Falling For Textures Blanket CAL

Textured Crochet 
Blanket

As Summer is over and it turns to Autumn its time for another blanket CAL! For those who missed our Winter Wonderland Blanket or don’t know, CAL is short for Crochet Along This time I am part of a 5 designer team working with the Pineapple and Pine CAL group. For 5 weeks each designer will be releasing 3 blanket squares that can be seamlessly combined to make a beautiful blanket.

How it works

Each week a new designer will be releasing 3 10 x 10 inch texture patterns for free on their blog, with an option to purchase a PDF format. For my squares, you will head back to this page to see the new squares as they release. Alternatively, if you do not want to wait to receive each design, or would just love to support the designers you can also purchase a bundle of all the patterns right now at a 50% discount!

The Yarn

The lovely team over at Wecrochet was kind enough to donate the yarn needed to create this project. We used approximately 4576yards of Mighty Stitch yarn in Cream. All the designs together will make a 50 x 70 inch blanket, but if you don’t want to make something quite as large head over to Kelsies page below, where she has detailed some alternative sizes and how many squares you will need to make.

Week 1

August 31st- September 6th

The first week was hosted by Kelsie of Crafting for Weeks. You can go over to her page to see the first three patterns and to learn a lot more detail about the CAL, as well as some alternative blanket sizes.
