We love a CAL at Seeded so we are going to join in with this fabulous one from Janie Crowfoot.
The Sunshine & Showers crochet along (CAL) project was featured in the first 13 issues of Crochet Now magazine between March 2016 and April 2017. Using the months of the year as the design theme the crochet blanket project was designed by Jane Crowfoot and was originally released as a mystery crochet along – which means that the design was not revealed completely until the end of the project. Each month of the year saw the release of a new pattern within the magazine.
The Sunshine & Showers crochet along project was very successful over it’s first year of release so, now that the patterns revert to us here at Janie Crow, we have decided it would be a good idea to do it all over again!
Unlike all my previous CAL designs, this one is worked as a sampler so that you will be working lots of different stitches and techniques in rows of crochet.
What level of expertise do you need?
I have designed the blanket so that it starts pretty easy. To complete the first part of the design you will need to know how to make a chain, how to work double crochet stitches, half treble stitches and treble stitches.
This project is not aimed at complete beginners and there is an assumption that you know your basic stitches and terminology. When an unusual or slightly complicated technique is featured the patterns include step bt step images and short written tutorials. For basic stitch terms and tutorials we advise you to look on Youtube or a crochet techniques book or publication.
The Sunshine & Showers blanket is made using Stylecraft Special DK in a range of 15 shades. The project uses 1 x 100g ball of each shade and we will be offering these packs at a special price at Seeded.
You will possibly a combination of the following hook sizes:
3.5mm, 4mm, 4.5mm & 5mm hooks
Please bring a copy of the pattern with you and as ever complementary rrefreshments are avaliable on the day.
Hope you can join in with us - dont forget to book all the dates for these sessions!
