Crochet with Me!! Winter 2017 CAL… Week 7!!

Crochet with Me! Winter 2017 CAL

 


Welcome to week 7, you have passed over the halfway mark… I think after this week you will really feel like this is an afghan and not just a project…  It was a long week for me.. Work was busy,,, lots of extra things to do… So, this weeks rounds are pretty quick.  I hope you love the texture of them!!

Super simple stitching… The combination of sc and trc makes a nice easy texture… Just watch your stitch count and placement of the slight bobbles that are created when you do the stitching…

We are starting with row 59, this is due to the fact that when we left off in week 5 the last row was 58…

Once again, a little change for the right side… both rows 59 & 60 will be the right side… this is setting you up to return to rounds…

Join color D to the top right in the 1st dc st.

Row 59:  Ch 3, dc in each dc and sc, and 2 dc in each ch sp across. =108 dc Finish off

Row 60:  Repeat row 59 on the bottom side, do not finish off

*Tip*  The trc will make a slight bump and will go to the Right Side of your project.

Round 61:  Ch 1, turn, sc in 1st st, *trc in next st, sc in next st*, repeat *to* 53 times, trc in next st, 3 sc in 1st st of side row, repeat *to* 76 times, 2 sc in the same st (corner 3 sc all together), repeat *to* 53 times, 3 sc in next st of side row, repeat *to* 76 times, 1 more sc in same st(makes corner), join with sl st to beginning sc. = 260 trc & 268 sc. Finish off, turn.

Join color E in the middle top right corner st at the top of the afghan.

Round 62:  Ch 1, sc in same st, sc in next 108 sts, 3 sc in next corner st, sc in next 154 sts, 2 sc in next corner st, sc in next 108 sts, 3 sc in next corner st, sc in next 154 sts, 2 sc in same st as beginning sc. join with sl st to beginning sc. = 536 sc  Turn

*Tip* For round 63 the slight bumps created by your trc should be offset to each side of the previous bumps in round 61.

Round 63:  Sl st in middle st of corner, ch 1, {3 sc in st, *sc in next st, trc in next st*, repeat *to* 77 times, sc in next st, 3 sc in next st, repeat *to* 55 times, sc in next st}, repeat {to} 1 more time, join to beginning sc. = 544 sts Finish off, Turn

Join color F in the top right corner st

Round 64: Ch 1, *3 sc in  corner, sc across*, repeat *to* 3 more times, join to beginning sc with sl st. = 552 sts

Round 65: Ch 1, turn, *sc across to corner, 3 sc in corner st*, repeat *to* around, join with sl st to beginning sc. =560 sts… Top and bottom are 115 sts, sides are 159 sts… 4 corners with 3sts each

That’s it,, Hopefully it goes smoothly for all of you!!

I think this may still be my favorite year so far of the winter CAL’s!!

rp_Crochet-with-Me-Winter-2017-CAL..-Week-2.png


Week 1 of our Crochet Along had a few small challenges… Trying to work up the project while traveling led to a couple of pattern typo’s… So sorry… Week 1 is all correct now and we are ready for week 2!!

This week we will be squaring up ~ then making it into a rectangle… Hmmm that will be interesting right??  Don’t worry… it is easy!!

In our Beatrice Ryan Designs 2017 CAL Group… I am seeing so many great week 1 progress photos… Thank you for all showing yours off… If you would like to join the group… Click Here!!

For all the CAL Materials and weekly instructions, Click Here!!  It’s not to late to join in the fun!!

Let’s get started with week 2,,, I can’t wait to see all the pictures!!


Here are a few tips for this week…

*Place a marker on the right side of the project, this will help when you set your work down and start the next round…

*Make sure to check your stitch count…  If you get off early in the project, it will make a mess as your afghan gets larger

*Round 20 may seem interesting doing hdc’s then dc’s and back to hdc… this is to square it up.


Round 19.  Turn work(to wrong side), Join color C in any corner ch 1 sp. Ch 4,(trc,ch1,2 trc) in same sp, trc in the next 5 sts, dc in the next 5 sts, hdc in the next 5 sts, sc in the next 13 sts, hdc in the next 5 sts, dc in the next 5 sts, trc in the next 5 sts, *(2trc,ch1,2trc) in the next ch1 sp, trc in the next 5 sts, dc in the next 5 sts, hdc in the next 5 sts, sc in the next 13 sts, hdc in the next 5 sts, dc in the next 5 sts, trc in the next 5 sts*, repeat *to* 2 more times, join with sl st to top of ch 4. = 188sts.

Round 20.  Turn work, Join color D in any corner ch1 sp, ch 2, (hdc,ch1,2hdc) in same sp, hdc in next 5 sts, dc in next 5 sts, hdc in next 5 sts, sc in next 17 sts, hdc in next 5 sts, dc in next 5 sts, hdc in next 5 sts, *(2hdc,ch1,2hdc) in next ch1 sp, hdc in next 5 sts, dc in next 5 sts, hdc in next 5 sts,  sc in next 17 sts, hdc in next 5 sts, dc in next 5 sts, hdc in next 5 sts, *, repeat *to* 2 more times, join with sl st to top of ch2. = 204 sts

Round 21.  Turn work, Join color E in any ch1 corner. Ch1,(2sc,ch1,2dc) in same space, dc in next 51 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 51 sts, (2sc,ch1,2dc) in next ch1 sp, dc in next 51 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 51 sts, join with sl st to 1st sc. = 220 sts

Round 22.  Turn work, Join color F in any corner that now is a(2sc,ch1,2dc) on this side, this will keep the dc on top of last rounds dc and the sc’s on the last rounds sc’s. Ch1,(2sc,ch1,2dc) in same space, dc in next 55 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 55 sts, (2sc,ch1,2dc) in next ch1 sp, dc in next 55 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 55 sts, join with sl st to 1st sc. = 236 sts

Round 23.  Turn work, Join color A in any corner that now is a(2sc,ch1,2dc) on this side, this will keep the dc on top of last rounds dc and the sc’s on the last rounds sc’s. Ch1,(2sc,ch1,2dc) in same space, dc in next 59 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 59 sts, (2sc,ch1,2dc) in next ch1 sp, dc in next 59 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 59 sts, join with sl st to 1st sc. = 252 sts

Round 24.  Turn work, Join color B in any corner that now is a(2sc,ch1,2dc) on this side, this will keep the dc on top of last rounds dc and the sc’s on the last rounds sc’s. Ch1,(2sc,ch1,2dc) in same space, dc in next 63 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 63 sts, (2sc,ch1,2dc) in next ch1 sp, dc in next 63 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 63 sts, join with sl st to 1st sc. = 268 sts

Round 25.  Turn work, Join color C in any corner that now is a(2sc,ch1,2dc) on this side, this will keep the dc on top of last rounds dc and the sc’s on the last rounds sc’s. Ch1,(2sc,ch1,2dc) in same space, dc in next 67 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 67 sts, (2sc,ch1,2dc) in next ch1 sp, dc in next 67 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 67 sts, join with sl st to 1st sc. = 284 sts

Round 26.  Turn work, Join color D in any corner that now is a(2sc,ch1,2dc) on this side, this will keep the dc on top of last rounds dc and the sc’s on the last rounds sc’s. Ch1,(2sc,ch1,2dc) in same space, dc in next 71 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 71 sts, (2sc,ch1,2dc) in next ch1 sp, dc in next 71 sts, (2dc,ch1,2sc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next 71 sts, join with sl st to 1st sc. = 300 sts

That’s it… Week 2 stitching is complete!!

Now… This week only, Block your rectangle.. It may be a little wonky due to going from a circle to a rectangle and if we lightly block it, next week we will have a great rectangle base to continue with!!

It should be approximately 26″ x 30″

Congratulations on making it this far on our Crochet with Me!! Winter 2017 CAL!!!

Happy Crocheting!!
