Mystery Lapghan Complete

For the past 12 weeks I have been part of a mystery crochet along, I finished my Lapghan yesterday and love the way all of the mystery squares work together to make this lapghan. This has been a fun project and I enjoyed posting my finished squares on Facebook.

After finishing the 36 squares, I decided to use black to join the squares together and for the  lapghan border. I love that all the squares are different patterns, so in order to make the squares stand out, I decided to do a simple border.


Border Pattern
For the first row I did an even amount of sc on each side of the lapghan and worked (sc, ch 1, sc) in the corner st, the sc base row helps to even out the sides for the rest of the border. 
Each row after the first row is done all around the lapghan.
Row 2:  Ch 3, *dc in the next st and in each stitch to the corner ch-1 space, work (dc, ch 1, dc) in each corner ch-1 space, dc in the next st and in each stitch; repeat from * around, join
Row 3:  Ch 1 sc in the same st as join, ch 1, *skip next st,  sc in the next st, ch 1 : Repeat from* to the corner st, (sc, ch 1, sc, ch 1) in the corner ch-1 space: repeat from * around, join
Row 4 and 5: Ch 1, sc in the same st as join, ch 1, * (sc in the next ch-1 space, ch 1), to the corner ch-1 space, (sc, ch 1, sc, ch 1) in the corner ch-1 space, (sc in the next ch-1 space, ch 1), to the corner; Repeat from * around, join.
*Note: for rows 3, 4, and 5, I used the yarn that was left over from making the squares to add a little color to the border.
Row 6: Ch 3, *(dc in the next sc, dc in the next ch-1 space) to the corner ch-1 space, (dc, ch-1. dc) in the corner ch-1 space, (dc in the next sc, dc in the  next ch-1 space) to the corner ch-1 space; Repeat from * around, join
Row 7:Ch 1, *sc in the next st and in each st to the corner, (sc, ch 1, sc) in the corner ch-1 space, sc in the next st and in each st to the corner; Repeat from* around, join, finish off, weave in ends.
