I can’t believe I’m saying this, but this is our last square of the Stardust Melodies Crochet Along. We did it! 24 squares down and just joining them and a border to go. Can we get an applause thank you very much?
This is “One for My Baby,” and it’s always hard to say I have a favorite, but if you made me choose it’s this one. I love the way the stitches work together. I love the shapes created. I love it. I hope you love it too.
Now, I’ll be honest. I think this may count as an advanced skill level, but I’ve given it an intermediate rating. It’s such a hard thing to determine. It’s borderline. Either way, this is a square best done after you’ve made several others from the Stardust Melodies series. Do NOT jump in with this square. But if you’ve been following along with the crochet along you’ll have very little trouble making it. The stitches and their placement is all fairly intuitive and there are plenty of shortcuts you can take to skip counting out every stitch’s placement. Check out the hints, chart, and/or video to help with that.
This square is an eBook exclusive as is the accompanying video tutorial. If you purchased the Stardust Melodies eBook you’ll received an update with a printable PDF version of the pattern and the chart that is exclusive to the eBook.
If you have yet to purchase the eBook you can get it in my Ravelry store for with a $3 discount with coupon code “stardust” through the end of the CAL, August 14, 2017, or click here to buy now.
This may be our last square *tear* but don’t fret! We still have borders to add to our afghan and a free pattern and an ebook exclusive pattern will both be coming out next week. Stay tuned!
As far as joining goes you are free to go for it when you’re ready. See this post about choosing a join. I recommend three different joins, all very different, but with the idea that you’ll want a very narrow and solid type of join for this afghan.
That’s it for today. Go forth and be hooky.
