It’s the penultimate block for 2015 – the year has flown by so fast! Please note that the last block will be shared on November 25th – a day early, due to American Thanksgiving!
If you’re just now getting started, don’t worry – you’ll find links to all the previous posts for the CAL in the schedule below! Plus, they’ll stay free forever, so you can catch up into 2016, 2017… whenever you like. 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! Even though after 2015 the group may not be active, it will be a fantastic reference, so be sure to visit if you have questions with any of the squares.
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 Rhelena’s square, in 4 colors! Here’s the one I made, using all 6 of my colors:
Now for my notes!
- To print this pattern or create a downloadable PDF, enter the pattern page URL into PrintFriendly.com.
- Be sure to read through the notes and special stitch instructions at the beginning of the pattern.
- My square was coming out a little bit small, so I added a round of dc after Round 11, and then it came out at 12″. 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: Raspberry; Rnd 2: Mustard; Rnd 3: Kelly Green; Rnd 4: Aqua; Rnd 5-6: Eggplant; Rnd 7: Raspberry; Rnd 8: Mustard; Rnd 9: Kelly Green; Rnd 10: Aqua; Rnd 11: Eggplant; (extra added row of dc: Eggplant); Rnd 12: White.
- If this one isn’t to your taste, you can find a list of alternatives HERE, and another, newer list of alternatives HERE!
Thanks so much for crocheting-along with me!

Thank you! 🙂
Can’t believe we are almost to the end!! I know last year you mentioned that you added an extra row of single crochet to the squares to get to 41 stitches on each square. Is that something you will do again? Will you do 41 again or a different number? Thanks for the feedback. I can’t wait to start joining mine! (Especially since last years is still in pieces. Oops!)
The year has flown by! I need to start planning 2016 soon! 😀 So re: the 41 sts/side. I came up with that number because I actually counted how many stitches I had on each square side already, and then found the average (or a number close to it that would work well). I haven’t counted the stitches on the sides of the blocks so far, but I guess I’ll be doing so soon! If they are all very close, I might even skip the extra round, as this time I planned ahead a little better and finished each block with a round of white yarn.
Where will I find all the block instructions. I just got started on the series
There is a list of links to each of the patterns right here in the post! 🙂
Beautiful block pattern and I love your colours!
😀 Thank you!
