This is the final video for this Star Afghan. We just slip stitched off and now, we can not grow it here. Remember, we need that gap to stay consistent just like it is underneath. And in order to do that, we have to then go into the next stitch. So, just stick it into the next stitch, pulling it through and pulling through.
So now, you’ve just moved over top of this second stitch and now, this is where you’ll start chaining your three for your first one. And now, you’ll go into every stitch with the double crochet up until the end point. If we’ve done this right, there should be six because the last one was four in a row on each side, so this one should be six.
So, let’s test my theory. So, my theory is right. Now, we’re going to go into the edge for the 3 × 3 configuration. And now, chain three and going in again. And now, we just went six along here. We should end up with six going along down the other side. So, you start going one, two—because the seventh one should be left empty—and if there’s no seventh one, you know that you’ve messed up some way. I love these questions I get on email. I just screwed up! How? It’s like they have no descriptions, no nothing, it looks like, “Oh my God.” To made that amount of email and get wiped out.
Okay. So, if we’ve looked at it, think carefully. So, the two in the middle will be empty and going over to the third. So, do you see how that was the same as last round? So, that’s exactly what you need to do going forward and you don’t have to do anymore style changes, it will just keep growing proportionally just like so. And once you get comfortable, you won’t need to count at six. You’ll know that you’re doing it right. And I went up until I got 20 in a row before I really, truly realized that I was getting the pattern 100%. So, good luck with that and we’ll talk to you real soon.
