Don’t forget what 8 is for! It’s the square for this week! If this is the first you’ve heard of the 2015 Moogly Afghan CAL, please CLICK HERE to read how it works! In summary, every 2 weeks I’ll share a new free 12″ crochet block pattern, and we’ll all make them together. All the patterns will be free all year long, and we’ll get to visit a variety of fantastic crochet blogs along the way!
Once again, I’d like to thank Elke Wellens who is providing Dutch translations to all the designers – if you speak Dutch, check out the Dutch speaking Moogly CAL Facebook group! And a big thank you to allatti2d, Angela2011, HelenJE, and Patricia-R-S, who are moderating the Ravelry group for the 2015 Moogly CAL! Click either of those links to check the groups out! The Ravelry group is a BIG source of help if you need it!
The post for each of the blocks will go live here on Moogly at 10am Central time on their specified date. Click the links in the schedule to catch up on past blocks!

Above is the original, made in 6 colors! This square has a traditional construction, with a fun floral pop! I had to break with my usual color plan to celebrate this lovely pattern. Here’s the one I made, using all 6 of my colors:
Now for my notes!
- There are link to tutorials that might help you in the pattern! It’s a fun pattern, and not too difficult, but be sure to count your stitches as you!
- After the first 8 rounds I was at 10″, so I added one more round of dc, worked the same way as the previous round. And I got 12″ on the nose! But everyone is different so be sure to measure as you go! Learn more about adjusting for size HERE. Remember that the 12″ is measured across and up and down – not diagonally corner to corner.
- I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, and my color order was as follows: Rnd 1-4: Aqua; Rnd 5: Kelly Green, Raspberry, and Eggplant; Rnd 6: Eggplant; Rnd 7: Kelly Green; Rnd 8: Mustard; Rnd 9: Raspberry; Extra Rnd: White.
- If this one isn’t to your taste, you can find a list of alternatives HERE.
Thanks so much for crocheting-along with me!
