Wow, week 4 already!

We are onto Amber. I can not fully get across to you in typing the colour of this yarn.

I am a bit of a mustard fanatic, and this ticks every single box multiple times!

(If you too are a mustard fan – take a look at Cygnet Yarns in Barely too!)

So, back to a square this week, and adding some texture.

Learning?

We are adding texture – using the stitches to help us, but we are back on squares.

See the nice raised cross shape in the middle?

This is made by doing FPTr – or front post treble crochet.

With the Indigo square, you made all stitches in the usual “top 2 loops” of the stitch. Thats what makes it nice and flat.

Last week we experienced the back loop only, which gives a spiral – you’d get the same on a square too if we did it, a square spiral.

This week however, using crochet at its finest, we make the stitch around the long part of the stitch (see the video below!). Sounds weird I know – but it works, and it works brilliantly.

So what do we do?

We do 2 stitches on round 2 FPTr, and then for every round, continue the same 2 stitches as FPtr. All other stitches are like the Indigo Squares we did back on week one.
