COLLABORATION Entrelac STAR OF BETHLEHEM quilt #3: The First Row

The first row consists of 6 squares (well, rectangles, actually), as per the design/directions by CrochetDevee.

NOTE: the following 6×4 block was used by CrochetDevee using cotton yarn. For acrylic fibre. It was found to work better with 6×2 blocks.

You are working Tunisian Simple Stitch, which is working into the front loop of the stitches.
The blocks are 6 stitches long (chaining 7 to start) and 4 rows wide, (working into the magic ring at the end of the rows).
Remember to finish off the last row with slip stitches across, chain one into the magic ring and then do your next block.

There are many videos online to help you with the Tunisian entrelac process.

_TIP: I’m a firm believer in “consistency” — even if you are doing your stitches differently than the directions, if you are consistent (and the stitch count remains correct), then you will create a pattern and that’s what it is all about. _
