Left Handed Video Tutorial – All Aflutter 12 Inch Afghan Square:

Special Stitches

SPECIAL HDC – worked across 3 stitches. Yarn over hook, insert hook under the back bar of the next hdc, sk the sl st, insert hook under back bar of next hdc, yarn over hook and pull the yarn over through both back loops on your hook. You will have 3 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all three loops to complete the stitch. 

This stitch is only used in Round 8 and photo support is included immediately after the written instructions for Round 8.

Notes

  • Skip all stitches not specifically mentioned in the instructions.
  • Do not count joining stitches (i.e. join with a sl st) in the end of the round counts.
  • Be careful not to miss the first stitch following each corner set! Sometimes you need to slide the corner stitches which are worked in the ch1sp or ch2sp slightly over to see the top of the stitch you still need to work into!

  1. Hi Bonnie! Please use the printfriendly button. It allows you to remove any image you do not want in the post OR all of the images so you have a text only version. Also please note there is a full video tutorial for this pattern. So you have the best of both. Full video tutorial, full photo tutorial with text, or by using printfriendly you can have the full text version with no photos whatsoever! Have fun, Rhondda

  2. This is probably why I didn’t have this pattern. Problem downloading a pdf of it cause the web site doesn’t fully load for a LONG time. Finally got the pattern…deleted the images, but would like at least one image of the completed square with the pattern. Am going to pin it so I have an image to go by. Maybe have a tutorial instead of the images? That would not be downloaded with the pdf. Thanks for the pattern.

  3. Hi Mary, Please click on the green PrintFriendly button at either the very TOP of BOTTOM of the post 🙂 It allows you the choice to print or save a PDF copy of the instructions. Please note it is 37 pages long including the photos so you will want to click on the ‘remove photos’ option with PrintFriendly in order for them not to print out. Alternately an Ad-Free PDF copy is available to purchase for $3.00 on Ravelry. If you prefer this option here is the link: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/all-aflutter-12-afghan-square Have a lovely day, Rhondda
