MAKING UP
Lay out squares in rows of 1 1 squares wide and 1 4 rows high; when happy with randomness of colours join squares by sewing them together with either mattress stitch or any other flat seam stitch or, crochet them together from WS; ensure seams are not tight.

Row 2: Ch 2, (dc 1 into next space)
6 times; ch 7; skip 7 spaces; (dc 1 into next space) 7 times.
Row 3: Ch 2, (dc 1 into next space)
6 times; dc 1 into each of the 7 ch; (dc 1 into next dc) 7 times.
Rep rows 2 & 3 until edge fits along one side of afghan plus extra 10.5cm extra to cover side of next length of edge, end with a row 3 of patt. Fasten off.
Rep for other 3 sides.
Join edging evenly along sides of afghan, keeping corners where edging meets neat.
