Today we start on part TWO of the Woven in Time Sofa Blanket Crochet Along! Has this felt like the longest two weeks ever? Asking for a friend. 😉
Woven In Time CAL: Part TWO
In part ONE of the Woven in Time CAL we crocheted strips that will run one direction in our blanket. In THIS part we will crochet the strips to be placed in the opposite direction. Your mission is to complete the following eleven strips so that by the time part THREE is released, you will have twenty strips total; 9 longer from part one, and 11 shorter from part two. In part THREE (to be published March 15, 2019) we’ll put them all together and add the finishing touches!
As discussed in the materials and information post, for this part of the CAL, part TWO, you will need approximately 1485 yards (135 yards per strip x 11 strips) of worsted weight/Aran yarn. Use up your yarn scraps, or just one color – up to you!
Part TWO: Make eleven (11) of these:
Row 1: Fhdc-117 (or ch-118, hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in each to end) (117)
Rows 2 – 12: Ch-1, turn, hdc in each st to end (117)
Fasten off and weave in all ends on all strips.
In the next and final installment, part THREE, we will compile all of our strips and complete the rest of the blanket. This will include instructions for compiling/laying out your strips, adding the border, stabilizing the blanket, etc.
If, after you’re finished with your eleven strips for part two, you decide to skip ahead and start playing with the layout etc (technically this should be done in part three, but a little design layout never hurt nobody 😛 ) I recommend taking a photo of it when you get it the way you like it. That way, when we start part three you are ready to hit the floor running! Part three will be released on March 15th.
If you’re new here, see all of the details for this Woven in Time crochet-along in the materials and other information post, catch up with part ONE over here, and be ready for part THREE on Friday, March 15th, 2019!
