Today's pattern is:
Double Crochet (DC) Rows
PATTERN TERMS: US
YARN WEIGHT: DK (8PLY / LIGHTWORSTED WEIGHT)
HOOK SIZE: 5.00mm
With the dc row strip you will join two of your square strips like shown in the photo of Zelna’s finished blanket in the picture below: the Tall Daisy Squares and the Mini Grannies on the right. I will show how I did the join on my peacock blanket.
For an alternative way to add the dc rows and join two square strips, click this link and have a look at Zelna’s "trick". :) Love to learn all the different ways and methods of joining! You can decide which one you like better and follow one of the tutorials.
Row 1: Join your yarn (I used white and changed colors every row) into the 3ch corner of your Daisy Square strip and crochet a row of sc along one of the long sides of the strip. This gives you a nice straight edge to start your dc rows from. Turn your work.
Row 2: Ch 3. Dc in the next stitch. Dc in each sc to the end of the row. Turn your work.
Row 3: Ch 3. Dc in the next stitch. Dc in each dc to the end of the row. Turn your work.
Row 4: Repeat row 3 until your dc row strip is wide enough for your taste.
Now you only got to choose your favorite joining method and join the dc rows to the Mini Granny Square strip. I used whip stitch to do that. Your three joined strips should now look like that.
Congratulations! You've managed the dc rows and joined the first two square strips, which form the right part of Wade’s Blanket.
Make sure to share your progress pics and see you again in two weeks with Part 7 of Wade's Blanket. If you have any questions or problems, you can contact Zelna or me via our blogs or post your question in the comments. You can also find us on Facebook: Zooty Owl and Kokopelli Design.
