There are more than a few options to attach knitted borders including whip stitch, knitting on as you go, and crochet. I want this to be relatively sturdy but also stretchy so I went with the crochet option. Essentially all I'm doing is lining things up as best I can and doing a single crochet stitch through both layers.
I'm not sure I'll have enough gray to finish the leaves and attach the border so I went into my stash and found a pretty variegated purple to use instead. I imagined that I would just get a punchy purple line of crochet v's along the back edge, but I didn't also realize that I would see it on the front a bit. I actually quite like the effect, it just means I have to make sure I try to space out my stitches as evenly as I can as I go along. I just have 15 more leaves to go!
