I’ve decided to join a year long crochet along. Well, almost a year. Basically, we start today and work one square every couple of weeks and in November we piece them all together. This is the first square pattern released, designed by the host of the CAL, Keep Calm and Crochet On UK. I’ve chosen colors that my son likes and plan on making this for him. He’s 3, but I hope it will become a keepsake.
Follow along at KC&COUK’s blog.
Yay so it’s time for block 1!!! How exciting!!! AND it’s my first design for 2015 so super exciting!!! You can tell how excited I am by the abundance of exclamation marks!!!
Yes I thought that I would have a go at designing the first block for the CAL, I wanted it to be fun, yet simple to ease us into the CAL process. Believe it or not this was the first 12 inch square I have EVER made or designed and it was sooo enjoyable after designing many 6 inch ones. It seemed huge too but, I tell you what, it some how seemed so much more satisfying when I’d finished it. Hope you enjoying hooking it up too – I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!!
This square will be available as a free Ravelry download forever or scroll down the page to where I have also posted the pattern below.
