Seaside Winter Blanket: South Coast Border (2)

Hello and welcome Seaside CAL-ers!  

This week we will be working on Rounds 5 - 8 of the border.    The 8 round pattern is "universal" which means that you can repeat it over and over again and your stitch count should remain correct.

If you would like a narrow, simple border crochet only the foundation rounds and 1 x the eight round pattern.

Should you require a more dramatic border, crochet the foundation rounds and repeat the 8 round pattern twice or more.

SOUTH COAST BORDER (2)

PATTERN TERMS:  US

SPECIAL STITCHES

Popcorn Stitch:  (Ps) = 3dc then remove the hook from the last loop, insert the hook front to back on the first dc, and again into last loop, yoh and pull through

Note:  your start popcorn stitch (SPs) is worked as follows:  3ch (counts as 1dc), 2dc then remove the hook from the last loop, insert the hook front to back in the 3rd ch, and again into last loop, yoh and pull through

Pattern Round 5:   Join yarn in any 3ch corner sp;  3ch (counts as 1sc, 2ch), 1sc into same 3ch sp as join, 2ch;  [skip 2dc group, 1sc into sp between 2dc groups; 2ch] repeat until you reach next 3ch corner sp.

{(1sc, 2ch, 1sc into 3ch corner sp, 2ch);  (skip 2dc group, 1sc into sp between next 2dc groups, 2ch] repeat until you reach next 3ch corner sp} x3.   Sl st into 1st of start ch to close.   Break off yarn.



Pattern Round 6:  Join yarn in corner 2ch sp.  (1SPs, 3ch, 1Ps in same 2ch corner sp, 2ch);  (1Ps into next 2ch sp, 2ch) repeat to next 2ch corner sp;

[(1Ps, 3ch, 1Ps into 2ch corner sp, 2ch);  ( 1Ps into next 2ch sp, 2ch) repeat to next 2ch corner sp] x3.  Sl st into top of SPs to close.  Break off yarn

Note:   Popcorn stitches are very "yarn greedy".   A more yarn economical option is to substitute the Popcorn Stitch with a 2dc tog.



Pattern Round 7:  Join yarn in any 3ch corner sp.  3ch (counts as 1sc, 2ch), 1sc into same 3ch sp as join, 2ch;  [skip Ps, 1sc into next 2ch sp; 2ch] repeat until you reach next 3ch corner sp.

{(1sc, 2ch, 1sc into 3ch corner sp);  (skip Ps, 1sc into next 2ch sp, 2ch] repeat until you reach next 3ch corner sp} x3.   Sl st into 1st of start ch to close.   Break off yarn.



Pattern Round 8:  Join yarn in any 2ch corner;  [2ch (counts as 1hdc), 1hdc, 3ch, 2hdc into same sp as join];  2hdc  into each 2ch sp until you reach next corner;

[(2hdc,3ch, 2hdc into 2ch corner sp);  2hdc into each 2ch sp until you reach next corner] x3.   Sl st into 2nd of start ch to close.  Break off yarn.

PS:   The official CAL has ended but you can still join in at your leisure.  The links to all the patterns for the CAL can be found in the pinned post of our Seaside Winter Blanket Group
