BULLION AND BRUGES LACE CAL DAY 7

Any questions?? please let me know. Did you set up your doily with the correct loops between each motif? if you did then it is time to continue the crochet part.

After you sew your two halves together you will need to start one row of regular crochet,start in a loop: 2 chains and 2 double crochet to make your first 3 DC then you chain 3 and repeat in each loop, until you reach the first corner.

To make the corner you are going to chain 3 and then slip stitch 3 loops together: the loop just before and after the center loop (the loop that has the motif connected) then 3 chains and continue the sequence.

So at the end of this section you should have 4 corners and 3 DC in each loop and 16 spaces between corners. Your Row should look like this: 3 DC – 3 ch (15 loops and 16 spaces between loops) – 3 ch and slip stitch 3 loops (corner) – 3 ch and repeat, slip stitch to close this row.

Tape #2: we are making another tape, just like the one on the motif: 4 DC and 6 ch for the loop. To start this section you need to chain 13 and make your first DC in chain 7 then make your other 3 DC for a total of four, anchor then 3 chains and continue the tape until you reach the corner.

 The corner is similar to the row below, you chain 3 and skip 3 chains below and slip stitch in each of the two spaces of the row below.

Please study the photographs for a visual explanation. Complete the row and we will continue on Monday. Any questions let me know 🙂
