I decided to jump into some crochet alongs but I didn't want to go out and buy new yarn (well not really that I didn't want to but that I SHOULDN'T buy new yarn :). I'm using up some skeins leftover from various projects so this will be a "Scrappy CAL".
The first (January Main) block of Ravelry's BAMCAL 2020 is called "Cheers!" and was designed by Polly Plum who is a marvelous pattern writer! The pattern says that it is "Advanced" and I had no problem whatsoever following along.
Do you like the pop of red? I'm not quite sure about it but the hubby said he likes it.
I'm going to add a round of white to every block and crochet them together with the red (probably) to tie them all together. Here it is finished off:
Well, finished off except for tying in all those ends. I'll get around to it sometime :)
The block turned out to be 12.5" before the border rounds. Polly Plum created a new stitch that she called the Treble W Stitch (Tr-W) which is tr, ch1, tr, ch1, tr. It was fun to learn :)
I was pleased with how it turned out!
Are you participating in any crochet alongs (CALs)? What are you working on?
