Hopefully you are comfortable with the pattern and chart, and are ready to pick up where we left off last week! We are going to complete the top portion of the first row of motifs, work the middle row(s) of motifs, the top row of motifs, and finish up along the side of the first column of motifs. After this week's lesson, you can complete the scarf with ease, or any 2-dimensional project you desire, with this motif. You could make any sized scarf, afghan, pillow, rectangular or square shawl. Let's get started with the YouTube video tutorial and then I'll share all the detailed photos for each step demonstrated in the video.
Next week we will begin working on the lace lower body that joins to the yoke as we go: seamlessly, of course!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or leave a message below!
If you are just joining us now, no problem! The beauty of a blog-driven CAL is that you can start AT ANY TIME! The CAL will remain on my blog indefinitely so you can come back and join us whenever you want :)
And if you are just starting today, here is a reminder about the details of where to get your supplies:
For every pattern sold, I will be donating $1.00 to the Wounded Warrior Project! The Solider Love Capelet Crochet Pattern is $3.99 and available as a PDF pattern that you can download immediately, either on my website, Ravelry or Craftsy Pattern Shops. The pattern includes 2 patterns actually. You can either use the stitch pattern of the yoke of the capelet to make a scarf, or make one of the two sizes of the capelet. It is a rather unstructered garment, but the small/medium is " and the large/extra large is ". Either way, the project takes only 2 skeins of Honor by Lorna's Laces, an H/8 (5mm) crochet hook, and five 1" buttons. My local yarn shop, A Good Yarn Sarasota, is stocked and ready to ship so you can always order there, or there is also a link to Lorna's Laces Shop Locator. You can purchase your yarn at A Good Yarn Sarasota, or anywhere Lorna's Laces Honor is sold.
Next week, I will show you how to do the return on the first row of motifs and made the middle row, which is the row you will repeat for your desired length of motifs.
