I have been working on the second round of crochet rehab for fifty-five crochet remnants, and while the end isn’t quite in sight, the ends definitely are, as can be seen here:
I weave in all of the ends after I complete a round of rehab, but in this particular “round” of rehab, some remnants are picking up a lot more ends than they would if I had decided on another approach to finishing the square, but I find that when all is said and done, I like the tilt of a center square that has been surrounded by triangles:
It is an approach I discovered when I made what I came to call “the afghan that eluded me,” a project I pursued on and off for thirteen years before I finally finished it:
I learned a lot along the way, and one of the things I learned is that by actually or visually turning a square forty-five degrees, you can create a lot of interest without doing a whole lot of extra work.
Unless, of course, you create that forty-five-degree turn by adding four triangles, in which case, you add eight ends to be woven in, but all in all, I think the effect is worth the effort:
I am particularly mindful of the fact that the squares I make for Project Amigo will be most likely end up on someone’s bed, and I want the square to be as attractive and interesting as I can make it, and if that means there will be a few extra ends to weave in, I will do exactly that, one end at a time.
