Seaside Stash Busting Blanket – Week 17

IMG_6285

Week 17 is upon us – wow! 🙂 Has it really been more than 4 months that this blanket has been slowly growing on our hooks. My stash is certainly going down – I’m even running low on some colours now!

Here’s the weekly round-up of blankets from Instagram – aren’t they all brilliant? The difference in colours is amazing… all so unique which is what I love! 🙂

And it’s probably no surprise to many of you what rows were coming this week- yes it’s more ‘long waves’! 🌊🌊🌊

So at the end of Row 69 you should have made 1ch which counts as the first dc (US sc) of this next row.

Remember I use UK terminology… dtr=double treble (US treble), tr=treble (US double crochet), htr= half treble (US half double), dc=double crochet (US single crochet).

Row 70 1htr in next 2 sts, continue with (2tr, 3dtr, 2tr, 2htr, 3dc, 2htr) and repeat to end, the final st will be a htr, 1ch, (counts as first dc of next row- you may want to put a stitch marker in this ch so it is easier to recognise as a stitch when crocheting back into it after next row), turn.

(Remember at the end of row 70 that the final stitch to crochet into is that little 1 ch we made at the end of row 68)

Row 71 1dc in each st to end, join with a new colour at end of final st, 4ch (counts as first dtr of next row), turn

Row 72 1tr in next 2 sts, continue with (2htr, 3dc, 2htr, 2tr, 3dtr, 2tr) and repeat to end, the final st will be a tr, 1ch (counts as first dc of next row- you may want to put a stitch marker in this ch so it is easier to recognise as a stitch when crocheting back into it after next row), turn

(and remember at the end of row 72 that the final stitch to crochet into is that little 1 ch we made at the end of row 70)

Row 73 1dc in each st to end, join with a new colour at end of final st, 1ch (counts as first dc of next row- again you may want to put a stitch marker in this ch so it is easier to recognise when crocheting back into it after next row), turn

And that’s another week complete- Happy Crocheting Everyone! 🙂 🙂
