We have another request from another lady that is doing stripe blankets and she does not want to cut her strings and I don’t blame her for that. So we’re going to start our blanket with normal. And for the striping it should use two strings so one, there's going to be a solid stripe of one color and solid stripe of another. And the lines are done separately but she doesn’t want to cut her strings and I don’t blame her for that.
So it doesn’t matter how far you go like I'm just showing you an example of how to do it. So this will be the first line so let’s only do ten, one, two, three, for, five, six, seven, eight, nine and ten. Now you could do it two waves, okay. And so then we're going to—so let's do it. Here's wave number one.
So what we can do, we need to chain up three because I'm going to just demonstrated double crochet blankets. So I'm going to just use one color so I'm only going to grab one, so one, okay so I'm going to drop down the orange, two and three. And what we're going to do is that we're just going to double crochet all the wave across the top of the line with the orange piece left on top.
So you just sew it, you just doing as you just trapping that orange string, you just trapping it right on to the top of the line. And the reason for that is that if you want the stripping to be—you could have left the orange on this side as well but then what happen is that when this pink thing gets over to the other side there's going to be no orange for it to grab then you'll have to be two pinks lines in a row and it’s not a big deal, if that’s what you're looking for. But in this case what we’re just doing is we’re just dragging that orange over top of the line.
What is important to though, is that make sure that orange stays nice and tight as you make your wave.
So we’re going to do our last stitch and so what we’re going to do is on that very end pieces, okay we’re just going to grab our first color so that would be the pink and on the very edge pieces, what we’re going to do is we're going to grab both now colors so one and then two. And so the knots makes the orange then get ready for the next lines, so let's turn it over.
So I’m leaving now the pink down, so just move it so that you're just manipulating the orange in your hand. So let’s chain up three because this is a double crochet, so one two and three. Now what we’re doing is we’re trapping the pink straggler now down on top of the line. And why is that on the top of line? It’s quite simple, if you don’t trap it right here—you see how that orange wraps it around? It locks it in the position so it would not come around you and it won't show anywhere else.
So this would be wave number one. So you can do a whole blanket like this. I think if I put middle, I would make it simpler by not dragging that other color across the top. It’s a nice effect but if you feel like doing that but it’s not required. So I would to choose a solid line colors in a row instead of like this.
So that would be wave number one and you just keep going along, so that basically every line is a different color. So let's try wave number two. And there will be another video for that one.
