Welcome to week 6 of the Textured Bath Mat CAL. For details about this CAL see this post. To join in the fun on Facebook, and find others participating in this call to talk to, join the Jessie At Home CAL / KAL facebook group.

This week we will be finishing the bath mat!

At this point, it’s time to “make” some yarn.
First, clip the yarn at the end of round 6.
Next, take the remaining yarn from all 7 colors and cut them into 3 yard pieces.
Tie the pieces together starting with Brite Orange and working in the same color order as the pattern has worked so far. Once the end of the color order is reached, go back to Brite Orange and start again. Continue in this manner until all the pieces are tied together. Tie pieces together using the joining method shown below ~ the Magic Knot. After tightening well, clip the ends close to the knots. Or use another joining method that does not require weaving in ends (or one that does, if weaving in all those ends doesn’t bug you).

  1. I don’t have any orange or yellow left at all; the other colors are way too short to do anything with so I’m going to just try and see if I have enough pink left to reverse crochet a border around what I have. But I’m having a problem… this stitch is a tough one for me. What suggestions do you have to make reverse crochet easier for me?

    • It is a tough stitch, I struggle with it as well. I don’t know how to make it easier, but you can always just choose another border st, or not use one at all.
