WEEK 18 'Blackberry Bush'

Week 18 Rows 113-121

OK this is another one where you have to keep an eye on the chart as you work so that the bobbles are evenly spaced around the dcs either side of them. Also, if you have a definite right and wrong side to you blanket you want to make sure that you start the bobbles (row 115) on the RIGHT side so that they all pop out the correct way. This might mean you doing one less or extra row at the start to get you  on the right side. I will point out the RS (right side) and WS (wrong side) when we get there.

Row 113 ( lilac)

Ch3, 1 tr in every stitch to end

Row 114  ( green) (WS)

Ch3 , 1 tr in every stitch to end

Row 115 (blackberry) RIGHT SIDE!

ch1, 1 dc in same place, 1dc in next stitch, * tr5 together in next stitch, 1dc in each of the next 3 stitches, repeat from * ending with a dc in the tch (turning chain). Here is the photo tutorial...

yo  into stitch yo and pull through then yo pull through 2 so 2 loops left

repeat first step  til 3 loops left

repeat til 4 loops left

repeat til 5 loops left

repeat til 6 loops left

yo and pull through all 6 loops at once...1 blackberry bobble made!

1 dc in each of the next 3 stitches

Hopefully that's gone ok...when you get to the end you'll need to see how many dcs you should finish on  to make it look best

Row 116  (green)

Ch3, 1 tr in next stitch and every stitch to the end (i.e 1 tr in each of the dcs and 1 in the top of the blackberry )

this shows what the bobbles look like from the WS

This shows where you do the treble in the top of the bobble

This shows the bobbles from the RS

Row 117 (blackberry)

1ch, 1 dc in same place, 1 dc in each of the next 4 trs, * tr5 tog in next tr, 1 dc in each of the next 3 tr, repeat from *. Make sure yours line up as in the chart which might mean you don't  start with 4 dcs.

I only did 3 dcs at start not 4 so that my first bobble was in the middle of the 2 bobbles on the row below

Row 118  ( green)

Repeat Row 116

Row 119 (blackberry)

Repeat row 115 making sure that the bobbles line up with that first row

Row 120 (green)

Repeat row 116

Row 121  (lilac)

Repeat row 113

The Right Side

The Wrong Side (still looks lovely anyway so I'm not bothered which is RS or WS!) 

A few of you have asked for a photo of my CAL so far so here it is! I'd love to see yours if you fancy sharing them in the comments below.
