It’s Tuesday, which means that it’s CAL time again :) As I mentioned before I joined a CAL and the two squares were soooo much fun! Was hard to wait for the next one. And once again Kimberly did a great job with choosing a pattern. (I think I’m starting to repeat myself ;)) This week is again an intermediate square. I personally didn’t find it too tricky, but for anyone who needs some help with the tricky bits has lovely Dedri’s tutorial which makes it easy as a breeze, even for beginners.

Anyways for anyone who wants to join the CAL it’s still not to 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!).

CAL square week 3

Week 3 Starburst Flower Square

Pattern of the week is Starbust Flower Square by Donna Mason-Svara aka Smoothfox. Check out her blog, it has tons of amazing granny square patterns on it!

You’ll need:

  • 5 mm hook
  • yarn”cake” of your choice ( I used Stylecraft Special DK in denim, meadow and parchment for my square, I know I’m being boring with using the same colours as last week :))

  1. Hi, I would like to join the One Block a Week CAL. Are you on Ravelry or how do we receive the patterns?

      Hi Sonia,
      all the patterns are available on Ravelry, but the “pattern release” etc. is all happening in the facebook group.
      Hope that helps :) Looking forward to see your squares :)
