned, but I suppose I should have realized! I am quite sure that the hospital will find a happy recipient.
I try to make each one even just a slight bit different. First, because I want each to be unique in its construction as well as its design. Second, I don't want to get bored doing the same old thing!
You can find instructions on how I bordered and assembled this afghan in "ripple" style here. The border is simple:
Round 1: Join black yarn with slip stitch in the 2nd dc of any outer corner, sc in each stitch across until the 2nd st before the next valley. Do a sc dec across the next two sts (insert hook in next st, yo, pull through, insert hook in next st, yo, pull through, yo and pull through all loops on hook). Sc dec in next st as well. sc in each dc across to next outer corner and do 3sc in 2nd dc of the corner grouping. Continue around in this fashion until you are back to the corner you began with and do 2 more sc in beginning st.
Round 2: ch2 , do rhc in same st (yo insert hook in st indicated yo, pull through, yo, pull through all loops on hook), ch1, YOUR NEXT STITCH IS IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION YOU USUALLY WORK IN. If you are right-handed, you will be working CLOCKWISE. If you work left-handed, you will be working COUNTER CLOCKWISE. sk next st in the reversed direction, and then do a rhdc into the next st in the reversed direction... Keep working in this fashion: *rhdc, ch1, sk next st* When you get to an outer corner, you will need to do a rhdc, ch1, rhdc in same st. When you get to an inside corner, do not do anything differently.
