December CAL Part 2 - Snow Capped Throw

Posted on December 19, 2016 by Tamara Kelly | 0 Comments

WHAT'S NEW THIS WEEK?

If you are just joining us, you’ll need to check our Part One of the December CAL here. This week we will be finishing our blanket by crocheting the border - and then we're done!

 

SO LET'S GET GOING WITH PART TWO

If you are making the one color version, keep using that color for the border. If you are making the 2 color version, I recommend making the border in Color A. Alternatively, it would be fun to make the main portion of the blanket in one color, and the border in a second color - get creative, and make it your own!

Border Round 1: Ch 1, sc in 1st st, *ch 2, skip 2 sts, sc in next st; repeat from * to end of last row, work 2 more sc in last st, turning to work along the side, [ch 2, sc] 3 times for every 4 rows across to end, work 2 more sc in last st/base of 1st st of bottom of blanket, turning to work along the foundation chain, ^ch 2, skip 2 sts, sc in next st; repeat from ^ to end of foundation chain/base of blanket, work 2 more sc in last st, turning to work along the last side, [ch 2, sc] 3 times for every 4 rows across to end, work 2 more sc in same st as 1st st of the Round; join. (36 ch-2 loops on top and bottom, 70 ch-2 loops along each side = 212 ch-2 loops total)

Border Round 2: Ch 1, sc in 1st st, *ch 2, sc in next ch-2 sp, ch 2, sc in next sc; repeat from * to corner, (ch 2, sc, ch 2, sc) in center sc st of corner, ch 2, sc in next st, [ch 2, sc in next ch-2 sp] across to corner, sc in next sc st, (ch 2, sc, ch 2, sc) in center sc st of corner, ch 2^, sc in next sc st; repeat from * to ^, join and break yarn. (72 ch-2 loops on top and bottom, 71 ch-2 loops along each side = 286 ch-2 loops total)

Finishing and Weaving In

And now you have your very own Snow Capped Throw! It has been so much fun leading the December CAL here on Furls, and I hope you've enjoyed it as well. I'm a huge Furls fan, and I know you all are too, and it's been so great getting to know you all and see your projects here and in the Facebook group. Thank you all so very much for joining me for this CAL, and I hope you'll stop by Moogly sometime and say hello! Wishing you all the happiest of holidays...

A Note About Comments

Furls Crochet Team

November 9th, 2016

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
