Moving on to Block #6! I'm so happy to announce that from here on out, the block patterns are being professionally tech edited, so hopefully it will just get better and better. 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!

Above are the originals, featuring lots of color possibilities! This square has a unique start and is fun to make! Here's the one I made, using all 6 of my colors:
Now for my notes!
- This square does have an unusual start, working in wedges to create the "sun" in the center. There are also some interesting stitches with a photo tutorial! It's a great mix of standard and new!
- My square was going to be bigger than 12", so I did Rnd 6 of the working in Rnds portion in dc instead of tr, and 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: Rows 1-16 Eggplant; Rnd 1-2 Aqua; Rnd 3 Kelly Green; Rnd 4 Mustard; Rnd 5-6 Raspberry; Rnd 7 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!
