I am so excited to be joining in with this crochet along: The Vibrant Vintage CAL. The end result looks beautiful:
I can’t wait to have this in my house! This is the first CAL I have joined in with and I am so looking forward to getting on with it!
These are the yarns I have chosen for the project:
These are all Stylecraft Special DK yarns. Such a pretty sight!
I have spent the afternoon making the first square: Rebecca:
This is made with Stylecraft Special DK Kelly Green and 4.5mm hook.
It needs to be blocked, which will tidy it up a bit, but it is OK for a first attempt. The main stitch was a puff stitch, which wasn’t the easiest. I enjoyed having a go and learning how to do it though.
The way a CAL works is simple. The designed releases the pattern a little bit at a time. For this VVCAL, a new design is being released once a week. It began in the middle of January, so I am a little behind. I need to make one plain granny square to complete week 1.
Stay tuned to see the blanket grow!
