Now for week 6 instructions!!  You should be able to whip through this week and snap some pictures to share this Wednesday over on our Show and Tell… Share at 6pm PST on our Facebook Show and Tell post!!


Week 6 Striped Strip:

*If working in Traditional  Color Changing Method, you can change colors as desired. You can use my picture as a reference.

*If working with Self Striping yarn, Let the yarn just do the work for you!!

Tip… When you initially start this strip it may seem shorter that your other strips.  Don’t worry… Crochet grows!  When you get all the rows done and your lay it out… it will be approx. the same length and width. You can block it if necessary.

Ch 145

Row 1: Dc in 3rd Ch from Hook(Counts as DC) and each Chain across. = 143 Dc

Row 2: Ch 3(Counts as Dc now and throughout), Turn, Dc in each St across. = 143 Dc

Row 3-9: Repeat Row 2

Finish off.

Now your are done with Week 6 Striped Strip!!!  Easy!!


Happy Crocheting!!

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

Finish Off.


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!!

Happy Crocheting!!
