Flower Garden Blanket Crochet ~ Along!
We are excited to be making this Flower Garden Blanket CAL with you!
This Flower Garden Blanket is great for yourself or as a gift. Let’s Crochet!
This Introduction Post will be updated twice a month (on Mondays) with the next part of the CAL. Each link will take you to the next part of the CAL. Please bookmark this post to find and return to it more easily. For the release dates please see below:
American Crochet is hosting a Blanket Crochet ~ Along (CAL). It can be made in several different sizes. We will be making 16 inch squares, 8 each of 2 different designs. The squares will have a dividing strip between them and a border completely around the blanket.
I will be sharing two squares with you over the course of the next few weeks – and you may CAL with the rest of us. Towards the end, I will tell you how to seam and edge them. This is your blanket therefore please choose colors for you or the recipient of the blanket. By the time we’re done you will have a 110” x 110” (or bigger or smaller) blanket to show off! Below are the colors and amounts I used for mine. Be sure you have enough yardage to make the blanket as not all yarn skeins are the same.
