Crochet with Me!! CAL Week 5

 


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!!
