FATW5 – Extra Rounds – Week 22

Here we are again….. extra rounds…… so many extra rounds lol. How many stitches have you made??? Have you thought of that yet??????? Just think – the final round alone on 22 squares at 48 stitches per side brings you to 4,224 stitches for the 3rd round ONLY! That’s a stunning amount of stitches…. and I must say I am so pleased to see so many of these amazing stitches posted to our Facebook Group. Please do keep sharing your photos with us. The progression of creating such an amazing piece as the FATW blankets with so many designers coming together in one design…… it’s just a fabulous thing for all to see…. designers, testers, editors, translators and of course other members!!!! You cannot know how many people your personal creation may inspire to try their hand at something they haven’t done or would never try because they just didn’t think they could…… until they saw the stunning photo shared in the group or on Instagram. Ok, ok, ok….. done rambling on and on lol

Now for the important bits this week (and yes….. I’m running behind yet again. My apologies!)

SoulSis, Week 22 of the FATW5 CAL, designed by Mervi Järvensivu, has a final stitch count of 38 stitches per side.

Here is the downloadable document: 38 sts w/ch-sp
