Making a version of log cabin (called modern baby blanket). It's all garter stitch. Pattern did not have instructions for border.

If you have made any log cabin blanket and have a border that worked nicely for it, would appreciate any suggestions, etc. Thanks.

I would do a moss stitch border,no curling and would go with the garter stitch really well.

Thanks, REnee. Just pick up stitches along border? Guess I'd have to do each side separately?

I agree about the moss/seed stitch border.
I would pickup stitches on the 2 longest sides first and do the border. Then do the 2 shorter sides (which now include the borders you added)
You could do an applied I-cord (instead of the seed stitch flat border) all the way around if you don't want to add much width/length

If you crochet, you could just do a row of sc all the way around. Does it really need a border? Garter stitch shouldn't curl. Or maybe you just think it looks unfinished without a border?

Those directions say to work border according to directions on page 75.

azingrace: yes, but they did not publish page 75; if anyone has it, would love a copy
jmf6406: yes, I was thinking of possibly that.
knit4es: thanks for specifics. Is there a way to do an icord around entire blanket rather than making icord separately and then sewing on?
Renee: love idea of moss stitch
thank you all

Do a browser search for attached I-cord.... here's one https://blog.loveknitting.com/the-attached-i-cord/

knit4ES: this is great! thank you for the link. I will try it on a swatch first since I've never done this before.
Great help from all my KP'ers!

Very Pink made a tutorial to go with her log cabin blanket.

If you decide to do an attached icord, I suggest to watch a video from knit picks, where the lady explains how to knit the corners so they will not flip. I like the icord and have used on a couple of afghans. It is a bit of time but you will be pleased with the end result.

Crab stitch is my favorite border.

I was going to say crab stitch also.

I have actually made this (with obvious alterations to suit my needs, with a border) If you would like a picture, please let me know.
