What I did! Afghan (Free Pattern)

This is my first page on this blog. I hope to share some of the things that I have made and more.

Here the work that did in November and December. That I worked on getting Christmas gifts done for the family. I hope to start doing more projects in the future. Here are some of the things that I did starting with the pic at the top of the page.
Check out some more of my work at: http://kellysgifts.etsy.com/
This is a dc 10 and ch 10 pattern.
I think it's called Chain Afghan?
You start with 252 chains, dc in the 3rd ch from hook (the ch 3 counts as a dch), dch in the next 8 sts, ch 10, skip 10 sts, (dc in the next 10 sts, ch 10, skip 10 sts, dc in next 10 sts repeat to the end), ch 3 turn.
At the ends you will have a ch 3 and 9 dc starting the next row. Ch 10, skip 10 sts, dc in the next 10 sts. You will repeat this until you get the length you desire.
NOTE: You need to loop up the chain as you go or wait to the end. ( I loop as I go.) You do this by twisting the first row of chains one time and loop the next one above it thou the chain and repeat until you have looped up all the chains.
**If you like you can twist the chains in each row for a different look.**
Last roll you will dc the 10, but slst thou the top of each ch when you come to it. That's the end.
It goes very fast, once you get started.
