It’s Tuesday, which means it’s CAL time again :) As I mentioned before I joined a CAL and so far it’s been lots of fun! And as time is flying by right now we’re already 10! weeks into this CAL.

This is the simpliest and quickest of all the squares we’ve done so far. Lovely Dedri from LookatwhatImade made again a phototutorial for the tricky bits if you need some help. This square features a lovely butterfly stitch, which is similar to the bow-stitch I used for my bow-cowl last year.

So if you haven’t joined the CAL yet it’s still not too late to say hello to the Official CCC Social Group on Facebook, they’ll get you all the info you need and also post the pattern of the week every weekend (and they’re a lovely bunch of girls who help you with all crochet related questions, so even if you don’t want to join the CAL it’s worth joining the group!).

Week 10 Butterfly Garden Square

Pattern of the week is Butterfly Garden Square by Chris Simon

You’ll need:

  • 5 mm hook
  • yarn ”cake” of your choice ( I used Stylecraft Special DK in denim, mocha and parchment for my square)

If you want to follow my colour palette here is a little list of my colour choices, or a little help to get you going with your colours (and at this point I’m really sorry that the pictures of this weeks square haven’t turned out the way I wanted them to turn out! I made the square not on the same table I usually make them and only realised the stupid shadow when I got them off my camera. Lession learnt!) :

I would love to see how your square turned out so please feel free to link your end result to the CALs Flickr group or post it onto the CAL groups page. But a warning! Those two groups are MASSIVELY addictive and you’ll want to make more than just the lovely squares you’ll see there!

My friend Dedri, from lookatwhatImade, is also following the CAL (she is actually the person I blame for being “hooked” up in this CAL ;)), she is also using Stylecraft yarn but her colours are much more cheery, so feel free to hop over and have a look what she’s been up to.

And don’t forget to follow me on bloglovin to stay updated on what’s happening here :)

Happy Crocheting!

  1. Love the subtle colors you used in this block. Gives it a beauty that you can’t archive with bright colors. Don’t get me wrong I still live Dedri’s butterfly garden square! It’s just more. . . .spunky.
