Work In Progress (WIP) 2015 Crochet Along – Mystery Afghan: Clue #6/7…The JOIN!

wpid-20150403_205548.jpgHere is  my WIP for the Mystery Afghan CAL. Clue #6/7 can be found here.

We are in the home stretch!!! This week came…the join. We added a row and joined our squares using a braided stitch technique. The instructions were also to not have two of the same colors touch. They provided a chart which I have followed. I am trying really hard to be technically correct and not stray from the pattern.

The 20 chain loops came into play this week! As you can see they get pulling into the corners with this new row.

I think this is a very unique way to join squares. It was a lengthy process though to measure out your yarn into individual balls and them pull them through your chain spaces with almost each stitch. Worth it, but tedious.

Here are some more images of Week #6/7 WIP:
