Crochet with Me… Week 5

Here is my Progress Picture using Red Heart Unforgettable…
So are you now ready for this weeks assignment??
This week it is very simple (once again)! We will be working a Color Block Strip!! Below I will give you the stitch counts and color tips…
Week 5 Assignment and Instructions:
If you are using Traditional Color Changes you will divide the total rows by how many colors you are working with and that will give you the a good idea of how many rows to make in each color… But you can change as often as you like to make your middle strip unique!
If you are using Self-Striping yarn… No Worries!! Let the yarn do the work for you!!
Strip measures approx. 10″ wide(yes, wider than the previous strips) and you will work the length of your previous strips… Approx 115 Rows
Remember… Your strip will grow with the weight of the finished strip… So the first half of the strip may seem a little short, but it will be fine when you are done. You can add or subtract a couple of rows if needed at the end.
Using an I hook (or the hook you have been using), Chain 31.
Row 1: Hdc in the 3rd Ch from hook and each Ch across. = 30 Hdc
Row 2: Ch 2(counts as Hdc now and throughout), Turn, Hdc in each St across. = 30 Hdc
Row 3- 115: Repeat Row 2
Yay.!!!! Week 5 is done!! I hope you have loved this and now you can see how this afghan is all fitting together!!
Don’t forget…. Wednesday evening 6pm PST is our Facebook Show and Tell… Post your pictures and lets chat about this CAL!! See you then!!
