The Friendship Blanket CAL


This post contains affiliate links 

 I'd like to let you all know about a new CAL (crochet along) that is starting... NOW!

The Friendship Blanket CAL is the brainchild of Helen from Sunflower Cottage Crochet. 30 designers have teamed up to bring you 40 squares! Each square will be 9 inches, uses worsted weight yarn, and can be assembled to make a blanket. Pick and Mix which squares you want to make! The running theme is texture - and friendship!


What yarn to use?

The patterns are written for Worsted/Aran Weight yarn- some suggestions are:

Paintbox Simply Aran  100% Acrylic, 100g/3.5 oz - 60 colours to choose from!

Yarn and Colours Epic - 100% cotton, 50g -101 shades of pure cotton!

What am I using?

I'm using a yarn found at the Australian chain 'Spotlight' called

Spot Saver USA style (200 g/100% acrylic) 

I'll be using pumpkin (pictures) Peacock and Grey. 

How to join in?

I'll be updating this post every few days to update the new square releases, you can also follow Sunflower Cottage- the host of the CAL

Helen's Square kicks things off - you can find the pattern of the first square: the Friendship Square, here on the Sunflower Crochet Blog. 

If you'd like to read Helen's original post, that kick's off the CAL - click here.

All squares will remain free for the duration of the CAL. 

You can use the tag #Friendshipblanket21 to see what others are posting on social media.


Of course, I jumped at the opportunity to join in, but you'll have to wait to see my square! 


And, for those who just can't wait - there is the option of purchasing the entire CAL right now. You can click this link for the bundle (affiliate link)
