Crochet with Me!! Winter 2017 CAL… Week 8!

Crochet with Me!! Winter 2017 CAL… Week 8!

Crochet with Me!! Winter 2017 CAL… Week 8!!


Week 8 of our mystery afghan!!  I can’t believe by the end of this week we will all be 75% done with our project… Each week I am loving it more and more!!  Playing with new stitching techniques and watching it grow…

What do you think??  I hope you are all joining me on our CAL Group on Facebook… If you haven’t joined yet,,, Click Here!  You can be a member just to watch our projects grow… This group will be open for upcoming CAL project all year-long!!

This week is a two-row repeat… super easy once you see how to wrap your double crochet’s into a nice bundle… I have a upclose picture to show you what it looks like, plus a written explanation…  Are you ready to get started??

Let’s make week 8!!!


*Special Stitching Wrapped 3dc shells… You will make 3 dc in a chain space, next you will YO and insert your hook around the middle of all 3 previous dc stitch.  YO draw through to loops, YO and draw through last 2 loops…  So, to break it down… you are doing a dc around the middle of the 3 dc stitches. It sound harder than it is… Trust me!  Just make sure to make your dc fairly loose around the stitches.. Other than that… Here is how they will look!

Alright… Let’s get the party started!!

Join Color A with sl st to top right corner st of afghan.

Round 66: Ch 1, sc in same st, {sc in next st, *ch 3, sk 3 sts, sc in next st*, repeat *to* 28 more times, 3 sc in next st, sc in next st, repeat *to* 40 times, 3 sc in next st }, repeat {to} 1 time, 2 sc in last corner st(same as beginning sc), join with sl st to beginning sc. =128 ch3 sps, 154 sc

Round 67:  Ch 3, turn, 2 dc in same st, {dc in next 2 sts, *3 dc in ch 3 sp, dc around the middle of 3 previous dc (wrapped 3dc shell), dc in next sc*, repeat *to* 39 more times, dc in next st, 3 dc in next st, dc in next 2 sts, repeat *to* 29 times, dc in next 2 sts, 3 dc in next st}, repeat {to} 1 time. Join with sl st to top of beginning ch 3. = 138 wrapped 3dc shell, 163 dc

Change to Color B, join with sl st in top right corner st, Turn

Round 68:  Ch 1, 3 sc in same st, {sc in next 3 sts, *ch 3, sk wrapped 3dc shell, sc in next st*, repeat *to* 28 more times, sc in next 2 sts, 3 sc in next st, sc in next 3 sts, repeat *to* 40 times, sc in next 2 sts}, 3 sc in next st, repeat {to} 1 time. Join with sl st to beginning sc. =138 wrapped 3dc shells, 170 sc.

Round 69:  Ch 3, turn, dc in next 3 sts, {*3 dc in next ch 3 sp, make a wrapped dc shell, dc in next sc*, repeat *to* 28 more times, dc in next 3 sts, 3 dc in next st, dc in next 4 sts, repeat *to* 40 times, dc in next 3 sts, 3 dc in next st, dc in next 4 sts}, repeat {to} 1 time ending with the 3dc in the last corner. =138 wrapped 3dc shells, 178 dc.
