Corner to Corner

This is what I'm doing in my copious spare time:



Corner to Corner Crocheted Afghan
Lion Brand Thick and Quick, 4 skeins
M hook

Ch 6
Rnd 1:  In 4th chain from hook, dc.  Dc in next two chains.  Turn.  (1 block made)
Rnd 2:  Ch 6.  In 4th chain from hook, dc.  Dc in next two chains.  (sl st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in ch-3 sp of previous row.  Turn.  (2 blocks made)
Rnd 3:  Ch 6.  In 4th chain from hook, dc.  Dc in next two chains.  *sl st, ch 3, 3 dc all in ch-3 sp of previous row*, repeat.  Turn.  (3 blocks made)
Rnd 4:  Ch 6.  In 4th chain from hook, dc.  Dc in next two chains.  *sl st, ch 3, 3 dc all in ch-3 sp of previous row*, repeat in all blocks.  Turn.  (4 blocks made)
Rnd 5 etc:  Continue Rnd 4 until you reach the length and width you desire (the straight sides of your triangle.  I think the above afghan had maybe 20-22 blocks at its widest.)

Now to decrease:  sl st across first 3 dc *sl st, ch 3, 3 dc all in ch-3 sp* repeat to last ch-3 space; sl st in last sp.  Turn.  Do not make a block in the last space.

Decrease until you complete round with 1 block, fasten off.

Edge as desired (mine is a picot edge, on top of a round of sc;  *(sc, ch 3, sc) in same stitch, 3 sc* repeat, adjusting for corners.)
