Ginny’s Grannies CAL part 6 is here! This month we finish the third side of the outer section granny squares. Motif 23 was so fun to design; it drove me a bit batty, but it ended up so cool. There are some really nifty motifs in this group. I hope you enjoy making them as much as I enjoyed designing them.

Turkish Lif Scrubby – a fun stitch for cleaning away!

| CAL, Cascade Yarns, Crochet, Free, Kitchen & Bath, Size 3 Yarn

Use the Turkish Lif Scrubby to bring some style to and clean up your kitchen. The Turkish lif stitch is fun to make and easy to learn with all the step by step photos provided with this pattern. Try using a variegated or color changing yarn such as the Cascade Yarns Paradigm Shift used in my samples. You can also change colors to create a few rounds of different colors to match your decor or even to show team spirit. Just have fun, isn’t that what crafting is all about?

Little Squares, Big Squares, Diamond Squares – Ginny’s Grannies CAL Part 5

Ginny’s Grannies CAL part 5 puts us half way through the CAL. It’s getting pretty big. I think it would look cool like this with a border, but we’re not done yet. I love that there are several points on this blanket where you can stop and maybe just add a border to finish it off a little differently. But really, keep going, it just gets more fun!

It’s time to start the outer granny section of the Ginny’s Grannies blanket, and this is going to be so fun! I’ve loved designing all these granny squares to share with you. There are several different styles with several different variations. In the Ginny’s Grannies CAL Part 4 and over the next several months we will work our way around the blanket with these squares – and even a few rectangles. Then we’ll add a final border.

Around and around we go! Time for the border of the inner section of the Ginny’s Grannies Blanket CAL. This is a great part to make while binge watching your favorite show. It’s very simple, and I love the look it creates. If you want a baby blanket, this is a great place to stop, and if you want a couch throw, you can finish to this point with a thicker yarn and larger hook.

This month we will finish the granny sampler center of the Ginny’s Grannies CAL. This is just the center, and it is already fabulous! Next month we’ll add a border to the center, then there will be even more awesomeness to come.

If you are looking for something to fill your days, you can make the CAL up to this point and then make the border next month as a baby blanket. If you use a larger yarn and hook, it can even be a throw. So grab your stash and make Parts 1 & 2 a couple times!

Classic crochet stitches are great to know, and the linen stitch is by far a favorite of mine. It makes such a wonderful fabric and you can do so much with it by playing with color changes. The way I have used it in the October section of the Janet’s Garden CAL, it makes cute little dots!

Wavy Crochet Fun – Janet’s Garden CAL September

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

Wavy crochet fun is what I have in store for you with this month’s Janet’s Garden CAL section. This part makes some slightly popped waves that I enjoyed designing. This is another section that will need a good bit of blocking. If it’s still a little wavy after blocking, don’t fret; October’s section will get it in shape and you can block again then.

Broken Rib Crochet Washcloth – Part of the 2019 CAL Central Washcloth CAL

| CAL, Crochet, Free, Kitchen & Bath, Size 3 Yarn

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

The Broken Rib Crochet Washcloth was inspired by my love for the broken rib knit stitch. I figured out how to get a similar look in crochet and it makes me so happy! This washcloth has great texture so it feels great and looks pretty as well. Pamper yourself while adding some lovely style to your home spa supplies. This pattern is listed as intermediate, however that is only because post stitches are considered intermediate. If you can make post stitches, then this should be an easy pattern for you.

Crochet Heart Stitch and Crochet Rose Stitch – Janet’s Garden CAL August

| CAL, Crochet, Kraemer, Size 3 Yarn

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

Crochet heart stitch? Crochet rose stitch? That’s right, summer’s coming to a close and so we’re remembering the warmth with roses and hearts. These two stitch patterns are very sweet and can be incorporated into so many other projects. They are also fun to make.

The crochet heart stitches are made by working over shell stitches. The roses are made with popcorn stitches, which are one of the few stitches that require you to remove your crochet hook from your stitches. They also use dc cluster stitches for the leaves.

V-Stitch crochet is one of my favorite crochet techniques. It’s fast and so easy to make, plus it looks really nice. In July the Janet’s Garden CAL will grow using the double crochet v-stitch. If you are playing around with colors, then this is the perfect month to have some fun with color changes.

Is it time for a break? I know last month’s CAL rounds were a bit…intense. May’s rounds of the Janet’s Garden CAL feature easy crochet eyelet rounds. Made in just one color May gives you a nice break from some of the more intricate sections of this sampler blanket. Next month is going to be a bit more involved, so take the break while you can!

This month we are going to complete 2 sections of the Janet’s Garden Blanket. Both sections feature post stitches, which you can learn more about HERE. The first section gives a knit look, and the second makes a nifty zig-zag. It will be important to block each of these sections to get a nice look on your finished blanket.

Now that you’ve made the center square of your blanket, it’s time to turn it on its side! That’s right, we’re making the sides into the corners and the corners into the sides. It’s way easier then it sounds, and super fun! Once you learn how to do this, you will be shifting squares left and right!
