(28 loops)

Note: Take care to count the loops on your hook at this point.

RetP: Ch 1, (yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook) until there is one loop left on hook.

Repeat Row 1 until Block measures 9 inches from beginning chain.

Repeat Row 1 and Row 2 until Block measures 9 inches from beginning chain. Make sure you stop working after you have finished an even row.

  1. Hey Rohn, thanks for the fun CAL! Not sure if you noticed, on the PDF for week 2 it says it’s for blocks 3,4 and 5 instead of 4,5 and 6. Also, in the instructions for the rib stitch block #6 you say to insert the hook in the back bump but I doesn’t say anything about pulling up a loop.
