What we just done there in the last rotation I showed you how to change the colors. We have the two stragglers left over here we’re going to want to hold those down because those two stragglers need to be trapped in order for this blanket to come on down. We’ve just chained up our five over the pink and what are going to do is we’re just going to go in and do our three right below and I'm holding the stragglers in place and for stragglers some people do not me, I just call it, those are the loose strings.
So we’re going to do our three, double crochets right into the corner like we did before holding those stragglers into position and by doing so, we’re trapping those stragglers in. So I'm pulling the stragglers a little bit tight because I want to kind of catch it into the next one as well. So just like we did before, we’re going to chain one because we’re just jumping to the next hole. Grabbing most stragglers and holding it down so that you kind a trapping it into that stitch, do you see that how to trapped and that is what it’s going to hold your blanket together. We’re doing three right in a row.
So now I trapped it in there, I do not need to trap it again. I've already got it trapped here and I got a trap there. So we’re going to just jump to the next one. So I'm not worried about the stragglers anymore, the excess that you can see I'm not shaking to turn off. So then this layer all the way around is going to be pink and the pink would be the solid color that joins all of the little squares together once we have a number of squares. Jumping over again with just one and now we’re working into the corner section. So then we’re going to change here because we’re going to do that turn about going into the same hole to make that turn. Okay, now jumping over.
If you feel adventurous and you want to change your colors at any point through out this stitch, you do so just like how I showed you at the beginning of this video. I just recommend you to try not to cut as many strings as possible. Fewer things can happen when you got cut strings. Not that anything would happen, I just do not trust myself.
So we’re just working our way around just like we had been on the rest of it. We’re backing to the corner again. So we’re just starting. Get three in a row like we did. Now two, putting it to the same hole to make that turn, put three in a row. We’re jumping over for one as we now work across the top and down, three right in a row, jumping over one. It might be a secret just chaining one so when I say jumping over one. Okay, we’re just coming on the corner.
Now do you see the bigger you get, the longer it takes to get around the corner, to get around but you’ve got to realize that your project is not growing on this side but it’s going on this side as well so every rotation you are pretty well making it interestingly bigger. So it makes in a very fast growing project.
We are now coming up to the final of this. That’s the pink comes background. So the next hole then we brought one going up like we did before. So we are just going to right into the corner piece we like did into two in a row. What you’re going to do is you’re going count or repeat three so one, two and three or count back to one, two. Stick in the hole, grab a material, pull through and then pull through.
And what we’re going to do now to finish this off cleanly is just rotate your hand and cut them through. So you're just going to take it and you're just going to pull out. Pull it nice and tight, push down, and what you’re going to want to do is see the stitches on the outside here, just grab the material and pull it through and this called weaving.
Now through it back cover, stick in into the next stitch on the edge and pull out through and keep going as long as you want to. I will not be chancy on this if I were you because you did not see me cut anything. So this will eventually get trapped and when you actually go to fasten all the stitches together. So you can leave it like so.
Okay, so there would be the conclusion right there. You can see that soldiery end so you see what kind of project you have and the pink that when I do the next square here, what’s going to happen is that on the very edge I’m going to make it pink as well. So when a pink would be this solid color that joins all of the pieces together. So what I’m going to do is I show you another demonstration of how to do it but with a different color and we’ll go from that point.
