Failed JoinsI began with edging the strips with single crochet and then crab stitch. After that I added the row of repeating SC, CH3. pictured above
My first joining idea for this Tunisian crochet project was to do the plaited join I used on my Rhombus afghan, I completed the joins but it wasn't working for me so I frogged the lot. I tried several other joins including the braid join and a few variants on the granny join.
In the end I frogged them all, including that edging row of repeating SC, CH3.
Final JoinI replaced the edging row with a new row of double crochet.
The final join was *SC right, CH, SC left, CH, skipping every second DC, *repeat.
Since completing the joins I've been wondering what to make with this project because despite all of my efforts to get my rows the same length (and even adding additional rows) they all turned out to be different lengths.
I haven't taken photos of the final join yet (update: see the crochet join I used here). I keep pulling this project out, laying it this way and that then putting it back away to work on later.
I felt that without photos and without a plan to move forward there was no point in sharing a progress update, but here we are, and this is a great example of why I've started Finish It Friday.
Project started:2004 - yes really

Final Project: Tunisian Crochet Wrap
Still to do:
- decide what I'm actually doing next with this project
- block it (it's rather long so I'm not sure how I'm going to do this yet)
- continue work
- stitch in ends
- take photos

Update on Last Friday's Project
Was there progress? It took a couple of days but it made it's way to the donate box.
Did I enjoy working on it? I didn't continue to work on the cross stitch project preferring to work on the Little Crochet Granny Squares instead, I stitched in the ends on 96 squares and edged one square.
