Well, today is a major milestone for the Marine Life CAL–it’s the release of the final square!
For Part 12 of the CAL, we’re making the very last square design for the blanket: the angler fish. This little guy is equal parts cute and creepy. I love angler fish and knew that I had to make one for this blanket…and I am so happy with how he turned out!
Even though this is the last square of the blanket, we have much more to cover in this CAL. The last 3 weeks of the CAL will cover how to prep your squares for joining, how to make the decorative ripple stitch panels, what do to with your ends, how to back your blanket, etc.–there will even be some bonus squares if you want to add to your blanket!
Fallen a bit behind? No worries! You can find all of the parts of this blanket on the main project page here–just scroll down to the bottom of the page to see all of the parts of the blanket that are currently available!
New to graphghans? That’s okay! Click here to learn more about Graphghan Boot Camp: a self-paced, online course that will teach you everything you need to know to make this project (and even design your own). There’s still plenty of time to sign up and learn!
To make this square, you’ll need Stylecraft Special DK yarn in Storm Blue, Bottle, Cypress, Jaffa and Sunshine. For a full list of colors for the entire CAL, click here.
Don’t forget: I’ve used C2C, Stylecraft Special DK yarn, and a G/4.00mm hook. You can use whichever hook, stitch, or yarn you please, but note that your finished project size may differ from mine.
For this CAL, I’ve made graphs with arrows designed for use with the C2C or mini C2C stitch. There are two versions of the graph: a left-handed version (start in the lower left-hand corner) and a right-handed version (start in the lower right-hand corner). Note that there are no written instructions for this CAL, just graphs!
I’d love to see photos of your progress as you work on this project! Feel free to share on social media using the hashtag #marinelifecal.
So what’s next? We’ll spend the next few weeks finishing our squares, working the decorative panels, and adding the finishing touches to the blanket, so stay tuned for more!
Part 13 will be posted on Friday, December 7th.
