Crochet with Me!! Winter 2016 Crochet-A-Long… Week 5!!

Crochet with Me!! Winter 2016 Crochet-A-Long… Week 5!!

This week we will be continuing to  add more texture to our project using some of the same stitches we have already used… It is looking great and all of the progress pictures floating around are so wonderful!! I think you will love week 5 and seeing your project grow!


2016 CAL Week 5

Now for the weekly housekeeping…

*This week some people struggled a bit with the Shell/Chain Section, some had issues with it pulling in and being narrower and others had issues with the chain showing more on the back side…  This comes from tension issues… To solve this you can work at making sure your stitches are nice and relaxed, especially the chain. The chain should rest comfortably on top of the shell, then when you work the next row you will not want to crochet to tightly to make it hide.  Another thought is to go up a hook size when doing this type of stitch pattern.

*We will be Blocking the project at the end which will help with the overall look of the stitching and will help relax any stitches that may pull a bit. Also, We will have 3″ boarders on each side before we do the edging… this will help even the edges out.

*Another issue was not having the correct stitch count every so often… If you  have this issue, it is very important to count every row and/or place markers so you keep the correct number of stitches.

*Also, When doing rows with the sc and trc that make the slight bobble,,, Some of us have had an issue keeping it to the front… When making the sc that is right after the trc, make sure that it is not a loose sc.. this will help hold it in place!

Just remember,,, This is fun and should be relaxing… If an area isn’t working how you think it should, shoot me an email for advise… I will try to help if possible…

Now… Let’s get started with Week 5!!

  1. I just found this CAL & was able to get weeks 1 & 2 but everytime I click on week 3 & 4, I get week 5. How can I get weeks 3 & 4? Thank you in advance. Ruth

      Hmmm… If you are in the Crochet with Me Tab at the top, it seems to be working fine… Try again and let me know if the issue continues!! Maybe just an internet glitch??

  2. This is awesome, Im in 2 CAL right now so I was not able to get in on this one but it is beautiful!!!!

  3. Hi, I’m doing great. Started late and just about caught up (just starting week 5). Still working with the 152 sts that I should have. My only bad is that I wanted to use yarn I had which is blue and black to go along with the white, which doesn’t show the detail well. But, I am doing this for fun and plan to give the blanket to a charity so I am happy with it so far.
    Thank you
