Like Voyager 1 zooming through space, we’re moving right along with this CAL!
In case you missed it, week 4 of the Solar System CAL is now available. Today we’ll start week 5, which mostly includes a bunch of void space–but also the orbit round for Uranus!
This week, we are making rounds 81-89 of the base blanket, as well as a couple of the inner planets! *cue the confetti*
Because I am releasing some of the planet patterns early, this will adjust the timeline for the CAL a little bit. I think I’ll remove the planets week altogether and instead just release a few at a time while we’re working on the base blanket. This means the last few weeks of the CAL may get shifted around a little bit! We may have an empty week, we may have three weeks of bonus appliques instead of two…we’ll see!
Today, I’m releasing the patterns for Mercury, Venus, and Mars. The pattern for Earth is a bit more complicated, and I want to make a video tutorial for that planet. A link to the planets page is shared further down on this page at the end of this week’s pattern but before the photos.
Anyways! Back to the base blanket. Rounds 81-89 took me approximately 4 hours to make. Scroll down a ways to see week 5’s section of the Solar System Blanket pattern!
So many of you have been tagging me in photos of your Solar System Blankets, and I really love seeing them! Feel free to tag Two Hearts Crochet on whichever social media platform you’re using, and don’t forget to use #SolarSystemCAL! I absolutely love seeing all of your photos, so keep sharing them!
Ready for more? Let’s do it!
