I’m so excited to be on week 10!! My project looks like a real afghan already and the last 3 weeks will just add more fun to this colorful afghan!

This week’s assignment is easy.. We are going back to the Granny stitch… I think this was one of the easiest stitching styles we did during this years Mystery Afghan project!!  The last 2 weeks we will be prepping and doing the border… So, this week I decided to take it easy and go back to some auto pilot crochet!!

Lets get started!!

Join Color E in top right corner

Round 74:  Ch 3, (2 dc, ch1, 3 dc) in same sp, {*sk 3 sts, 3 dc between next group of sts*, repeat *to* across , (3dc, ch 1, 3dc) in corner sp}, repeat {to} around, join with sl st to beginning ch 3. = 258 3dc shells

You will notice that this weeks edges are a bit wavy… No Worries!!  Edging and Blocking to come so this will shape up the finished project!!
