CAL - Week 3

Hi friends!
And welcome back to the Amethystry CAL! Week 3 and after this one we're just one step away from being done!
This week is a super super quick one. All we're going to do is put a boarder around the squares we've made using a simple single crochet. That's it! But the last week is going to be a looooong one, just because of the time it takes to actually go the length of the blanket. I'm thinking I'm going to have to use my 0 editing skills for the next one...yay...
But how exciting! We nearly have a full blanket finished!!!
Things you will need this week:
- 5mm Crochet Hook
- White Yarn
- Stitch Markers (optional but recommended for this one)
- Scissors
- Yarn needle
Just to note before we get started:
Honestly, this week is optional. I do the white boarder around the squares because I personally think it makes the finished thing look better. If you're completely fed up with looking at squares right now, that's fair, I get it, you can do whatever you feel suits you best, but I do think the white boarder on the squares just brings it together a little better :)
Here we go!
Difficulty: SUPER EASY
Stitches and terms we will use: 
- sk: slip knot 
st/sts: stitch/stitches
- sl st: slip st
- ch: chain
- sc: single crochet
Pattern Notes:
- Written in American terminology 

This is probably the trickiest part of this week and honestly, I'm struggling on how to explain it properly so please use the video above the help!
Leaving a tail long enough to weave in, make a slip knot onto your hook.
Attach this to a corner space of your square by making a sl st into the space. Don't chain, work straight from this position

Round 1(the only round!):

- into the corner space make 2 sc, ch 2, 2 sc - this makes your first corner
- sc into the tops of all the stitches across one side of your square
- when you reach the corner, repeat the first step - 2 sc, ch 2, 2 sc
continue this was around the square until you reach the place you connected your white yarn and sl st into the top of the first st you made. [116sts]
That's it, that's all of it. You just have to do this on each square.
This boarder really helps make the colour pop already and will make the attaching process look a little better curated. I'm so excited for the next part, putting it all together!! 
Don't forget to share your progress on Instagram and tag me because I love to see it and use the hashtag #amethystrycal !!!
