After the success of our last two mystery blankets I am so excited to share our second Christmas blanket crochet a-long. This year I have joined up with 23 other designers and trust me, the designs we have to show you will not disappoint. To follow along with our CAL head straight over to the main CAL page here.
Throughout the month of December we will be giving you the opportunity to download each pattern as it is released for the first 24hours. After that period each pattern will cost between $1- $1.50 through the designers personal page. But if you don’t feel like you have time to follow along with the blog hop daily, or if you have missed out on any of the patterns don’t worry. We have put together the option to purchase all of our patterns together in one convenient bundle for a limited time.
If you would like to join in on the CAL and receive your pattern for free today. Click the button below.
What Do I need?
For all the squares in our bundle the lovely people over at WeCrochet were kind enough to donate the yarn to all our designers so we could bring you this CAL. We will all be using Mighty Stitch worsted weight yarn.
This Square uses the colours, Love Letter (Main Colour), White (Colour A), Silver (Colour B)
Hook: 5.5 hook I used my Furls Streamline hook. If you suffer from wrist pain these hooks are invaluable!
Notions: Yarn needle, stitch marker, measuring tape, scissors.
4x 4= 13 x 14rows
After grabbing your coupon code head to my ravelry here to purchase the pattern for free.
