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!

Imagine or not this week we’re going to tackle a square from a new designer :) And I can tell you it’s sooo lovely and comes with a very well written pattern. Lovely Dedri from LookatwhatImade made again a phototutorial for the tricky bits just in case you need some help.

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 7 Eight Pointed Flower

Pattern of the week is Eight Ponted Flower by Julie Yeager

You’ll need:

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

My work-in-progress is hiding this week behind my yarn cake. Can you tell what I’m working on ;)

I really like the detail of this square

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!
