Flocking to the Beach – Flip Flop Block –

flipflop3.jpg

It doesn’t get better than flip flop weather!  I think it is safe to say that it is officially flip flop season here where I live and it just isn’t summer without painted toenails peeking out of a fun pair of flip flops.  The truth is that even if it is not quite warm enough, you should just put on your favorite pair of flip flops and pretend its summer anyway!

I hope you guys are getting as excited as I am to finish this super trendy corner to corner blanket.  If you are just getting started with your “Flocking to the Beach” Afghan, make sure you complete the Flocking to the Beach —Pineapple Block— and the Flocking to the Beach — Flamingo Block — as well.  When all of our blocks are finished up, it will be the perfect lap blanket to snuggle under during those beach bonfires sure to come!

FINISHING:

The first step after completing a block is to tie in all those loose ends.  Then we will add a solid border in white around each block.  With your hook attach the white yarn.

R1: SC around the entire square.  Each pixel or tile will have 3 SC (1 in the space between tiles and 2 in the tile itself).  This will give you a nice even border around your graph.  In the corner spaces 1SC, CH3, 1SC. When you have completed the round, SL ST to the first SC and CH1.

R2: 1SC into the same stitch.  CH1, SK1 and 1SC into the next stitch.  Continue all around the square in the 1SC, CH1, SK1, 1SC pattern.  In each corner 1SC, CH3, 1SC.  When you have completed the round SL ST to the first SC and CH1.

R3: Repeat Round 2.  Cut and tie off white yarn.
