CAL: week 8

Hello everyone!  I’m getting my post done at 12:01 anyway, despite thinking I’d be a little late.  I hope you guys are ready! And remember, we’re using US terms!

Last week we finished with row 54:



row 55

With new color, hdc across.

rows 56-58

Using another color that you have a lot of, repeat the three rows of the bobble pattern.  If you need a refresher, check back to week 4 for the instructions.

row 59

With new color, hdc across.

row 60

With new color, dc across.

row 61

With new color, hdc across.

row 62

With new color, dc across.

Here’s all of these rows in a close-up:


And here is the whole blanket:


It’s getting harder and harder to photograph the whole thing!  And I do apologize for not having photos for each row; I mean to, but I really get going and I forget to stop and take them!  I’ll try harder to remember next time, haha.  However, if I’m crocheting at night, there’s not really a point as the lighting is so poor and makes for very oddly colored photos.

We’re still getting new participants who are working very diligently to catch up.  Welcome, newcomers!  If anyone has questions, feel free to ask.  You might like to peruse my post “how the CAL will work” for the basics.  All of the CAL posts can be found (in reverse order) in the CAL category, which can be located in the top menu bar of this site or by clicking on the button in the sidebar on the right hand side of the page.  Also, we’d love to see your pictures on the facebook page, the Ravelry group, or with the hashtag #nyaccal on Instagram — it’s so cool to see everyone’s blankets progressing!

Also, a huge thank you to everyone who’s shared this CAL on their own blogs, on forums, on facebook, or any other way you’ve spread the word.  I really appreciate it and I know that without you sharing this, we would not have nearly so many participants!

That’s all for this week’s CAL post.  I hope you all are still enjoying both the process of making the blanket and the way it’s turning out!

  2. It’s looking fabulous! Love the colors.


  3. I messed up the Catherine Wheel in week 7 and had to do lots of ripping, but I’m finally caught up. I don’t use ravelry or instagram, so I hope you don’t mind me posting my pic here — please let me know if I should refrain from doing so in the future! 🙂


  4. Hi I know people will be using different colours from you but for those of us who are using the same would it be at all possible for you to say what colour you’ve used each row as its quite difficult to tell from the photos? Please!
