WEEK 20 Waves of Diagonal Shells

WEEK 20  Rows 129-134

*****The SHELL combo we will be using is as follows: {1dc, ch3, 4 tr } all in same place.*****

Row 129  (pale blue)

Ch3,1 treble in every stitch across

Row 130  ( bright blue) ...on the crest of a wave...

Ch1, 1 dc in same place, ch3, 4 tr in same place, * miss 3 stitches,  1 SHELL in next stitch (see above), repeat from * to last 4 stitches working 1 dc in last stitch.

Row 131 ( powder blue)

Ch3,  *miss 1 tr, tr2tog over next 2 sts, ch3, miss 1 tr, 1dc between next tr and ch3, repeat from * to end.

 Tr2tog  : YO and into next tr,  

yo pull through, yo pull through 2 loops, 2 loops left

yo into  next stitch , yo pull through, yo pull through 2 loops, yo pull through all 3

tr2tog completed

now chain 3

then do a dc in the top of the ch3 or just in the gap if you prefer

Here I've done the dc in the gap (so much easier!)

Then repeat the tr2tog

This reminds me of the white foam on the top of cresting waves...

Row 132  ( Teal)

Ch1, 1 SHELL in 1st st, * miss 3 ch and next stitch, 1 SHELL in next dc, repeat from  * to end

Row 133  ( sea green)

Repeat row 131

This just shows you where to put your hook for the dc (in the top of the ch3 from the previous row)

Showing the completed dc in the top of the ch3 this time rather than the gap but either way is fine

Row 134  ( pale blue )

Ch3, * 2 trs in each ch3 space, 1 tr in top of tr2tog and 1 tr in the top of the dc, repeat from * to end so that you have a 4 tr repeat..this is important as  when I did mine first time I ended up with way over my stitch count so had to re-do it!
