Mayan CAL – Part 7 – the last one!

Hi folks!

Welcome to the last Part of the Mayan Crochet Blanket CAL!

Multi Mayan Crochet Blanket by Shelley Husband7

Inspired by the mystical geometry of the ancient Mayan people, this intricate blanket is an exploration of the Yucatan peninsula through crochet. The radiating lines of the central hexagon reflect the pyramids at Chichen Itza, while the surrounding shapes are reminiscent of the Mayan calendar. Enclosing it all are the rippling forms of the subtropical forest and the clear blue skies.

If you missed the earlier parts, the links to all parts of the CAL are here, the FAQ are here.  If you haven’t got your yarn yet, you’ll find the yarn requirements here.

Let’s get straight into it!

General Tips

Your stitch counts don’t really matter at this point if you’ve been on track up to now.  I honestly didn’t count at this point.  If you find yourself a stitch short or a have a stitch too many along in the front post round when making your border, don’t stress, fudge it! No one will know.

If you have too many stitches and can’t do the last st of the side as a fp, tr2tog/dc2tog (UK/US) before the last st.  Easy fix!
