Okay. So, way number two is you’re going to start it like regular blanket but we’re going to use two strings as one on your first chain line. So, I am only going to go 10. And so, what we want to do is that we want the orange and the pink to be going up the side so that the side will look like the first line here.
So, what we’re going to do is when we chain up our three, on the third, final chain, we’re only going to grab one color. In this case, I’m going to grab pink as going across the top of the first line. So, one and two and now, I am only going to grab pink. So, I am going to let the orange drop. But in this case, I am going to leave the orange behind completely. I am not going to take it with me.
So, what we’re going to do is we’re going to double crochet just with the pink, leaving the orange behind. So, what’s the catch with doing it this way? When I get to the end of the line, where is the orange going to be? It’s going to be left behind, so I am not able to switch off with orange when I get to the end of this line. And in order to get back to the orange, I need to come back.
So basically, they could hear the mouse in that. So, when I get to the end of this line because we’re double crocheting, there is no orange for me to grab on to. So, we’re going to turn it. No orange. The orange is left over here. See? And the orange will not come out just the way that we’ve done the stitching, the orange is stock there which is good. So, we’re going to chain up three. And now, we’re making our way back.
So, when we get back to this other line, the orange is going to be there waiting for us. And what we want to do is that we want to grab that right on the very last stitch.
So, on the very last stitch, we’re going in and what we’re going to do is pull through the one pink. And then what we’re going to do is grab that orange and pink. Grab it up and up. So, that made that orange travel up.
So, what’s going to happen is that every time all the color changes will always be done on this side of the actual craft. So then, at the end of your project, you’re going to have these sides clear. You’re just going to have a clear pink. In the next one, you’ll have a clear orange. So then, when you’re finishing off the project, all you have to do is go around the areas which will be this one side of the blanket with just a single stitch and then that will make it with the actual two materials joined together. And then, that will make the blanket look complete.
So, for example, say you ended up with pink at the end, what we’re going to just do, we can just do single stitching. So, at the very end, what you just got to do is just single stitch. And then this will be the side of the blanket that did not have the color changes. So, I took out—I just do is just turn your corner one and two. Turn your corner and just work your way down that line as well.
See? So then, you end up with your blanket. That would be your finishing. So if yeah this is—you're going to pull the entire blanket, you ended up—because you single stitched along the last edge, then you came down the edge that never didn’t need the color changing, you end up with a blanket that is balanced and a lot easier to maintain. And I guess that’s it.
