Here is my color line up… You can choose your colorway to be in any order you like… The way my eye liked my colors was from lightest to darkest… A~White B~Stone C~Sweet Pink D~Light Gray E~Cameo F~Pewter


Stitches:

  • St ~ Stitch
  • Sl St ~ Slip Stitch
  • Sk ~ Skip
  • Ch ~ Chain
  • Bl ~ Back Loop
  • Dec Sc ~ Decrease Single Crochet *Insert hook in next st, pull up loop, insert hook in next st, pull up loop, Yo and draw through all 3 loops on hook*
  • Sc ~ Single Crochet
  • Blsc ~ Back Loop Single Crochet
  • Dc ~ Double Crochet
  • Picot ~ Sc in st, ch 3, sl st in base of sc just made

Instructions:

**Tip ~ This week you will be doing the opposite end of the afghan ~ Almost exactly like last week, then up the side. Because it is the opposite end, the peaks and valleys are opposite of the other end… This will make the work a bit different in counts and the way you do the first row. Take your time with the first row of this end.. You are working in the beginning chain stitches, so it is slightly tricky. The peak and valley stitches my be a bit hard to identify. Just do your best if you don’t see the exact stitches and line up the peak and valley stitches… Once done with this initial row, the rest is a piece of cake.!!!

Continuing with Color F

Row 137: Ch 1, turn and work in the beginning chains of the project at the bottom edge of the afghan, 2 blsc in st, *blsc in next 9 sts, sk 2, blsc in next 9 sts, 3 blsc in next st*, repeat *to* 9 more times, blsc in next 9 sts, sk 2, blsc in next 9 sts, 2 blsc in last ch st. = 232 blsc

Row 138: Ch 1, turn, 2 blsc in st, *blsc in next 9 sts, sk 2, blsc in next 9 sts, 3 blsc in next st*, repeat *to* 9 more times, blsc in next 9 sts, sk 2, blsc in next 9 sts, 2 blsc in last st. = 232 blsc

Row 139: Ch 3, turn, bldc in same st, bldc in next 9 sts, sk 3(valley), *3 bldc in next st, ch 1, sk 3, 3 bldc in next st, ch 1, sk 2, bldc in next st, 3bldc in next st(peak), bldc in next st, ch 1, sk 2, 3 bldc in next st, ch 1, sk 3, 3 bldc in next st, sk 4*, repeat *to* 8 more times, 3 bldc in next st, ch 1, sk 3, 3 bldc in next st, ch 1, sk 2, bldc in next st, 3 bldc in next st, bldc in next st, ch 1, sk 2, 3 bldc in next st, ch 1, sk 3, 3 bldc in next st, sk 3, bldc in next 9 sts, 2 bldc in last st. = 192 bldc, 40 ch 1

Rows 140-141: Repeat row 138

Row 142: Ch 1, turn, 3 picot in st, *sc in next 9 sts, sk 2, sc in next 9 sts, 3 picot in next st*, repeat *to* 10 more times, ch 1, (working down side) sc 6 sts evenly down the last 6 rows just made(see pic below), sl st to the last st(color F) from row 136(this is where you turned and started row 137). = 12 3picot groups, 204 sc & 1-ch 1

Finish off
