Week 33 of the Ray Of Hope crochet along features the chain loop stitch. This is a different way of making loops using just chains and by working into individual loops of the stitch.

The free pattern is below, but if you’d like the ad free printable version, it is available either as part of my Lifetime Pattern Pass, or you can purchase it on its own for £5 from Ravelry

The pattern is written in US terms, but the UK translation is below in brackets along with the abbreviations we will be using

The Border

With Colour E (your joining colour) slst into each stitch along the narrow end. Down the sides make 2 slst into the side of each dc row, ignore the sc rows.

When you get to the tip of the ray, make 2 slst into 1 side, but when you turn only make 1 slst into the other side of the stitch.

Weave in your ends, and join the piece to week 32
