Week 3 Self Striping Neutral Theme

Each week I will have at least 1 round with a fun new stitch(This week it is the beginning of a fun shell design), This is great for learning new stitches and making your afghan whimsical… The main base is a Granny Stitch… So easy!


Now for some of the details:

This year the project is worked in the round, turning over each round. 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…

Here is the picture of the ombre at week 2

Let’s get the stitching started!



Tips:

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 3 size 43″ x 43″ … 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 3 Stitches:

Ch – Chain  St – Stitch  Sl St – Slip Stitch  Sp – Space  Sc – Single Crochet  Dc – Double Crochet
