FATW5 – Extra Rounds – Week 14

Week 14 of the #FATW5 CAL brought us a stunning mashup of *Southwestern* and *crochet* by Jessica Wifall in her Albuquerque square. With a finished side stitch count of 40 + chain space corners, this design will use our previously released Downloadable Document: 40 w/ch-sp to finish off your three extra rounds.

And as a friendly reminder for those just joining us……. Do be sure to have a look at the first blog article about the 3 Extra Rounds HERE if you haven’t read what the purpose for these rounds are…… you will find all the answers in that article.
