Work 3 dc into the last ch 1 space from previous round, ch1. Join with a sl st into the top of the beginning ch3. Tie off. Weave in ends.

Joining Granny Squares: Join the 12 squares, 2 rows of 6 to form the front of the apron. Whipstitch the squares together or join the squares with a single crochet seam (single crochet join was used in the sample).

Edging: Work 1 round of sc around the entire piece. Join the main color with a sl st into any corner space on the outside edge of the apron, sc into the same corner space. Work 1 sc into each dc, ch 1, and corner space around, work 2 sc into each of the four outside corner spaces. Join with a sl st to the first sc made. (208 sc) Tie off. Weave in ends.

Back of Apron

Starting out: With 3.75mm hook, ch 79.

Row 1: Work 1 sc into the back ridge of the 2nd chain from hook. Continue working 1 sc into the back ridge of each ch stitch to end. (78 sc)

Row 2: With 5.00mm hook ch 2 (turning chain counts as first sc and ch 1 space), turn. Skip 1 sc, work sc in next. {Ch1, skip 1 sc, work sc in next sc}. Repeat between {} across ending with sc in the last sc from Row 1. (40sc & 39 ch 1 spaces)

Row 3: Ch 2 (turning chain counts as first sc and ch 1 space), turn. Skip first sc. Work sc into first ch 1 space. {Ch 1, skip 1 sc, work sc into next ch 1 space.} Repeat between {} across ending with sc in the turning ch 2 space from the previous row. (40 sc & 39 ch 1 spaces)

Row 4-36: Repeat Row 3.

Edging: Work 1 round of sc around the entire piece. Ch 1, turn. Working across the top sc into the first sc, sc into the first ch 1 space. Continue working 1 sc into each sc and ch 1 space across ending with sc in the turning ch 2 space from the previous row. (78 sc)

Turn the corner, working down the side sc into each sp across. (36 sc)

Turn the corner, working across the bottom sc into each ch stitch across. (78 sc)

Turn the corner, working up the side sc into each sp across. (36 sc)
Join with a sl st to the first sc made. Tie off. Weave in ends.

Assembly: Stretch the back piece of the apron so that the width of the front piece of the apron and the back piece of the apron are about the same.
Count up 27 stitches from the bottom of the back piece of the apron, mark the 27th stitch with a stitch marker on both sides (right and left)
With 5.00mm hook and right side facing up join yarn with a sl st into the stitch marked on the left side of the back piece of the apron. Place the front piece of the apron right side facing up on top of the back piece. Join the two pieces by working a single crochet join around. 
Work your first single crochet join into the upper left corner sc of the front piece of the apron and then through the sc under the joining stitch on the back piece of the apron (working through all four loops). Continue working the single crochet join all the way around ending with a sl st into the stitch marked on the back piece of the apron on the right side. (130 sc) Tie off. Weave in ends.

Apron Strings

Starting out: With 5.00mm hook, ch 201.

Rnd 1: Work 2 sc into the 2nd ch from hook. {Ch 1, skip 1 ch, work 2 sc into the next ch.} Repeat between {} to end. Ch 1, work 2 additional sc in the end ch (this will turn the corner, you will now be working across the other side of the foundation ch). {Ch 1, skip 1 ch, work 2 sc into the next ch.} Repeat between {} to end (last ch will already have 2 sc from the other side). Ch1, join with sl st to the first sc made. Tie off. Weave in end.
Assembly: Fold the apron string in half to find the center. Cut a long string of yarn about two times the width of the apron. Line up the center of the apron string and the center top of the apron, right sides facing. Thread the long string of yarn onto the needle. Join the two pieces by working your first whipstitch through the center of the apron string and the center top of the apron. Pull the long string up about halfway. Working across the left side of the apron whipstitch the two pieces together, tie off. Thread the remaining long end of yarn left at the center of the apron onto the needle, working across the right side of the apron whipstitch the two pieces together, tie off. Weave in ends.
Finishing: Secure the front piece of the apron to the back piece of the apron by stitching through the center top stitch of the front piece of the apron and the stitch directly behind it on the back piece of the apron. Tie a knot, weave in ends.

Note: To prevent pulling at the center of the apron create a invisable seam with needle and thread.
Push your needle through the knot at the center of the apron. Work your needle and thread through the sc stitch on the back piece of the apron directly above the knot.
Then work your next stitch up through the ch 1 stitch beside the sc stitch.
Continue zig zagging stitches through the center sc stitches and up through the ch1 stitches. You will want your stitches to be snug but not tight! When you reach the top of the back piece of the apron work down the piece the same way you went up (back through the center stitches). Push through the joining knot and tie off.

  12. Reality is, there's no failing when it comes to mobile CPA advertising and marketing, there's only experimentation. If you run your own business there are several different
    ways that you can keep track of your records throughout the year so you are ready for tax time.

    You can solve any tax problem immediately if you have
    the right CPA working for you.
