Day 245 and Watermelon
I've had this yarn in my stash for it seems like ever. There comes a time when every stash lover needs to make a decision. I like to make one year the cut off time. If you haven't used the yarn in a year then you need to either pick a project and use that stuff up or send it along to someone who WILL use it via thrift store or garage sale. It's not fair for the poor yarn with all the potential in the world to just sit around dreaming of the day it will be a garment or accessory. Give the poor string a break and let it become something.
Worsted weight yarn (mine was a cotton tape style) about 200 yards
size K hook
Chain 139 (or any multiple of 3 + 4 stitches)
Single crochet in the second and every following chain.
Row 1: Chain 3, turn. DC into the second stitch, *chain 1, skip one stitch, dc into the next 2 stitches* repeat to the end of the row.
Row 2: Chain 1, turn. *SC once into each stitch and once into each chain space.* to the end of the row.
Repeat these two rows. I changed colors after every other row and carried the opposite color up the side. This would also look nice with many different colors. I maintain that the best place to start a new color with with row 1.
Cut the yarn, sew in ends, enjoy :)
