Week 21: CAL Blocks #61 #62 #63

#61 Nine Patch Granny
5 1/2″ square
To join I slip stitched into the 2 outer loops so the edges sat side by side, this was rather than ss through all four loops as the book instructs. I chained 2 over the first seam when going across the first set of seams. I always use a smaller hook when joining crochet (3mm hook instead of the usual 4mm.)
Oh and for the final round the book says to 1ch, 1 dc into each tr and ch round edge; I ignored this and just did 1 ch to begin then dcs around. There was a similar mistake for one of the previous blocks I think?

#62 Edged Square
5 – 5 1/2″ ‘square’ urgh! This puts me off the corner blocks.

#63 Random Patches
5 1/2″ square
Oh gawd! On the last colour change I realised I was working with 26 stitches not 28. Oh la! (But I was never starting again.)
Darnarama too!

I love my curly edged group pictures, there’s something that appeals to me maybe because they’re non-conformist?! ;-)

I think my fave is the Random Patches block this week.

How are you getting on? Which block are you working on?

  1. Looking at your colour changes on random patches, maybe mine are ok. The pictures in the book make them look like a sharp straight edge. Didn’t realise the mistake for nine patch granny, assumed it was dc’s all the way anyway!

      • You are right. On the picture of that block they are more visible. I was thinking of the one I was doing the other day, can’t remember its name now – couple of blocks before that.

I'd love to hear from you...
