Week 4: Half-diamond Part 1

week-4

Make 6 half-diamonds, using the specified colours and Hook A. When you make the half-diamonds, the ‘flat side’ won’t be exactly flat. That will fix itself when we start adding the border.
When ending most of the rounds for the half-diamonds, you will be instructed to ‘sl st in the space between the last 2 sts made’. You will need to twist your hook back so that you can insert it between the posts of the last 2 sts of the round before completing a sl st. In those instances, the next round will start with a beginning chain. You might find it easier to make the required chains before turning instead of after turning.

Round 1 (MC)
With Hook A and MC, make a Magic Ring. Into the Magic Ring: ch 5 (counts as ttr throughout), dtr, 2tr, ch 1, 2 tr, dtr, ttr. Pull the ring tight. Sl st in the sp between the last 2 sts made. Turn.
