Instagram photo by coastalcrochet Good Morning Everyone! 😊 I’m still feeling tired after the fabulous weekend at @thecrochetsanctuary so thankfully I had this post ready to go before the weekend! 😂❤️😊....
And now for something a little different but very traditional! A little nod to the humble ‘granny square’ stitch! And as you can see I’m having to really come away from my coastal colours if I want to use my stash! But actually this stitch and colour remind me firstly of all the granny square blankets that must be stored in beach huts around the coast and also to strawberry ice cream- a perfect seaside thought!! 😂💕😉🍦🍦⛱🏖
So at the end of row 21 you should have joined a new colour but NOT made a turning chain. This is so we can make a slip stitch at the start of this next row to get the hook into the right position so that we can then get 60 x 3tr clusters in this next row...
Remember it’s UK crochet terminology.(ss=slip stitch)
Row 22: 1ss in next st, 3ch (counts as first st), 2tr in same st, continue with (miss 2 sts, 3tr in next st) and repeat to end missing the final st, join with a new colour at end of row, 3ch, turn (60 x 3tr clusters, 180 sts)
Row 23: Miss 2 sts, 3tr in space between each 3tr cluster to end, miss 2 sts, 2tr in final st, join with a new colour at end of final st, DO NOT make a turning chain, turn (59 x 3tr clusters with 1tr at the start of row and 2tr at end, 180 sts)
Have a great week...😊💕
