Week 1 of our Crochet Along had a few small challenges… Trying to work up the project while traveling led to a couple of pattern typo’s… So sorry… Week 1 is all correct now and we are ready for week 2!!

This week we will be squaring up ~ then making it into a rectangle… Hmmm that will be interesting right??  Don’t worry… it is easy!!

In our Beatrice Ryan Designs 2017 CAL Group… I am seeing so many great week 1 progress photos… Thank you for all showing yours off… If you would like to join the group… Click Here!!

Let’s get started with week 2,,, I can’t wait to see all the pictures!!


Here are a few tips for this week…

*Place a marker on the right side of the project, this will help when you set your work down and start the next round…

*Make sure to check your stitch count…  If you get off early in the project, it will make a mess as your afghan gets larger

*Round 20 may seem interesting doing hdc’s then dc’s and back to hdc… this is to square it up.


Round 19.  Turn work(to wrong side), Join color C in any corner ch 1 sp. Ch 4,(trc,ch1,2 trc) in same sp, trc in the next 5 sts, dc in the next 5 sts, hdc in the next 5 sts, sc in the next 13 sts, hdc in the next 5 sts, dc in the next 5 sts, trc in the next 5 sts, *(2trc,ch1,2trc) in the next ch1 sp, trc in the next 5 sts, dc in the next 5 sts, hdc in the next 5 sts, sc in the next 13 sts, hdc in the next 5 sts, dc in the next 5 sts, trc in the next 5 sts*, repeat *to* 2 more times, join with sl st to top of ch 4. = 188sts.

Round 20.  Turn work, Join color D in any corner ch1 sp, ch 2, (hdc,ch1,2hdc) in same sp, hdc in next 5 sts, dc in next 5 sts, hdc in next 5 sts, sc in next 17 sts, hdc in next 5 sts, dc in next 5 sts, hdc in next 5 sts, *(2hdc,ch1,2hdc) in next ch1 sp, hdc in next 5 sts, dc in next 5 sts, hdc in next 5 sts,  sc in next 17 sts, hdc in next 5 sts, dc in next 5 sts, hdc in next 5 sts, *, repeat *to* 2 more times, join with sl st to top of ch2. = 204 sts

Round 21.  Turn work, Join color E in any ch1 corner. Ch1,(2sc,ch1,2dc) in same space, dc in next 51 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 51 sts, (2sc,ch1,2dc) in next ch1 sp, dc in next 51 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 51 sts, join with sl st to 1st sc. = 220 sts

Round 22.  Turn work, Join color F in any corner that now is a(2sc,ch1,2dc) on this side, this will keep the dc on top of last rounds dc and the sc’s on the last rounds sc’s. Ch1,(2sc,ch1,2dc) in same space, dc in next 55 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 55 sts, (2sc,ch1,2dc) in next ch1 sp, dc in next 55 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 55 sts, join with sl st to 1st sc. = 236 sts

Round 23.  Turn work, Join color A in any corner that now is a(2sc,ch1,2dc) on this side, this will keep the dc on top of last rounds dc and the sc’s on the last rounds sc’s. Ch1,(2sc,ch1,2dc) in same space, dc in next 59 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 59 sts, (2sc,ch1,2dc) in next ch1 sp, dc in next 59 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 59 sts, join with sl st to 1st sc. = 252 sts

Round 24.  Turn work, Join color B in any corner that now is a(2sc,ch1,2dc) on this side, this will keep the dc on top of last rounds dc and the sc’s on the last rounds sc’s. Ch1,(2sc,ch1,2dc) in same space, dc in next 63 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 63 sts, (2sc,ch1,2dc) in next ch1 sp, dc in next 63 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 63 sts, join with sl st to 1st sc. = 268 sts

Round 25.  Turn work, Join color C in any corner that now is a(2sc,ch1,2dc) on this side, this will keep the dc on top of last rounds dc and the sc’s on the last rounds sc’s. Ch1,(2sc,ch1,2dc) in same space, dc in next 67 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 67 sts, (2sc,ch1,2dc) in next ch1 sp, dc in next 67 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 67 sts, join with sl st to 1st sc. = 284 sts

Round 26.  Turn work, Join color D in any corner that now is a(2sc,ch1,2dc) on this side, this will keep the dc on top of last rounds dc and the sc’s on the last rounds sc’s. Ch1,(2sc,ch1,2dc) in same space, dc in next 71 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 71 sts, (2sc,ch1,2dc) in next ch1 sp, dc in next 71 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 71 sts, join with sl st to 1st sc. = 300 sts

That’s it… Week 2 stitching is complete!!

Now… This week only, Block your rectangle.. It may be a little wonky due to going from a circle to a rectangle and if we lightly block it, next week we will have a great rectangle base to continue with!!

It should be approximately 26″ x 30″

Congratulations on making it this far on our Crochet with Me!! Winter 2017 CAL!!!

Happy Crocheting!!
