Changing Tides – Week 12

Welcome to Week 12… the weeks are flying by! And lots of outside sunny blanket photos to enjoy in this weeks round-ups from Instagram and the Facebook group

And get ready for our very last rounds of ‘Pebble Lace’ stitch!! Oh how you’ve loved (and not loved) these stitches! They have been such an important feature in our blankets… yes, they use so much yarn, and yes, they take so much time but they have given so much texture to our blankets! 🙂 This weeks it’s back to the grey pebbles that inspired these rounds for me in the very first place…img_6329img_6700

For those of you who have purchased the PDF pattern on Ravelry it has now been updated to include Week 12 in both UK and US terms…

Ravelry – Changing Tides Blanket

Here’s a reminder of the abbreviations in UK Crochet Terminology. US terms are at the bottom of this blog post.
ch: chain, ch-sp(s): chain space(s), dc: double crochet, dtr: double treble, dtr7tog: double treble 7 together (see below), RS: right side, ss: slip stitch, st(s): stitch(es), tr: treble, WS: wrong side

dtr7tog: double treble 7 together: Wrap yarn around hook twice, insert hook into stitch, yarn over hook and pull through (you will now have 4 loops on the hook), yarn over hook, pull through 2 loops, yarn over hook again and pull though 2 loops (you will now have 2 loops on the hook), repeat from the start 6 more times (each time you will gain an extra loop), at the end you will have 8 loops on the hook, yarn over hook and pull through all the loops on the hook.

And there’s the YouTube tutorial but I’m sure you’ve all mastered this stitch by now! 🙂
