To read about the Jake’s Blankie CAL (Crochet ALong) and to find the links to each week’s post, click here. The intro post will also give you all the yarn info for the blanket, and other links that may help. I have created an event in my Facebook page to share photos and ask questions. You can find the event here.
For week 4 of our CAL we will be making the second of 4 Kismet Squares. At that point you will be half way done with the squares for your blanket.
If you need a refresher on the Join As You Go method, find that here.
Make one Kismet Square as follows: Starting with color A, make every other square A and then B ~ So for the center Jacob’s square the odd rounds will be color A and the even rounds will be color B, then for the Kismet square continuation the odd rounds will be color B and the even rounds will be color A. On final round, join square #6 next to square #5 and under squares #1 and 2 in the following manner:
Crochet the first side of the final round up to the corner, make the first ch of the ch 2 corner normally, join the next ch to the bottom left ch-2 corner of square #5, join the next 43 sc to the 43 sc on the left side of square #4, join the first corner ch to the join of squares # 5 and 3, join the second corner ch to the join of squares #2 and 3, join the next 21 sc in the pattern to the 21 sc at the bottom of square #2, join the next sc in the pattern to the joined corners of squares #1 and 2, join the next 21 sc in the pattern to the 21 sc at the bottom of square #1, join the first ch of the ch 2 corner into the bottom right corner of square #1. Finish off the square as it is written and weave in all ends.
Here’s another color option!
