Scrap Buster Scrapghan CAL Week 4.. Finale!

Scrap Buster Scrapghan CAL Week 4.. Finale!

Scrap Buster Scrapghan  CAL Week 4

 


You made it.. We are finishing off our Scrapghans this week just in time to use them for the colder weather…!  I love mine.. it is heavy and plush!  I used a large part of my stash, but I could at least make one more and probably have more yarn left…lol

Make sure you post your final pictures in the Beatrice Ryan Designs CAL Group for all of us to see!!

Lets finish this up!!


Instructions:

Rows 44-63: Change 1 color out, Chain 3, turn, *sk st, V st in center of previous rows V st*, repeat *to* across to end, dc in last st. = 41 Vsts and 2 dc.

Change all 3 strands to your base color,

Row 64:  Ch 1, turn, sc in first 2 sts, 3 dc in next st, *sc in next 3 sts, 3 dc in next st*, repeat *to* 19 more times, 2 sc in last st. = 64 sc & 20 3dc

Finish off

Rotate Scrapghan to the bottom and join yarn in 1st st.

Row 65: Ch 1, turn, sc in first 2 sts, 3 dc in next st, *sc in next 3 sts, 3 dc in next st*, repeat *to* 19 more times, 2 sc in last 2 st. = 64 sc & 20 3dc

** You will notice you had 2 sc in the last st of  row 64 and sc in last 2 sts of row 65, this is because of the beginning row and having to sk sts we had 1 less stitch in row 64 when we finished. If for some reason your count is off you can just make the adjustment to make it work for you.

Join me next Sunday 11-5 on Beatrice Ryan Designs CAL Group for your chance to win another Amazon Gift Card… You will be posting your progress/finished photo to enter.

Thanks for participating and make sure to stay tuned for more CAL’s and Crochet Patterns!!!

Happy Crocheting

Elena
