I used this border for the Lunar Crossings Poncho HERE.

Materials

Red Heart “With Love” in color papaya was used in the sample.

Since this is a border, you would use whatever hook and yarn works with your project.

In order to make the initial base for the border shown here, I used the first five rounds of the Lunar Crossings Square Blanket HERE.
