Today I have part #6 of the Winter Waves Throw Blanket Crochet Along for you. We’re almost done! If you are just joining us you can find all the information about our Winter CAL here.
I love seeing all your progress over in my crochet group on Facebook. Your blankets are looking great. If you haven’t joined, this is your official invitation to join the best crochet group on Facebook because crochet-alongs are so much more fun when you can share them with friends.
If you would like a printable version of this CAL, you can purchase the ad-free pdf on Ravelry for only $5. I will update it as each pattern is released.
Wattle Stitch Panel
This panel uses the wattle stitch. We used this one in block #9 of our 2019 CAL. The wattle stitch is a modified version of a v-stitch. You do a single crochet, chain 1 and a double crochet all in the same chain 1 space from the previous row. I love the texture of this easy crochet stitch. It also grows really fast too!

Row 3-End: repeat row 2 until your panel is as long as your blanket. After last row, continue to border.
Ch 1, sc evenly around placing 3 sc in each corner stitch. Join to top of 1st sc with sl st. Finish off and weave in ends.
You may block your panel if needed, I did not.
We are whip stitching again with your MC.
A helper I discovered this time was: after you fold the divider panel on top of the square panel, place some safety pins along the edge to hold the two pieces together and keep them even.
