Patchwork Mystery CAL Week Ten

Patchwork Mystery CAL Week Ten

Week 10 is complete! This one is called the Rip Tides Square, designed by Sarah Thompson from Rich Textures Crochet. Find this week's pattern HERE. There is a lot to love about this square. For one, it is another one that is worked from the bottom up, rather than center out. Don't get me wrong, I have loved the center out ones too, but in a project like this, I am loving the occasional square that isn't made in the same direction. I also love the texture of this one. It looks so complicated, but it was actually very easy...

Week 9 is over already! This week's square was so much fun, and not just the making of it. This square was a collaboration effort from 2 different designers! Isn't it gorgeous? This square is called Belle's Enchanted Garden, and the name could not be more fitting. The center was designed by Marianne Hamill from Sunset Knots. You can find her HERE. The outside of the square was designed by Desiree Krahn from Tangerine Door Creations, and you can find her HERE. I just love the story of how this collaboration came together. Now, I dare you to tell me...

Patchwork Mystery CAL Week Eight

Week 8. This post has been challenging to even get around to writing, because the pattern is beautiful, but getting through it was a huge challenge for me this week. This week's square is called the Spring Pathways square created by CrochetALaDia. You can find the pattern HERE. First off the bat, I was absolutely thrilled to see a square worked in rows and a solid color, because so many squares have been worked in the round, so I love the idea of changing it up so this blanket really looks patchwork-y. (Do you like that word? I just now...

Okay, I gotta be honest here: this week's square was my favorite so far. The fun part about this is that this week's square, the Fairy Wing Flower square, was designed by Journey Chanel Designs, the mastermind behind the Patchwork Mystery CAL! You can find the pattern HERE. I love the fairy wing stitch, first of all. It seems so complicated at first, but is easy to remember the repeats, and looks so pretty when the round is complete. The square rounds look spectacular when finished, and also are easy to repeat for each round. What this means to me...

Its official, half of the patterns in the Patchwork Mystery Crochet-a-long have been released! I'm only slightly under halfway done, because I was originally planning to make 2 of each square, but now I've changed my mind and want to make 3 of each, so I'm just a few behind :) This week's square is the Garden Gate square by Tangerine Door Creations. If you want to make your own, you can find the pattern HERE What I really enjoyed about this one was all of the varying textures. This is the first square that has had instructions turn to...
