Each week I will have at least 1 round with a fun new stitch(This week it is the Bead Stitch), 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 just started an Ombre color them this week.. Red heart Ombre in Sweet Treat

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.

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 2 size 36″ x 36″ … 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 2 Stitches:

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

Bead St: Dc in indicated st, *Yo, insert hook around the post of the dc just made, pull up a loop*, repeat *to* 2 more times(7 loops on hook), yo and draw through 6 of the loops on hook, yo and draw through the last 2 loops on hook. ** Each bead st will make 2 sts total… The dc is one st and the last draw through 2 will create the 2nd st. (photo tutorial below)

**The Bead St is a yarn eater.. so make sure if you are changing colors, that you have plenty of the one you choose for this round

Instructions:

*This week we will be once again working on side edging using one of my favorite stitches… Moss Stitch and the Picot stitch… Super easy and quick! We will be finishing both edges

We will be starting with working around the end of edging rows… I have some pics to follow to help with placement.

With Right side facing, join color F with a sl st in the last stitch of color F picot row(see pic below) where the Picot is closest to the edge.

Row 156: Ch 1, working in the end of border rows, work 1 sc in each color F, A, B, C & D(5sc total), in last color end of row(color E) work 3 picot sts and 1 more sc in same st(this finishes the corner), *sc in next ch 1 sp, ch 1, sk st*, repeat *to* across to the last st, (sc, 3 picot sts) in the last st, turn to work on the end of row border, 1 sc in each of the next 5 colors D, C, B, A, F, sl st in the next st and finish off. = 2- 3picot groups, 121 sc & 104 ch 1 sps.

Turn to work on the opposite boarder with right side facing.

Join Color F in the side row edge in color F(see pic)

Row 157: Repeat row 156 ending with a sl st in the base of the last picot from the row, similar to how you joined in row 156.

Just block the project into shape and you are all set!!!
