CAL A Block A Week 2014, Crochet

CAL – Week 25 Addie – Week 26 Firenze – Week 27 Dalliance – Week 28 Katharine’s Rose

Afternoon lovelies I am very sorry I’ve not really kept up with posting I’ve been a bit busy with an order and teething toddlers…the tooth did pop eventually and orders have been posted so I’ve had a week of catch up with my CAL blocks.

So here they are….

August CAL catch up 25-28

So as before here are the details, its never to late to join! To find out more visit the Facebook Group Official CCC Social Group. The past blocks can be found here and this CAL wouldn’t be without the talented Dedri’s tutorials which go hand in hand with each block pattern every week. So here are my attempts the last few weeks:

Addie Square (week 25)

Hook: 5mm
Pattern: by Melissa Green
Yarn: Stylecraft Special DK in Raspberry, Mocha and White
Notes: I love the spikes in this block but it doesn’t completely lie flat at the moment which is annoying I’m hoping it will after blocking.

Firenze Square (Week 26)

Hook: 5mm
Pattern: by Julie Yeager Designs
Yarn: Stylecraft Special DK in Raspberry, Mocha and White
Notes: This block is so pretty but it took alot of concentration and a couple of nights but so worth it don’t you think?

Dalliance (Week 27)

Hook: 5mm
Pattern: by Margaret MacInnis
Yarn: Stylecraft Special DK in Raspberry, Mocha and White
Notes: This block was fairly easy to work up but it’s not one of my favourites to look at I’m afraid but does go pretty well with the others. I chose option A for this block.

Katharine’s Rose (week 28)

Hook: 5mm
Pattern: by Melinda Miller
Yarn: Stylecraft Special DK in Raspberry, Mocha and White
Notes: The Rose is my favourite part of this block, and the cable stitch wasn’t as daunting as it sounded, and worked up lovely. I did take Dedri’s advice and I used here row 18, which can be found on her blog to help make the block as square as possible.
