Pictured above is my Week 11 Progress Picture!! This one is done in Loops and Threads Impeccable Yarn…
I also have been working with Red Heart Unforgettable Yarn for a different look by its Self Striping pattern… You probably have noticed I haven’t posted a picture last week or this week… Well, Just like all of you,,, Life has happened! A few weeks ago I was offered a really great job as an Administrative Assistant for a local forest products company… I started a couple of weeks ago and… Yikes~a huge learning curve and long hours!!! I will be catching up on the second afghan in the next couple weeks and will post that picture too!!!
Are you ready to put your afghan together?? Let’s get to work!
First: You will join all of your strips together using the same method as you did with the Granny Strip! Use my picture above for placement or.. If you want to switch it up that is great too!!
Second: We will be starting the edging with one row of Single Crochet! So here are the instructions for that…
