So here we are already, Part 2 of the crochet along, I hope you’re all keeping up ok. This week we are making flowers with a little more of a complex stripe where you will carry the yarn over on the back.
I hope that my block and stripe method is making sense. The basics are that you make a set of squares, join them together, do an sc border on both long sides and then use this nice neat row of sc stitches to add your granny stitch stripe to one of the sides (hence no reason to do a great long chain), its a join as you go project really. You’ll have an extra stripe to add to the top or bottom of your finished blanket at the end.
I would also add that it is entirely up to you whether you block any or all of this crochet along, my original has not been blocked at all, I feel that the granny stitch creates good square pieces but if you want to block just do a search on the internet for the type of yarn you’re using and there is plenty of advise out there.
