I know many of you have been eagerly waiting for Block #3 – and here it is! 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 – she’s even got a Dutch speaking Moogly CAL Facebook group going! 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! I can’t speak Dutch, but I know 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 with 6 colors. This square uses post stitches to create a fantastic pattern with texture and visual interest! Here’s the one I made, using all 6 of my colors:
Now for my notes!
- The only tricks to this pattern are post stitches, some of which are crossed as in crochet cabling – click on the links here for tutorials: Post Stitches; Crochet Cables.
- I got 12″ as written, but you should measure as you go, as everyone’s gauge is different! 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: All Odd Rows are White; Rnd 2: Raspberry; Rnd 4: Mustard, Rnd 6: Kelly Green, Rnd 8: Aqua, Rnd 10: Eggplant.
- If this one isn’t to your taste, you can find a list of alternatives HERE.
Thanks so much for crocheting-along with me!
