Nice easy one for our first #FollowonFriday Week 11a – Block 31

Just TSS with top stitching.  If you do not know how to do top stitching, use a needle and work chain stitch instead.

This weeks block is a Basket weave. The bad news is that there is more Tunisian Purl Stitch in this one. The good news is that this is the last one with TPS in it.

Here is what Faye had to say about the basket weave block

“Here’s my basket weave block. I did have to add one extra row before binding off. I even blocked this one before photographing.”

Below you will find a YouTube video showing the basket weave stitch. Let us know if finding these videos help.

Week 11 – Block 29

This weeks block is similar to TSS but the hook is put in a different place. There are mistakes in it so please read the comments carefully.

wp-1474369837490.jpgRow 2 has chains in it. There are NO chains at all in this block. Do not do the Ch1 at the beginning or at the end of the brackets. Also, it is a little confusing as to where to insert the hook. Insert it in the “back bump” behind the bar. If you are still confused, I can post a picture later.

Helen also said “Once I had worked out how to do it, I really enjoyed this one. I did 17 rows as in the pattern.”

wp-1474369779355.jpgFaye said “My tension has finally settled down now and Helen has already explained the pattern issue. Once finished I realised that I really like the effect of this block, and it reminds me of waffles.”

Week 9 – Block 25

This weeks block is all Tunisian Simple Stitch with some colour changes. There is a slight problem in the instructions for this one so please read the instructions in the comments carefully.

If you follow the instructions exactly you will end up with “clean” colour changes as in the example on the right.
If you want your block to look like the one in the pattern, you will need to put your stitches on the hook and take them off in the new colour. This makes the colours look like they have run into each other.

Helen comments – I did a total of 20 rows and changed colours after the forward pass, not at the end of the row as stated in the pattern text.

Faye comments – My block ended on 20 rows and as Helen explained, I was changing colour at the end of the row as per the written text and directions given under the special instructions.
