St Patricks Day is a special day in our family…  Today is my Grandmother Beatrice Ryan’s Birthday…  I always loved that she was Irish and born on St Patricks day!!! You all may be wearing something green today for St Patricks Day,,, But what will you be crocheting today??

I will be finishing up the last week’s design for our Crochet-A-Long!!!  We only have the edging left..  It has been so much fun!!  I have had several viewers who didn’t participate ask if the pattern will stay available… Yes, I will be cleaning it up into a normal pattern once the CAL is over… and it will remain as a Free Crochet Pattern!!

This weekend I actually took a break from Crochet..I know… I can’t believe I didn’t crochet all weekend… You may be wondering why??  My good friend and I took our girls to check a nice college out and made it a mini vacation!!  We had so much fun and the college was well worth seeing!!  Both girls are really considering this particular one and we all had a blast because it was on the Northern California Coast!!

Since the girls were little (BFF’s since Kindergarten) I have taken pictures of them as I walked behind them… I thought I would share some from this trip…

Our Crochet-A-Long Afghan is almost done and we are on the home stretch!!!  I hope you love this weeks section,,, Because it is the last section before we start the edging…Yay, we are almost done!!  This week is a simple section worked in the round, but adds a nice finishing touch to our project and a nice base for the edging!!

Week 9 Beatrice Ryan Designs CAL…

Week 9

*Note: This week we will be working in the round on the right side.  We will also be working in the Back Loops Only.

It is still very important to check your project each row to make sure your stitches are the same Top/Bottom and Right/Left.

Row 30:     Join Neutral Yarn with Sl St to any stitch in the Back Loop.  Ch 1, Sc in same St (back loop) as joining and each St across to the corner.  *3 Sc in the Corner Space, Sc across.* Repeat * * around to beginning Sc. Join with Sl St and finish off.

Row 31-34:      Working in Back Loops.  Join contrasting color to any stitch with Sl St. Ch 1, Sc in same stitch and each stitch across to corner. *3 Sc in the corner stitch (The corner stitch will be the middle/2nd stitch of the previous corner) , Sc across to next corner.* Repeat * * Around. Join with Slip St to beginning Sc. Finish off.

You have now completed the base of your afghan and now only have the edging to do!!!!  We will be doing a simple edging…So come back next week and lets get this finished up!!!
