BULLION AND BRUGES LACE CAL DAY 2

Hello and how is it going artisans? did you complete Row 1 – 3? it should lay flat, keep the stitches between the DCC tight.

Row 4: is easy just chain 3 and anchor in each DCC from Row 3, at the end you should have 20 what shall we call them? waves? if that is fine with you let us call them waves 🙂 at the end of the row you don’t close with a slip stitch you anchor in the middle of your first row.

Row 5: this is where you need to fasten your seat belt, this row is a little tricky. This is where we are introducing the Bruges lace tape, so chain 6, put your finger to mark the spot and then you chain 6 more for a total of 12 ch, then you make your first double crochet (DC)in chain 6 then 2 more DC, I hope you practiced the tape. So this tape is made of 3 DC and 6 chains, and you turn and chain 3 anchor and chain 3 more and make your 3 DC and then 6 ch and repeat.

If you get lost just check out the photograph… at the end of the row do not close…
