Arizona CAL #02


I’ve just finished part two of the Arizona CAL and I’m really enjoying it. The pattern is interesting and there are some techniques that are new to me.

This is how it looked at the end of part one:
This is where it’s up to now. I’ve photographed it folded over a couple of times as it’s easier to see the detail.It’s difficult to see what the edges are like from the photo. It’s something that I haven’t done before and it was really fun to do. It’s a tall stitch that’s then folded over and secured with a row of double crochet. When I crochet the next row, the folded over stitches will form something that looks like a pleat.

A closer look – I loved doing that row in the red using all the different height stitches to fill in that triangle. Can’t wait to see what’s next in part three!
