Week 7 in Self Striping Color Theme

Now for some of the details:

This year the project is worked in the round, turning over each round(unless indicated differently). It is a Square Afghan approx. 65″ x 65″ . You can make it in your choice of worsted weight yarn #4. Stashbuster, Ombre’, Self- Striping or even a color theme… At least 2 colors are recommended. I am making 3, Caron Cake Self- Striping, a Stashbuster… And I and now making a Red heart Ombre in Sweet Treat afghan… Trying to catch up…

Finally Caught Up To Week 3 in Ombre Color Theme

Let’s get the stitching started!


If using self striping yarn, it will change sometimes in the middle of the row… This is ok

If changing colors,(not using self striping or ombre’) The instructions don’t say to when to change color due to the use of self-striping/ombre being used, but you will change every row and join in the space you joined in unless otherwise stated using a slip stitch.

Work your ends in with a yarn needle as you go…This makes it much easier in the end…

WS vs RS Odd rows are the right side(RS) and Even rows are the wrong side(WS)

Week 7 size 60″ x 60″ … Different yarns and tensions may make your slightly different.. Don’t let it be to much of a variance or your project will be way to big or way to small

Week 7 Stitches:

Ch – Chain   St – Stitch   Sl St – Slip Stitch   Sp – Space   

Sc–Single Crochet   Hdc-Half Double Crochet

Dc – Double Crochet
