If you want to follow along with my “wedding afghan pattern” here is the first square.

The chainless foundation…. http://www.crochetcabana.com/tutorials/chainless-foundation.htm

Tunisian double crochet: Chain 3, in 2nd stitch from hook, yo draw up a loop, in stitch from row below, yo pick up a loop, yo draw through 2 loops, yo draw through 2 loops. In horizontal bar, yo draw up a loop, in the row below yo draw up a loop… Repeat across the row…

Left Hand crochet as well as right handed crochet. The rows which use the left handed version of crochet will be marked LH otherwise RH marks the right handed rows

You will be using two strands of yarn through out the project, either AB, AC or BC for colors vary them as you wish.

With AC

Row 1:RH 10 double crochets with the chainless foundation technique

Row 2: RH Chain 3, 9 double crochet

Row 3: RH Tunisian double crochet

Row 4 : LH Tunisian double crochet

Row 5: RH double crochet 10 stitches

Have a good cuppa coffee, and make 10 more of these. ;o)
