Explore Planet Earth with The Crochet Crowd! Follow along as Mikey explores our planet’s different dimensions through exciting stitches and textures to create an heirloom-worthy afghan.
Week 2: Let’s explore our Earth’s outer core!
Earth’s outer core is a liquid layer that surrounds the inner core. Embody the Earth’s outer core by transitioning the foundation of your afghan into a hexagonal shape.
Watch round 14, as Mikey is added an extra stitch to bring balance as the afghan grows. Use single crochet to keep the outer core layer nice and flat.
Week 1: The Inner Core... Where It All Began
Earth’s inner core is the foundation of our planet and the beginning of this wonderful afghan. Just as gravity draws us towards the Earth’s core, our eyes gravitate to this afghan’s center as the focal point of the project. In the following weeks, we will build on the core with crochet layers, much like the earth’s remaining layers form around its inner core.
To begin, a gauge check is required. Adjust your hook accordingly as gauge matters as the rotation of the stitches need to work with each other. Use front and back post work to create outward ridges.
Let the inner core inspire a solid foundation for your afghan!
