Join Mikey on a trip to the park as we go on a stitching adventure with The Study of Geometry Afghan.
Follow along as Mikey explores all the fun elements of the park through exciting stitches and textures to create an heirloom-worthy afghan. Grab your hook and get ready for 5 weeks of skill-building fun!
In Week 1, we will get started in making the diamond shapes to work our way outward. We have to leave the coffee shop and go directly to the flower clock wheel in the park. From here, our journey will start, we may even stop to feed the fish in the pond. Let’s start in the center and continue to walk the paths around the diamonds and finish off smelling the tulips in this leg of the journey.
Experiencing the faux popcorn combined with the tulip stitch, we have to be conscious on which side we are crocheting on. Watch the right side (RS) and wrong side (WS).
In Week 2, we will continue to go around the park with our diamonds but let’s take it easy as the hard part is behind you. Oh look, there’s the calm pond and there’s a band on a pontoon playing music that we love. Let’s head over to the dock and get one of those paddle boats. Don’t get the orange boat though, I heard the steering stick gets stuck and you end up going in circles. I’ll let you steer and let’s share some stories as we paddle across to the other side.
Don't stress the remaining of the diamond. We are creating a mirror effect of what we already know. Follow the assembly diagram for the best results.
