We're pulling into the final stretch with Block #19! There will be LOTS of posts for the Crochet-a-long over the next couple of months - the last few blocks, lots of joining ideas and techniques, and we'll have to figure out what to do for 2015! And I'll trying to come up with the best way for everyone to show off their finished afghans too! But if this is the first you've heard of the 2014 Moogly Afghan Crochet-a-Long, then start HERE to read how it works - if you crochet fast, there's still time to join in!
Need to catch up? Here is the CAL schedule, with links to the previous blocks (click on the date to go to that blog post):
January 8th - Anticipation Mystery Square
October 2nd, 16th, and 30th
November 13th and 25th
(Click the name of the pattern above to go to the web archive page for this pattern - the original site is down, but the archive is still up!)
Above is the original, made with 2 colors. Bold indeed! It is a great companion to the OpArt Square, as well as Dayna's other squares, as well as the BLO sts in Dalliance! Below is mine, made with 4 colors:
Now for my notes!
- Moogly tutorial that might help you: BLO
- The pattern itself is well written, and I found no errors! Easy peasy!
- As always, be sure to measure! After Round 12 I was only at 11.5", so I added a Round 13 of BLO sc in each st, working 3 sc in each corner.
- My color pattern was as follows: Round 1-2 Red; Round 3-4 Green; Round 5-6 Blue; Round 7-8 White; Round 9-10 Red; Round 11-12 Green; (extra) Round 13 Blue.
