Happy Friday, friends! I don’t know about you, but I plan to spend as much of my weekend as possible surrounded by yarn. I’ve got several projects that I’m working up, and I’d like to finish a few! One of those projects is actually this Marine Life blanket, which is so very close to completion. Earlier this week I lined my blanket with some delicate fleece, and all that’s left to do is to tack the two layers of fabric together with some yarn. One way or another, I will finish this blanket over the weekend, and I will definitely share some photos on Instagram when it’s all done!
This week we’re making one of my favorite squares this week for Part 4 of the CAL: a sea turtle! I absolutely adore how this square turned out. Heads up: the color changes are a bit more challenging for this square, but just be patient, use bobbins, and take your time, because the end effect is worth the effort!
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, Cypress and Bottle. 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.
Part 5 will be posted next Friday, October 5th.
For Part 5, you will need Stylecraft Special DK in colors Duck Egg (background color), Grey, White and Black.
