Solar System CAL Week 4: Rounds 67-80

img_3850

Having fun yet?

In case you missed it, week 3 of the Solar System CAL is now available. I can’t believe we’re already into week 4 of this crochet along–that means we’re about one third of the way there!

This week, we are making rounds 67-80 of the base blanket. As far as design is concerned, it’s a pretty straightforward, “boring” week, as there are no bobbles, no corona pieces, and no planets (yet!) to make. But “boring” is good! You’re making solid progress on your base blanket, making room for planets later on. Rounds 67-80 took me approximately 6 hours to make. Scroll down a ways to see week 4’s section of the Solar System Blanket pattern!

I’m still hoping to release some of the planet patterns soon–I may even release the first few early next week! Keep checking back here for more info (or just follow along on the Two Hearts Crochet social media pages).

Lots of folks have been tagging me in photos of their Solar System Blankets, and I really love seeing them! Please feel free to tag Two Hearts Crochet on whichever social media platform you’re using…and don’t forget to use #SolarSystemCAL! I love seeing your photos, so keep ’em coming!

Less talk, more crocheting, right? Let’s do this! *cue awesome theme music*

Isn’t the contrast between the bobbles, the void, and the orbits just lovely?

  1. I’m really enjoying the CAL, it looks great. However mine is working out much bigger. It measures 40 inch diameter after week 3. Would it be possible to have dimensions each week?

    1. Hi Cher–it sounds like you may need to buy more. I had some problems calculating the blue color yardage, and I’m afraid my numbers may have been off. If you have a full skein left, you may be okay, but if you’re at half or less, you may need to buy more. Apologies!
