Maude in Spring

Project info
Maude by Polly Plum
Afghan block
Hooks & yarn
4.0 mm (G)

For my Whispers of Spring Sampler.
Using the Canada Goose block border.

This feels like a fairly complicated block with some challenging elements, but the pattern is extremely detailed, which helps.

My old nemesis, the puff stitch, is back… Phew, those things tire my wrists, but there aren’t that many of them-- just one round.

Whew, those “woven” corners in Rnd 8 are tricky! I’m still not 100% sure I got it right, but it looks ok to me, so I’m leaving it!

I used the method of removing the hook from the stitches, weaving them through, then re-inserting the the hook to work the stitch. That seemed to work/look the best, for me.

The instructions are detailed, but it’s just really hard to see what you’re doing when it comes to working them, so don’t be feel ashamed if you decide to go with the non-woven corners. Those corners are tough.

I dropped Rnd 10 round down from dc to hdc, to try to fit in as many rounds of the “Maude” border as possible.

I needed to leave off the last round of the “Maude” border to match the size of my other sampler blocks.
