American Crochet – Wonder Crochet Blanket CAL
 
The instructions below are specific to the Wonder Crochet Blanket with 165 STS
SKILL LEVEL:
Easy – Intermediate
YARN:
Elle Charity Solid & Print 5 colors (This is due to Redheart Soft not being available for me – this is the closest substitute)
HOOK:
The Cal recommends a 5,5 mm hook but I am using a 5 mm this due to the way I crochet and my tension
INSTRUCTIONS:
ROW 1 (row 25): right side CH3 (COUNTS AS 1 DC), SKIP 1 ST, *WORK (1 DC, 1 CH, 1 DC) INTO NEXT ST, SKIP 1 ST, WORK 1 DC INTO NEXT 2 STS, SKIP 1 ST.
REPEAT FROM * UNTIL LAST 4 STS. SKIP 1 ST, WORK (1DC, 1 CH, 1 DC) INTO NEXT ST, SKIP 1 ST, WORK 1 DC INTO TOP OF TURNING CH
ROW 2 (row 26): wrong side CH 4 (COUNTS AS 1 DC + 1 CH). *WORK 3 DC INTO 1 CH SPACE, CH 1, WORK 1 SC INBETWEEN 2 DC OF PREVIOUS ROW, CH 1. REPEAT FROM * UNTIL END, WORKING 1 DC INTO TOP OF TURNING CH (33 X 3 DC SHELLS MADE)
PATTERN NOTE – Due to some difficulty on ROW 2
Row 6 of Part 4 should have given you 165 STS- Look at the image below-Part 5 Row 1- the pattern is worked over five stitches. DO NOT COUNT THE FIRST DC(3CH) – SKIP ST, WORK 1DC,1CH, 1DC INTO NEXT ST, SKIP ST, WORK 1 DC INTO NEXT 2 STS – this gives a 5 stitch count – repeat and it should give you 33 spaces in row 2 for 33 SHELLS.
 

 

Technical count – 32 x 1 DC in 2 STS = 64, 33 x (1DC, CH1, 1DC) into ST, 66 SKIPPED STS, plus the starting DC and the last DC = 64 + 33 + 66 + 2 = 165 STS

 

ROW 3 (row 27): right side CH4 (COUNTS AS 1 DC + 1 CH). *WORK 1 SC INTO CENTER DC OF 3 DC SHELL,CH1, WORK 3 DC INTO SC OF PREVIOUS ROW, CH 1. REPEAT FROM * UNTIL END WORK 1 DC INTO TOP OF TURNING CH (32 X 3 DC SHELLS)

    Hi Row 6 of Part 4 should have given you 165 STS- Look at the image below-Part 5 Row 1- the pattern is worked over five stitches. DO NOT COUNT THE FIRST DC(3CH) – SKIP ST, WORK 1DC,1CH, 1DC INTO NEXT ST, SKIP ST, WORK 1 DC INTO NEXT 2 STS – this gives a 5 stitch count – repeat and it should give you 33 spaces in row 2 for 33 SHELLS.

    Hope this helps 🙂

  4. I am having a problem with Row 1 of Part 5. I have worked it and frogged, worked it and frogged, until I am blue in the face! I know my stitch count is right from the previous row. Also, at the last 4 stitches, according to the instructions, the 5th stitch from the end is skipped. Does that mean two stitches are skipped (the 5th and the 4th from the end)? Everyone else seems to have no problem with it, so I must be doing something wrong. Help!

    Hi Gloria 🙂 My pattern was designed to work over a 3 stitch multiple – so if your larger size can be divided by 3 it should work perfectly – other wise you could just add an extra DC (or SC) at the start and end of each row.

  6. Hi, does this week work for those of us who have extra stitches as it says for 165 stitches. Thanks as I cannot see anywhere for larger size.

    Thank you so much Lisa! I am so happy that you are enjoying and able to do this CAL 🙂 Even though I am a designer on this CAL – even for me some parts have been challenging! But it is a great learning experience!

  8. Hi Joanita!
    I have to tell you that this was the first week in this CAL, I could follow the instructions without ribbing it several times just to find out in the end that it looks totally different to all others posted.
    I am a rather 'new' hookaddict (although not really young any more, I was 71 in January)- started approx. a year ago – and work myself slowly through different stages of difficulties, levels and projects. I worked (after small items) successfully lots of hats and shawls and a few very simple blankets. This is the first CAL (after giving up Mikey's last year after a few weeks, I just wasn't experienced enough at that time)I really am obsessed to finish this one because it is fun to learn new patterns, as long as I can folow the instructions. Thank you for giving me the pleasure to be able to do it! With best regards from Vienna, Lisa
