*This is a self-paced project, so definitely go at the speed you feel most comfortable. The instructional videos and posts will be up forever and you will always be able to go back and watch again and again!



Because there are those of you who prefer a written pattern and those who prefer a video tutorial, below are both. Either way, be sure to check out the video for additional information, plus helpful tips too!

Here's this week's CAL video:






Instructions:

Ch 57 (multiple of 4+1)

Row 1: In the 6th ch from the hook, work (dc, ch 2 , dc) *skip 3 ch, then in the next ch work (dc, ch 2, dc), rpt from * to last 3 ch, skip the next 2 ch, then work a dc in the last ch.

Row 2: Ch3 and turn, *work 4 dc in the ch 2 space (from previous row).  Repeat to the end of the row, then work a dc in the turning chain space.

Row 3: Ch 4 and turn (note this turning ch has one extra ch, because this forms part of the first "v" of the row).  Work a dc in the space between the first 2 dc. *skip 4 dc, then work (dc, ch 2, dc) in the space before the next group of 4 dc, repeat from * across.  Work dc, ch 1, dc in the turning chain space.

Row 4: Ch 3 and turn. Work 2 dc in the ch 1 space (from previous row) * skip 2 dc, the work 4 dc in the ch 2 space, repeat from * across.  Work 3 dc in the turning chain space.

Row 5: Ch 3 and turn.  Skip the first 3 dc from the previous row.  *Work (dc, ch 2, dc) in the space before the next group, skip 4 dc, repeat from * across, then work a dc in the turning ch space.

Repeat rows 2-5 until desired length.

Fasten off and weave in any ends that remain.
