Now for week 6 instructions!!  You should be able to whip through this week and snap some pictures to share this Wednesday over on our Show and Tell… Share at 6pm PST on our Facebook Show and Tell post!!

 

Week 6 Striped Strip:

*If working in Traditional  Color Changing Method, you can change colors as desired. You can use my picture as a reference.

*If working with Self Striping yarn, Let the yarn just do the work for you!!

Tip… When you initially start this strip it may seem shorter that your other strips.  Don’t worry… Crochet grows!  When you get all the rows done and your lay it out… it will be approx. the same length and width. You can block it if necessary.

Ch 145

Row 1: Dc in 3rd Ch from Hook(Counts as DC) and each Chain across. = 143 Dc

Row 2: Ch 3(Counts as Dc now and throughout), Turn, Dc in each St across. = 143 Dc

Row 3-9: Repeat Row 2

Finish off.

Now your are done with Week 6 Striped Strip!!!  Easy!!

 

Happy Crocheting!!
