CAL A Block A Week 2014, Crochet

CAL – Week 14 Autumn Clusters & 15 More V’s Please

So I have being crocheting my CAL blocks but not actually posting them to the blog oops! So here are the last two weeks I promise I’ll try and keep a little more up to date with them the next few weeks.

Autumn Clusters – week 14

Pattern – Autumn Clusters by Aurora Suominen
Hook – 5mm
Yarn – Stylecraft special DK in White, Mocha, Raspberry

Notes – I found this one a little tricky as I redid round 5 (just after the flower) a couple of times as it didn’t look quite right and I also found round 7 a little hard to understand and I ended up working the stitches into the top of the cluster and in the chain spaces, this looked right to me so I continued. I like the fluffiness and feel of this block but I’m not sure about my white round after the middle flower perhaps I should have used the mocha. Oh well see what you think below.

Don’t forget to pop over to  Dedri’s tutorial on her blog Look at what I made or loopsan’s blog to see her beautiful blocks.

And so…

More V’s Please – week 15

more v's pls whole closer

Pattern – More V’s Please by Melinda Miller
Hook – 5mm
Yarn – Stylecraft special DK in White, Mocha, Raspberry

Notes –  This is the block I managed to make over the Easter weekend with my sister in law working her block up the same time, so a little bit of motivation to finish to compare, mine was a little smaller but should stretch out when I attempt blocking! I actually managed to work this one up very quickly in one evening and I really like the stripy colours I’ve chosen. (Modest aren’t I!)

And so Ta Dah!
