Beatrice Ryan Designs Crochet-A-Long Afghan~Completed
This week we will be doing our edging… It is a very simple Reverse Single Crochet Edging! If you haven’t worked this stitch yet… there is a photo tutorial for you!! The Reverse Sc makes a great rope like edging and is easy to make once you have the hang of it!! You basically do a single crochet working to the right instead of to the left… No biggie!! I chose this simple edging so it wouldn’t take away from all of the other great stitching you did over the last 9 weeks… If you prefer a different edging you are more than welcome to change it up… and you will still qualify for the Giveaway as long as you are done by the deadline…
* To complete your edging you will make the last 2 rows using the same color… I chose to use my neutral, but you can make it with any of your colors you prefer!
Row 35: You will be working in the Back loops for this row. Join with Sl St to any stitch in the Back Loop. Ch 1, Sc in the same stitch (Back Loop Only), *Sc across to corner stitch. 3 Sc in the corner stitch*. Repeat * * around to the beginning. Join with Sl St.
Row 36: Working in both loops and using the Reverse Single Crochet, Ch 1, Rev Sc in first stitch to the right and each stitch to the corner. *3 Rev Sc in the corner stitch, Rev Sc across.* Repeat * * around. Join to beginning. Finish off.
Weave all loose ends in. You may want to steam block or wet block your afghan into the final shape. This will help make it nice and straight!!
