Seaside Stash Busting Blanket – Week 30

IMG_8944

The Long Waves are here again… and this time I’m publishing all four sets of waves at once – so that’s 8 rows in total this week! To make sure we have the right height for our blanket by Week 35, I want to do all these waves in one week- hope no one minds! 🙂 🙂

These will be our last waves… they’ve been such an important part of our blanket and for me it is these rows that bring all the rows together and are the staple of the seaside theme… inspired by waves which are an iconic part of any seaside scene… 🙂

These are all photos which I’ve taken over the last few years for my blog and have been featured somewhere in blog posts since 2015… 🙂

And here’s the usual round-up of blankets from over on Instagram

So at the end of Row 127 you should have joined with a new colour and made 4ch which counts as the first dtr in this next row… Remember it’s UK terminology… dtr=double treble (US treble), tr=treble (US double crochet), htr= half treble (US half double), dc=double crochet (US single crochet)IMG_8305

Row 128 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

Row 129 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), turnIMG_8302IMG_8312

Row 130 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 130 that the final stitch to crochet into is that little 1 ch we made at the end of row 128)

Row 131 1dc in each st to end, join with a new colour at end of final st, 4ch (counts as first dtr of next row), turnIMG_8307

Row 132 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

(Remember at the end of row 132 that the final stitch to crochet into is that little 1 ch we made at the end of row 130)

Row 133 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), turnIMG_8324IMG_8330

Row 134 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 when crocheting back into it after next row), turn

(Remember at the end of row 134 that the final stitch to crochet into is that little 1 ch we made at the end of row 132)

Row 135 1dc in each st to end, join with a new colour at end of final st, 3ch (counts as first tr of next row), turnIMG_8328IMG_8329

And there you have 8 rows to make our final 4 Long Waves! Here’s a photo of all the rows so far… it’s getting hard to photograph it all in one go!

This is another blog post which I scheduled to come out whilst we’re on a little European tour… we should be somewhere in the Czech Republic when this is published!! 🙂

Happy Crocheting Everyone!
