If you are crocheting the Wonder Crochet Blanket CAL with us this year then take a look at this post!
After reviewing some feedback that several of you have given regarding having additional rows to grow your blanket and/or to exchange some of the open rows. With that in mind I decided it would be nice to supply two additional sections you can use.
You may use this as an alternative or addition for any section of the CAL – or leave them out completely. Just be sure when finishing up the next section starts on the RS of the project (the pretty side of your work).
Hopefully the alternate section(s) will also be beneficial for those of you who are planning to add some additional length to your blanket.
Wonder Crochet Blanket CAL!
This CAL started on January 7, 2016 and is scheduled to go live, twice a month on Thursday, until November 3, 2016. For specific details regarding the CAL, groups links, and including links to each Section of the blanket please check out our Introductory Post which you can find ** HERE **. You may also join in on our group chats regarding the blanket (for showing your progress and for encouragement) and create your own project page on Ravelry.
Wonder Blanket CAL ~ Alternate Sections
I have designed two alternate sections for the Wonder Blanket CAL. If there are some sections that you do not wish to incorporate into your CAL these can be used. The color change is your choice. As you can see it looks great as one color although, if you are changing colors every row as some crocheters are this will look nice also.

Half Double Crochet: 9 rows = 3 inches
Double Crochet: 5 rows = 3 inches
