Thanks for joining us for week 1 of the Team Spirit Challenge. This week we are working rounds 1-5 of the tri-color slouchy hat.
These rounds become the brim of our hat. The biggest challenge is to keep the stitches from twisting. If you are finding your chain is twisting here is a tip. After chaining your foundation chains, when you are joining to make your round, turn your work and start row 2 instead. You can always do a slip stitch and start your rounds after you have straiter stitches. Just remember to go back to row 1 and 2 and join them into a round.
Here are the directions for rounds 1-5
With A, ch 64 (72-80). Join with sl st to first ch to form a ring, taking care not to twist ch. 1st rnd: Ch 1. 1 sc in each ch around. Join with sl st to first sc. 64 (72- 80) sc.
2nd to 5th rnds: Ch 1. 1 sc in each sc around. Join with sl st to first sc. Join B at end of 3rd rnd.
Show us your WIP! Post a picture of your progress after you get to round 5 and next week we will randomly pick a winner who will receive a special gift in their next marymaxim.com order.
