*This is a self-paced project, so definitely go at the speed you feel most comfortable. The instructional videos and posts will be up forever and you will always be able to go back and watch again and again!


Because there are those of you who prefer a written pattern and those who prefer a video tutorial, below are both. Either way, be sure to check out the video for additional information, plus helpful tips too!

Here's this week's CAL video:



Instructions:

Ok so once your blanket has gotten to be as big as you'd like it to be, save some yarn for the edging!  Still not sure how big you want it?  Check out my blanket sizing guide below for help!


So, let's jump into that edging, shall we?

Edging Instructions:

Note: We're using the same 8.0 mm "L" hook and Super Saver Chunky yarn (same as blanket).  The edging is worked in just one round.

Round 1: Tie the new yarn into any corner space and chain 1.  *Work 4 sc into the corner space.  Work a sc into each stitch along the side of the square.  Repeat from * around the square.  Join with a sl st to close round.

Fasten off and weave in any ends that remain.


OK, let's take a quick peek at the schedule...so far we've gone over supplies, sizing, the blanket stitch tutorial, color changes, and edging.  Next week, we'll add all of those finishing touches:
