Week 11 Of The FrankenScrap Crochet Along

Our next piece of the FrankenScrap crochet along is made with the Undulating Cable stitch. For this piece you will need a total of 93 meters of DK / Light Worsted yarn. Unfortunately the yarn I used for this stitch had lost it’s label, but it felt like cotton. It’s a lovely shade of baby pink and was nice to work with – it’s a shame the label got lost as it would be a yarn that I would happily work with again.

I also used a 4 mm hook – I recommend using Clover Amour hooks. A cost effective hook that is comfortable in your hands thanks to their ergonomic design, so doesn’t make your hands tired when crocheting for long periods of time. I love my Clover hooks and although I own several different hook brands, I inevitably end up going back and using my trusty Clovers.

The Undulating Cable is a cable stitch that uses shells to create it’s wavy look along with the traditional front and back post stitches typical of Cable stitches. It is a very pretty cable stitch that doesn’t cross over as much as other Cable stitches. This makes it easier to get the hang of where all of your stitches are going in relation to each other.

The Undulating Cable stitch would be perfect for a wide variety of projects including clothing, wraps, scarves and so much more.

Joining Your Pieces

Your finished piece should be 42 stitches wide and 17 rows high, which counts as 34 stitches high for joining purposes since you have dc rows. You can see how the pieces are joined together here. If you are following my gauge, then your piece will measure 26cm wide and 18cm high. Remember this is just a size indication and if your gauge is consistent throughout, then your pieces will fit together nicely even if your sizes do not match with mine.

The Undulating Cable piece should be joined beneath your week 10 Honeycomb piece and they should match up stitch for stitch. You will also join the right hand edge to the rest of the unattached stitches of your week 1 Rug stitch piece and all of the week 2 single crochet piece too.

The layout below shows how your pieces should be attached in relation to each other.

Once you have joined this weeks Undulating Cable stitch piece to the previous pieces, that is it for week 11 of the FrankenScrap crochet along, I’ll be back next Friday for week 12 and the next piece of your CAL at 8pm UK time.
