Crochet with Me!! Winter 2017 CAL… Here is Week 5 Instructions!!
This week the assignment is all about adding a little length from the squarish afghan, transitioning it to more of a rectangle… I love adding all these stitch combinations, my home is filled with all the whimsical afghans I have created over the years! This week, the stitch pattern is a 2 row repeat and once you get the hang of it… This section flys by!!
I hope you will love the addition, and don’t forget… I will be giving you a fill in option for the center.. So stay tuned next week for that!
Also, Next week I will be posting the information and rules on the GIVEAWAY that Red Heart is sponsoring… I love Red Heart Yarns and With Love make such great afghans!!
If you haven’t joined our Beatrice Ryan Designs CAL Group… You may want to,, even if it is just to see all the great progress pics… And, I will continue to have Crochet Alongs all year long. So, you may want to be part of the fun CAL’s all year long…
