Granny hook up ga
You can use any colors or indeed any kind of yarn that you would like! Edit: I should also say that because the 2 turning chains count as your first hdc, you should have an odd number of stitches for every row in your blanket (you will have a multiple of 24 1 stitches).Hook size H/8 (5.00 mm), or whatever hook suits your specific yarn. So for example, since I chained 192 the 2 turning chains that count as 1 stitch, I will have 193 stitches in all of my rows.Each time we make the star stitch pattern, the first row of it needs to be on the right side of our work. When you come across a row ending/beginning in a sc, make 1 border sc around it.ch 3 and turn with new color: Now we’re going to work into the chains we just made. Here is a closeup of the past few rows: With new color, hdc across. When it’s a hdc, make 2 border sc around that stitch. When it’s a treble, make 3 stitches around the treble stitch.This is how we will finish every row where we change colors: Ch 3 and turn.The turning chains count as your first stitch of the row (and will for all rows to come unless otherwise specified). You can work over your tails for rows like this so that you don’t have to sew them in later: I like to crochet over the tail for at least 5 inches before snipping the end of it.Dc in last st: Before moving on to the next row, count your stitches to make sure you have the same amount as when you started the blanket. Make 1 sc in each chain loop: When you reach your corner, make sure you add at least 1 sc so that the corner will turn properly: When crocheting up/down the sides of your blanket, spacing the stitches can be difficult.In new color, hdc in each st across: ch 3 and turn with new color, dc across. I’d recommend choosing a lighter color so that the stitches really show up! I recommend firstly that you crochet around the entire stitch at the end of each row; it’s much easier than trying to slip your hook into the middle of each and every stitch.
Yo and draw through to finish the st (making a “clutster” of 7). With same color, ch3 and dc 3 in first stitch; sc in the sc below: In the center space of the next “wheel,” dc 7. Continue this shell pattern until end: In the last st, there is only half of a shell to be made, so dc 4 and prepare to change back to the same color as our first row of the Catharine wheels: Don’t forget, loose stitches! Be conscious of your right and wrong sides as you continue. The way I chose the order of the stitch patterns was pretty random for the bobble rows.With new color, ch 2: In the next 3 sts, make a dc but do not pull the last loop through any of them yet: When you have 4 loops on your hook and it looks like this, yo and draw through.We’ll call this a “cluster” of 4: Ch 3, sc in top/middle stitch of the bottom shell.Insert hook around the last “spoke” of the previous star and draw up a loop: Pull up a loop from stitch 3 of the bottom row, where we pulled up the last loop of the previous star. Here is the email address you can use: davish14 AT winthrop DOT edu Let’s remember our inspiration!Pull up loops from stitches 4 and 5 as well: Yarn over and draw through all 6 loops, ch1 to close the star and form the “eye.” Continue in this same way (pulling up loops through the eye, around the last spoke of previous star, in the same st as the last spoke of the previous star, and in the next 2 stitches, and then chaining 1 to close the star) until the end. Make a hdc in it and keep the same color going: Here’s what the back of your work should look like: This is why the blanket has a front and a back to it. Make 1 hdc in the “eye” of the last star of the bottom row: In the next eye and all the rest to follow, make 2 hdc stitches: At the end of the row, make 1 hdc into the top turning chain you made in the row below, but don’t finish it because we’re done with the star stitch and we’ll change colors now: Here’s what the front of your blanket should look like after the star stitch rows are done: Ch 3 with new color and turn. Here’s what it’ll look like: With new color, work the two rows that make up the star stitch pattern. Here’s what these 8 rows should look like: With new color, hdc across. The lovely blanket that inspired me was made by Julie at Little Woolie, and I must say that I’m a bit embarrassed that my blanket came out so close to hers; despite some efforts I made at the beginning to make them different, they do look so alike, particularly at first glance.
This is a row of dc, but the tricky part is getting the right number of stitches. Here’s a picture of my completed border: It’s a pretty simple (but sturdy) sc border with a cute picot edging.
