Beatrice Ryan Designs… Week 10 CAL Instructions!!

So here we are… Our final week!  I have enjoyed making this Crochet-A-Long with all of you so much!!  I love the way it turned out and I sure hope you do to!!  Let me know what you think!!

Beatrice Ryan Designs Free Afghan Pattern

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…
Reverse Sc

* 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!!

Done!!! Congratulations!!

  1. Congratulations on a fun and successful CAL. Your blanket is beautiful. Have a great day!

  2. Hmmm…not much on liking reverse single crochet…lol, so think I will do a little research for a different border….really enjoyed this crochet along and thank-you for providing us with the patterns 🙂

  3. I got overwhelmed and fell behind somewhere around week 7. 😦 I will finish tho! I can’t wait to show off pictures. 😀

  4. I am having so much trouble with the border. I think I am going to have to do something different. Thanks again for doing this it has been so much fun and I am excited to finish my first big afghan.

    • It will be fine to make whatever boarder you like… What kind of problem do you have??

      • Sorry if this is posted twice, it didn’t look like it posted. I am having trouble with the corners. When I do the three reverse single crochet it just gets all messed up and when I try to do the next stitch it is kind of over lapping the corner stitches. It’s kind of hard to explain.

      • It only posted once…lol… You could try to just do 2 in the corner if it helps… after you get past the corner it should smooth out

  5. I have been trying to do the reverse single crochet but I am finding it hard to do, I already crochet from left to right all the time, I am self taught lefty. 🙂 I am doing 1 rnd of half double crochet as my border instead. I may have to do this pattern again for myself this has been a big hit with all my family and friends that see my pics.

  6. Congratulations ,your blanket is lovely and I really like the colors you chose. I would like to mention as well what a handsome looking dog Charlie is. Looking forward to your next CAL. 🙂

  7. Hi Elena, This is my first CAL and it has been a blast. I learned so many new stitches that I don’t think I would have ever tried on my own nor would I have combined so many different ones. The colors came out great and I think it is a perfect size. Please find my photo of the completed afghan below and thank you so much for this opportunity. Take care, Kelda Ryan > > > Mar 22, 2014,

  8. Came late to the CAL so I am going to catch up by myself, Thank you for the great instructions. I am going to do this one week at a time but just excited to try!

  9. Hi Elena! I am finally getting around to finishing my blanket. I am curious though, what was your dimensions on your completed ‘ghan. I am finishing the last granny row and I feel like its too short for my tastes so I am debating on repeating the trebles before doing a border.
