Week 6 CAL
*Tip~ As always, make sure your stitch counts are the same Top/Bottom and Left/Right.
*Tip~ You can refer back to Week 3 instructions and pictures if you need to review the TRC Twisted Stitches.
Row 17: Using one of your non neutral yarn colors, Join with Sl St to any “even” stitch from previous row. Ch 4(Counts as Trc now and throughout), Trc in Previous stitch to create a Twisted Stitch Pair.* Skip next stitch, Trc in next stitch, Trc in Previous stitch(skipped stitch) to form Twisted Stitch Pair. Repeat Twisted Stitch Pairs across to corner. 3 Trc in corner space*. Repeat * * around to past last corner. Continue with Twisted Stitch Pairs until you reach the beginning Twisted Stitch Pair. Join to top of Ch 4. Finish off.
Row 18: With Neutral Color join with Sl St in any stitch. Ch 2 (Counts as Hdc), Hdc in each stitch around, Making 3 Hdc’s in the center stitch of each corner, (this will be in the 3rd Trc stitch in the previous round). Join with Sl St to Ch 2 and finish off. * Make sure your stitch count has the same number of stitches on the top/bottom and also the same number of stitches on the right/left. This will be important to keep the afghan in an even rectangle.
Row 19: Repeat Row 17 with another non neutral color.
Row 20: Repeat row 18 with neutral color…
