#TunisianTuesdayCAL Week 14 – Block 20
Another mostly TSS block but with raised stitches. You need to remember that this is a US pattern so read “dtr” instead of “tr”.
Faye says “My notes tell me that I needed to do 3 extra rows and that I used double crochet for the bind off. I do remember that it didn’t quite make a square with the usual slip stitch bind off.”
Helen said “I actually did the amount of rows in the pattern for this one.”
#FollowonFriday Week 14a – Block 26
Mostly TSS again. One row plain TSS and the next working a tr (dc-lp in pattern) in to the row below. Both Faye & Helen have no notes for this one, however Faye did mention that when doing this one again she would make the last passes look similar to the beginning as she found the top few rows displeasing to her eye (OCD does still kick in at times).
#TunisianTuesdayCAL Week 15 – Block 12
This one is all TSS but with colour changes. Helen used a separate ball for each colour rather than carrying along the back. It looks neater.
Faye found that she needed to keep her strands looser than normal but did say that following a graph was far easier than she expected.
#FollowonFriday Week 15a – Block 17
This uses bobbles and the dtr (says tr in pattern) used in block 20. When kaning the bobbles, the hook is inserted as for the knit stitch. It is a bit like making shells but there is a little extra to make them into a bobble.
Faye did say that if she were to do this block again then she would put her extra row of TSS after row 3 and before row 4, as adding the extra row at the end left a large blank space.
