Thank you very much.

Betty Eason,

This afternoon, sorry for the delay, we are wrapping everything up with this final post.

Heather Mango,

Wondering if it’s possible to get the pattern for the blocks for week 13,I’m a little behind with summer holidays but now trying to finish my afghan but don’t have week 13.Thank you.

Betty Eason,

Hi Betty, glad you are enjoying our crochet-along! If you go to our crochet-along category on our blog (https://blog.marymaxim.com/category/crochet-along/), you can see our postings for every week.

Mitch McPhedrain,

I think two of us have asked the same question- is the chain two counted as the first stitch? If not you do get an odd number in row 3.

Jill,

When will assembly instructions be posted

Nancy Sabon,

I did that square so long ago.. no I do not believe it is to be counted, as long as you have 11 ridges you should be fine.

Kendra Sagash,

I am sorry about this Please let me look into this and find out what happened.

Kendra Sagash,

You are correct. there should be 11 ridges.

Kendra Sagash,

In Square 40 row 3, I cannot make the the count come out correctly with these directions… If you are doing a hdc in the first stitch and not the next stitch (without the chain 2 being the first stitch) then you will get 25 stitches. Can you take a look and tell me what I am doing wrong here? The same issue will happen again in row 5 and so on..

Jill Lehman,

Suggestionfor another project
I saw a 1950s black summer sweater with filet crochet. All over the sweater, In a non uniformed patter, there were bright vivarant Colours granny squares different shapes and sizes. The squares were in triangles, circles, etc. The Sweater was made with #3 thread. It was timeless.
It could make a nice summer throw.

Kathryn,

The instructions are correct, when working post stitches sometimes other stitches get lost in the mix. I would check your posts and see if you are accidentally skipping/missing a stitch there.

Kendra Sagash,

I’m having a problem with Square 40. Do the chain 2’s at the beginning of the rows count as the first hdc? I see in the picture that there are 11 fpdc ridges. Is this correct? It doesn’t come out for me. What am I doing wrong?????
