The weeks keep flying by and week 19 of our Blanket is here! We start with a couple more rows of ‘V Stitch’ and end with some shells… yes the shells are back!
But first here’s the usual round-up of blankets being shared over on Instagram…
It’s lovely to see that many blankets are being taken outside for some gorgeous photos!
And this time the colours I’ve chosen for my two rows of ‘V Stitch’ remind me of campfires on the beach! 🔥🔥🔥 My blanket has already been round a campfire – and so has Jill’s @jillsbooksandhooks and Sharon’s @thewoolyflamingo – they’ve shared photos of their blankets nearby too…
So at the end of Row 77 you should have joined with a new colour and made 3 ch which counts as the first tr of this next row… remember it’s UK crochet terminology and dtr: double treble (US treble)
Row 78 Miss 1 st, continue with (2tr in-between the sts from previous row) to end, 1tr in final st, join with a new colour at end of final st, 3ch, turn (89 groups of 2tr with 1 tr at each side)
Row 79 Repeat Row 78, join with a new colour at end of final st, 4ch (counts as first dtr of next row), turn
And now for the shells… 🙂
Remember I did a YouTube Tutorial for these when we did these first time round…
Row 80 3dtr into st at base of turning chain, *miss 3 sts, 1dc in next st, miss 3 sts, 7dtr in next st, repeat from * to end, miss 2 sts, 1dc in final st joining with a new colour at end of st, 4ch, turn (22 shells and 1 half shell)
Row 81 2dtr into st at base of turning chain, *miss 3 sts, 1dc in next st, miss 3 sts, 7dtr in next st, repeat from * to end, miss 3 sts, 1dc in final st joining with a new colour at end of st, 4ch, turn (22 shells and 1 half shell)
And that’s it for this week… Enjoy! 🙂
