Week 26 Of The FrankenScrap Crochet Along

Our next piece of the FrankenScrap crochet along is made with the Little Waves stitch. For this piece you will need a total of 95 meters of DK / Light Worsted yarn. I used Rico Essentials Cotton DK (91) for this piece, a 100% cotton yarn that keeps appearing in my stash. I like this brand of yarn a lot as it’s lovely and silky, has a great colour range to choose from and is a good price compared to other brands of cotton.

You will see Rico Essentials Cotton DK being used in a number of pieces in this CAL, as I have lots of part balls of this and single balls of a colour from the collection. It was simply time to get these odd balls of this lovely to use yarn used up.

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 Little Waves stitch is made using shells and post stitches to create it’s highly textured ripple look. I’d call it an intermediate level stitch, but once you get into the rhythm it works up pretty quickly. This stitch would suit a range of projects, but because it’s so textured I personally would use it in combination with a smoother stitch and use the Little Waves as a feature stitch.

Joining Your Pieces

Your finished piece should be 67 stitches wide and 17 rows high, which counts as 34 stitches high for joining purposes since you have all dc rows. You can see how the pieces are joined together here. If you are following my gauge, then your piece will measure 41.5cm 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 Little Waves piece should be joined beneath week 25’s Modern Granny piece with the 2 pieces lining up stitch for stitch. You will also be joining the right hand edge to the remaining unattched stitches of the left hand edge of week 23’s Thistle stitch piece.

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