When I finished this afghan a few weeks ago, I was so thrilled to hear by your feedback, that you loved how this turned out as much as I did. I certainly will be using this stitch again and making another afghan sometime soon, so for you and me to reference, I thought I would share some tips...
Pattern can be found here in my Craftsy Pattern Shop:
Clay Post Afghan
Approximately 46"L x 65"W
(3) Bernat Worsted 14oz (400gr) balls (Clay)
(2) Bernat Super Value 7oz (197gr) (Natural)
Size 5mm crochet hook (US 8)
dc: double crochet
sc: single crochet
fpdc: front post double crochet (dc done around a dc post from a previous row)
Here is a link to a YouTube video I watched to help me understand the instructions for the FPdc stitch.
Row 3 explained:
The 5th row you start with ch 3 skip first sc and dc in next sc, this will give a staggered or diagonal affect to the pattern.
Hope this all makes sense. Let me know if you are confused.
It's hard to crochet and take pictures or video of yourself....
