Week 4 Striped Strip:

*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.
