Soooooo I’ve an confession I actually finished this CAL blanket a good few week ago for my brother and his partners 30th birthday, and I’ve just not had a chance to share with you the completed blanket. So here it is….
CAL Crochet Blanket A Block A Week 2014
Hook | 5mm
Yarn | Stylecraft Special DK in Mocha, White and Raspberry
Blocks | can be found here
I didn’t really set the blocks out in any particular order as I liked the randomness (plus I was tight on time to get it finished) I did though place all the puffy/more textured blocks in a cross in the middle.
The Border | I simply spent hours on pinterest but eventually decided on two rows of double crochet (uk treble), a V Stitch row, another double crochet row and then simply a single crochet (uk double crochet) in a contrasting colour. and I was quite happy with the outcome.
So for something that has taking me a good year in the making I am very happy with the completed blanket and I was very sad to see it leave, but I do know the recipients love it as much as I loved making it!
If you have like following this CAL on my blog why not visit us over on the offical CCC facebook page and give some a go.
