Dvora by Iris Fait

Don’t pack your bags just yet because Iris Fait is back this week with another square for our Friends Around the World CAL!  We’re staying in Israel for a little while longer to work on week 14!  Iris has designed another lovely square called Dvora and we can’t wait for you to show them off on our Facebook page, CAL – Crochet A Long!

Dvora is the name of Iris’ beloved mother-in-law. The word is derived from Deborah, the prophetess from the Bible, but Dvora also means honey bee in Hebrew.

Important Additional Pattern Info

Don’t forget you will need to add an extra three rounds to your square to achieve the final 48 st/side count which is necessary for joining. You can find the instructions for all squares here. Translations for these additional rounds can be found here.    The extra rounds will vary slightly from week to week because the squares vary in ending stitch counts so be sure to follow the directions for each square.

This square ends with a 40 stitch count on each side.  You will need to add an additional 8 stitches per side for a total of 48 stitches per side.
