Rozeta CAL: Week 11



Hello and welcome to Part 11 of the Rozeta CAL, aaaaannnd this is the last week in our Rozeta journey. Some of you are right on track and ready to add the final border around your blanket, some of you are a little behind. And some of you has just started not long ago or will receive the kit as a Christmas present. This or another way, I hope you are enjoying your journey. I am! A lot! It feels incredible to see your beautiful creations in all possible and impossible colors. And it feels incredible to know Rozeta is being crocheted right now in almost every corner of the world.

The last week is starting today, and we will be making a very easy and relaxed border around the blanket. If you are using the kit and your gauge was right on spot, and if you weighted your masterpiece after every part as asked in the pattern – you should be fine with the yarn. And you should have enough yarn to finish the border.

But if for some reason you have run of the main color, or any of the other colors, on this part you can work with any leftovers you have. You can even finish half of the round with one color and join another color for the rest of the round. It doesn’t matter at all!

Written instructions for Week 11 are available on Scheepjes website HERE. If this is the first time you hear about Rozeta, please check General Information HERE and a photo-tutorial for Special Stitches and Techniques HERE.

Round 1. Yarn was not fastened off after last row of the bottom tapestry panel, so we will continue from there. If you don’t have Yarn A left, please choose another color.

The pattern gives exact number of stitches you need to make along the edges of the bottom tapestry panel. It might be tricky to space them evenly. Please, try to use this formula: 2dc in dc row, 1dc in sc row, 1dc in next dc row, 1sc in next sc row. Most likely you will need to make occasional increases (or decreases) to get a correct stitch count, but the formula mentioned above will give you a certain rhythm.

If for some reason you can’t get the exact stitch count, don’t worry and don’t frog too many times. Just make sure your edges are straight and don’t ruffle, and leave the first round as it is. You will play with skipped stitches on the next rounds to accommodate the stitch count.

TIP: to avoid visible holes on the edge, please, try insert the hook into the posts of the dc stitches (not under them). You will be “splitting” dc’s with the hook, and the holes won’t be so noticeable.

Join Round 1 in the corner as stated and change to Yarn D (E) in the last slip stitch.

Round 2. On this round we will be making small “scallops”. You should have 2 or 3 stitches left before the corner on each side. If you get different number (because of the different number of stitches on Round 1), you can just play and skip more or less stitches between some scallops. After joining in the corner, change back to Yarn A again grabbing it up behind your work.

Round 3. On this round we will be making V-stitches. They should be made over the edges of two scallops – not in front of them. V-stitches will pull the scallops down a bit, and they will get a kind of 3D shape.

Round 4. This round is about scallops again. They are made in ch1-spaces on top of the V-stitches from previous rounds.

Round 5. We will be making V-stitches again.

You can either fasten off after Round 7 or continue with scallops and V-stitches to make the border wider.

Annnd…. Your Rozeta is fully finished now!!! CONGRATULATIONS!

You can now block the blanket to give it a perfect rectangular shape. Please, first pin the large central mandala into a perfect circle. And then stretch a little bit the rest of the Rozeta’s body, and pin it. Please, don’t stretch too much, as it may pull the stitches and damage the texture.

And now… And now I don’t even know what else to add… Rozeta was such an experience for me – both as a crochet designer and the maker. It took a certain part of my life, and piece of my heart. And although Rozeta is out there already, it will still remain my little precious crochet baby. Thank you so very much for joining me. And for trusting the pattern.

p.s. I know you might be wondering what about those tiny wooden ornaments, and embroidery thread you got in the kit. I won’t reveal the secret yet. Let’s wait for January 8th, 2020 and see, what else is coming our way :)

  1. There seems to be some confusion about the V-stitch - should it be one or two chain stitches between the trebles?
