Hooked on borders

Finally i have filled the gaps to be able to hook on the border. First i crocheted a round of slipstitches, crochet and double crochet around the body in order to get a straight line in the same color as the border. I attached the border with chainstitches through both the loops of border and body.



I wasn't satified with the outer edge of the border, it was all curling up. and wouldn't lie flat. The solution for this problem was to make a crabstitchround, picking up the backloops of two stitches at once. Done in a different yarn, this adds a little extra pleasing touch.
