Crochet With Me!! Winter 2016 Crochet A Long… Week 3!!!

Welcome back to this weeks Crochet with Me!! Winter 2016 CAL Afghan Project!!  I am so excited to share with you the next section of our afghan!!  This week we get colorful and all fun texture!!



Crochet with Me week 3 2016


Week 1 was the material list, Week 2 we went over gauge and made our first few inches of our afghan!  There were a few questions about making the afghan larger, in the last weeks we will be adding 3 ” to each side then making our edging… So our afghan will become quite bit wider that what we are working with now!!

Also, I have loved seeing all of the pictures on Facebook of our progress for week 2 afghans… If you missed out, make sure to head over to my page and post yours and see what everyone else is doing!!

I have love using my Red Heart With Love Yarn,,, It sure does make a great afghan!!  What do you think?

Are you ready to start Week 3??  Here we go!!
