CAL 2017

Week 4

cal 2014 (4)

Supplies

  • Cotton 8 yarn, colour 721 from kit 1 or colour 649 from kit 2
  • crochet hook 3 mm
  • a pair of scissors
  • darning needle

Stitches used (US terms)

  • Double crochet
  • Chain
  • Slip stitch

Tips

  • Read through the pattern at least once before you start.
  • Feel free to use any colour (but leave colour 726 from kit 1 and 717 from kit 2; these are the colours that you have 4 balls of).
  • The aim of this CAL is to let out your creative side, so choose any colours you like! You can even combine multiple colours in one square.
  • Use the invisible join method to finish your square, as described in the Tips & Tricks PDF. This ensures that all sides of your square are exactly the same, which will make crocheting them together at the end a lot easier.
  • Sew in the ends right after you finish your square.
  • To get the best result, block your squares. You can find more info on how to do this in the Tips & Tricks PDF.
  • If you want to print the pattern, please only print page 4. This is a special page, designed to use the least amount of ink and of course paper.
  • Have fun! :)

Finished blocked square measures around 7 inches/18 cms.
