Fruit Cup Fade: Part 3.

Posted by Emma Wilkinson on

Time for part 3 of my Fruit Cup Fade blanket - a quick recap; I'm making a blanket for the rainbow challenge, working on a new colour section each month. (See this post for more info on the rainbow challenge) 

This month just finished was yellow, and I used 'Banana' in Cicibebe sprinkles #595-04. So far I've used Raspberry #595-10 and Mango #595-11. The reserved mango yarn will also be used in this section. 
This month we start decreasing on one side, while still continuing to increase on the other, fixing the width at 96 cm. For the first few rows a stitch marker will help identify one edge if you need it. This means we go from a one row repeat, to a two row repeat.
To make a wider blanket, continue working the Pattern repeat (what is now the even row repeat) until desired width reached.

Pattern Repeat even rows: Ch 3, (sc, ch 1) in each ch-1 sp across, (sc, ch 1 sc) in ch-3 sp, turn.

Pattern Repeat odd rows: Ch 3, (sc, ch 1) in each ch-1 sp across to last ch-1 sp, sc in last ch-1 sp, sl st in ch-3 sp, turn.

(remember: the 1st sc of each row is in the chain space between the increase stitches, OR after the (sl st, sc) make sure you don't miss it.)

Join Banana yarn by undoing previous stitch by one step, and replace with banana yarn. When changing colours, do so in the last step of the prior stitch. Do not cut yarn between colour changes until instructed

Row 126 - 127: Two rows in Banana.

Row 128 - 129: Work .two rows in Mango.

Row 130 - 133: Work four rows in Banana.

Row 134 - 137: Work four rows in Mango.

Row 138 - 157: Work 20 rows in Banana.

Fasten off Mango Yarn, but reserve Banana for next section.
