Row 54: ch1, sc FLO in same st, sc FLO in each st across, fasten off 1st panel – 37 sts

After finishing the 2nd panel do not fasten off CC, continue to blocking and joining.

 Blocking

This part is entirely optional, but it’s absolutely worth the trouble! Yes, I know it’s boring, but … I would highly recommend doing it… Ideally, you should block the two panels before joining. You can use any method you are familiar with: washing, steam or spray. Pin the panels gently into shape, making sure that both parts are equally stretched (of same length and width) and let them dry completely.

Join

Place two panels with WS facing each other and match up the stitches of their last rows. On the RS join pieces with sl st through inner loops (through the back loops of the stitches of panel closer to you, and the front loops of the stitches of the panel further away from you). Fasten off.

AND THE FINAL TOUCH

Weave in all the ends.

Optional: Work sc edging around the edges of the CC part in the middle, placing 3 sc sts per 2 dc sts. This will make the edges more even and texture shown.

Add fringe. The one on the original design is about 13 cm (little over 5 in). That means you need to cut the fringe about 27 cm (11 in). Each fringe was made of 3 pieces of yarn held together.
