Where to join yarn in Round 10.

Some people joined with invisible join and cannot find the first stitch of the round.  I usually say to join to the first stitch of the round or the first stitch of any increase for ease of directions, but since the last two rounds had no increase stitch it is a little tricky.

So let us join to the third stitch to the right of the stitch that goes into the fpdc. Line it up over the increase in Round 7. There is no increase in 8 and 9 which makes it tricky but go to your first st of the increase in 7, move your finger up to 8, then to 9.  It’s the 3rd st to the right of the stitch that goes into the fpdc.  Thanks to Brittany Perrin for this photo:

If you start Round 10 in the wrong stitch you can adjust in Round 12. Round 10 is even, Round 11 is an increase round with 2dc in one st, dc in next 7. Once you get going in Round 12 you can easily see if you’re in the wrong place and you can adjust.

Round 12 can get a little tricky; read the directions carefully.  You are increasing in this round, and also placing the post stitches a little off-line.   Reading from right to left, each repeat consists of a fpdtr around the fptr below in Round 8, then you skip the st behind the post, sc in next 2, fptr around 3rd of 7 sc below in  Round 9, DO NOT SKIP, sc in next 3, fptr around 5th of 7 sc below in Round 9, skip the st behind the post, sc in next 2.  So each repeat contains 3 post stitches and 7 sc for a total of 10 st, x 12 repeats is 120 st.  Remember, you only skip behind 2 posts.  This is how the increase is made.  2 sc, 3 sc, 2 sc.

  1. On the Summer Mosaic Mystery Afghan new clue. How do you read the box chart? Motif 1 colors go down but where do the colors 1,2,3, go? Am I just being dense to day?
    Do we make each motif down with each color 1,2,3 as the main color?
    Thanks for your help

    1. Main Color is always main color. In Clue 1 you already used Color 1 of each motif, so Clue 2 builds on that. So Color 1 was used in Rounds 6 and 7 of Clue 1. Color 2 is used in Round 10 and 11 of Clue 2. Color 3 is used in Rounds 14 and 15 of Clue 2. Each motif will have a different sequence of colors.

  2. On round 21 – you do not state what color to join for the final round. So, I just chose a random color for the mandela that wasn’t already in it. Is this correct, or were we suppose to use the main color.

    Thanks you,
