2020 Fall CAL, Week 4: Autumn Textures Blanket


Welcome to the 2020 Fiber Flux Fall Crochet Along...hooray! Today is week 4 of the CAL and we're working on the gorgeous Autumn Textures Blanket! This is a very easy and fabulously cozy blanket that is an amazing addition to your home for fall!

Here's what we'll be doing today:
  • Weaving in all of those ends
  • Adding tassels to each of the four corners
  • Schedule of the CAL
  • Where to connect with other makers

The CAL will be divided over the next few weeks, so we'll tackle each part bit by bit. Scroll down for the schedule with actual dates and what we'll be doing on each day/week.

Let's get started shall we?  For today's part of the CAL, you'll just need some scissors and a tapestry needle.

  • Begin by weaving in ends...try going in one direction with the tail, then in the other direction to help "lock" it into place.  Also be sure to stay in the same color area with your tail (orange tail stays in the orange stripe area for example)
  • If you would like to add tassels, I added one to each blanket corner.
  • Begin by cutting two pieces of matching yarm each about 12 inches long.
  • Wrap yarn around all four fingers, about 12 times.
  • Tie yarn through at the top of the bundle and add a secure knot.
  • Tie yarn around the bundle about 1/4 of the way down.
  • Trim straight across at the bottom.
  • Tie to the corner of the blanket.
  • Repeat for other tassels.
That's it!  Enjoy your gorgeous fall blanket!
