Crochet-Along Week 8

Crochet-Along Week 8

Kendra Sagash |

This is our week to start putting edgings on our finished squares and take a break from adding new squares, or if you are new to the Crochet Along all of the previous weeks are posted here for you to jump in with us! This week will give you time to catch up if you have fallen behind! The edging will be the same for all the squares, no exception. You could skip the edging and just whip stitch them together as is at the end, but adding the border on each square will give it a nice finished look, as well as make it easier to assemble the blanket.  Square edgings: Join with MC in any corner space Ch 1, (3 sc) in same corner space, 3 times, work 28 sc evenly to beginning sc, sl st to join. Fasten off. We hope everyone is caught up with their squares by next week when we will get back to making more. We hope you all are enjoying taking part and be sure to subscribe to get all of the new posts sent directly to your inbox.

Kendra Sagash,

how do you print the directions? I don’t see any print option available thanks

Phyllis Yelle,

Fantastic, That is a great idea!

Kendra Sagash,

Carol, Yes the ch 1 is correct. The ch 1 give the height needed to begin the sc. Though it is not to be counted as a stitch. I tried a variant of a possible standing sc, but that was very bulky and odd. This was the only way join and begin. I would be sure to end with an invisible join that may help smooth it out. We currently don’t have a video for the invisible join, just google it.

Kendra Sagash,

Thank you.

Carol,

I am sorry I did not get your first response, thank you for the answer and how many yards for the all over border at the end.

Pauline,

Anytime Pauline!! We can’t wait to see what yours looks like!! Be sure to share your progress on our Facebook page!

Kendra Sagash,

I only did two this weekend, because I don’t like the look of the starting corner. The Chain 1 in the directions is correct? That corner sticks out more then the others, for me, something not working out. Thanks!

Carol,

I am printing out all the directions, might want to long panel versions of favorite squares, someday.

Carol,

Yes some squares will be obvious which side will go face up, but others just use your creativity to make that decision.

Kendra Sagash,

Pauline the total yardage is in the introductory week as well as mine and Heathers response to your first request. The whole thing will average between 2000-2500 yards depending on your gauge. For edging and assembly I would say about 350-400 yards. This is not including the over all border at the end.

Kendra Sagash,

Just to confirm, that is 124 sc all the way around?

Jill,

Yes it is.

Kendra Sagash,

When designing the over all pattern I had to see how many stitches would be appropriate for the average size square due to the pattern change for each square. I didn’t want one design to be squished etc. There will also be another break/border week around week 13 or 14. FYI.

Kendra Sagash,

Does it matter if you have the Right side up or not, when you are doing the edging? Just reading the directions, and wondering, the first corner in which we begin, would we end up with an four stitches in this corner instead of 3? Have not done this before, have to make sure I start off the right foot, thanks.

Carol,

This will be a very interesting blanket when completed. I am keeping track of the patterns for each square and as I am currently in the middle of a different project but will try this one when I am done.
I also noticed that the squares are an excellent size for “dish cloths” so I have tried a few squares to change up the ones I am doing for a church sale. Thank you…
Looking forward to seeing what is next
