STARDUST MELODIES CAL
The Stardust Melodies CAL is hosted by Polly Plum's Posse and can be found at www.everytrickonthehook.com . All the blocks (both free and paid) will be based around a classic song.
There will be 12 free pattern that will be released on Mondays and 12 paid patterns that are released on Thursdays. I decided that I'm only going to crochet the free patterns but will be making 4 blocks of each pattern in 4 different colors.
As I started the first block, I didn't see the pattern emerge right away but as I continued on it became clear. This is just the Begin the Beguine block without an edging.
I also decided that I would add 2 rounds of edging, one in cream and one in mushroom. I want my finished afghan to be fairly large and adding the border will give me even more dimension.
The block itself was easy to make but the first was a bit tedious, as there is counting throughout. 1, 1-2-3.... over and over. As I made the second, third and especially the fourth block, I had the pattern down pretty well and was able to watch Property Brother and House Hunters while making it :)
Please leave me a comment with a link so I can return the visit!!
