This week we will be finishing Strip #4… Should be a breeze!

Don’t forget the other fun, there will be a Grand Prize at the end and weekly prizes too! Details at the bottom of the post!

For sneak peaks, join me on Instagram.. I sometimes show off early pics!


Now for some of the Week 6 details:

This year the project is worked in strips that are in rounds then attached(Mile A Minute). It is a Rectangular Afghan approx. 70″ x 60″ . 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 mine using the self striping yarn and complementing colors, but you can change colors each row or do yours in your own color scheme.

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 after the flowers are joined and you will 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…


Week 1 Stitches:

  • St – Stitch  
  • Sl St – Slip Stitch
