Beatrice Ryan Designs… Week 10 CAL Instructions!!

So here we are… Our final week!  I have enjoyed making this Crochet-A-Long with all of you so much!!  I love the way it turned out and I sure hope you do to!!  Let me know what you think!!

Beatrice Ryan Designs Free Afghan Pattern

Beatrice Ryan Designs Crochet-A-Long Afghan~Completed

This week we will be doing our edging… It is a very simple Reverse Single Crochet Edging!  If you haven’t worked this stitch yet… there is a photo tutorial for you!!  The Reverse Sc makes a great rope like edging and is easy to make once you have the hang of it!!  You basically  do a single crochet working to the right instead of to the left… No biggie!!  I chose this simple edging so it wouldn’t take away from all of the other great stitching you did over the last 9 weeks…  If you prefer a different edging you are more than welcome to change it up… and you will still qualify for the Giveaway as long as you are done by the deadline…
Reverse Sc

* To complete your edging you will make the last 2 rows using the same color…  I chose to use my neutral, but you can make it with any of your colors you prefer!

Row 35:    You will be working in the Back loops for this row.  Join with Sl St to any stitch in the Back Loop.  Ch 1, Sc in the same stitch (Back Loop Only), *Sc across to corner stitch. 3 Sc in the  corner stitch*. Repeat * * around to the beginning. Join with Sl St.

Row 36:     Working in both loops and using the Reverse Single Crochet, Ch 1, Rev Sc in first stitch to the right and each stitch to the corner.  *3 Rev Sc in the corner stitch, Rev Sc across.* Repeat * * around. Join to beginning. Finish off.

Weave all loose ends in. You may want to steam block or wet block your afghan into the final shape.  This will help make it nice and straight!!

Done!!! Congratulations!!
