If you are just joining in the fun, or have been with us all three weeks… It is easy to have some fun with this Retro Style Afghan… You can click on the Crochet with Me tab at the top of the page for previous weeks instructions and all the details of how to join in the fun on Facebook, Pinterest, Ravlery and Instagram!!  So Let’s get started with our Weekly Assignment and instructions!!

Assignment…

This week you will be making a full strip in the Chevron Pattern… Don’t worry, it is easy and goes by quickly!!  Next week we will be finishing off this strip using a special technique… So make sure you DO NOT skip ahead and edge or try to join it quite yet!!!

*Tips*

Your strip should be almost as wide as your Granny’s Circle In the Square strip… minus the edging!!  If it is way to narrow, you can adjust by using a larger hook or blocking it into shape when done crocheting this week.  If your  strip is turning out to wide,,, you will want to go down a hook size…  A little difference in with won’t hurt anything.. Your afghan will have some natural spreading once done.

For the length ,,, this will be more important!  I have crochet a specific number of rows that worked for me to get the correct length. Your new strip should be shorter than your Granny’s Circle in Square strip(approx 1″), this will allow us to do the last 2 rows of the Chevron strip next week and the edging… So Carefully compare your strip and you can add or subtract rows as needed to get the correct length for your own afghan!!

We will be using HDC instead of DC for this strip,,, You may be wondering why!!  The Chevron HDC gave a much nicer look than when using the Dc technique,,, The DC Chevron was more like a wave than the more pointy HDC Technique.

*For Self-Striping Yarn… Just keep making your rows until the correct length.

*For Traditional Color Changing, You can change as often as you like, I liked the look of changing color every 3 rows.

Stitches: 

Ch ~ Chain     Sl St ~ Slip Stitch     Hdc ~ Half Double Crochet     Sk ~ Skip

Instructions:

Ch 21

Row 1:  Hdc in the 2nd Ch from hook and the next 3 Chs, 3 Hdc in the next Ch, Hdc in the next 4 Chs, Sk 2 Chs, Hdc in the next 4 Chs, 3 Hdc in the next Ch, Hdc in the last 4 Chs. = 22 Hdc(The turning ch counts as a Hdc)

Row 2:  Turn, Sl St in the first 2 Sts, Ch 2 (Counts as Hdc now and throughout), Hdc in the next 3 Sts, 3 Hdc in the next St,  Hdc in the next 4 Sts, Sk 2 Sts, Hdc in the next 4 Sts, 3 Hdc in the next St, Hdc in the next 4 Sts, Leaving the last St unworked. ( Your 3 Hdc in one stitch should be in the center stitch of the previous rows same 3 Hdc stitch combo.This will make the peek of your chevron. So be careful to achieve this. The Sk 2 Sts will always be over the previous rows Skipped stitches too!) = 22 Hdc

Repeat Row 2 until your Chevron Strip is approx. 1″ Shorter that your previous strip. I had 105 rows in my Chevron Strip!!
