Last week we completed Sophie’s Universe, but luckily the CAL isn’t over just yet. This week we have the option to extend Sophie with two additional squares Jack and Lydia. I have made two videos showing how to make these squares. You can find them on the dedicated video page of my blog.
You need 18 squares in total and then you are ready to attach them to Sophie, 9 on each end. I used the zipper join to connect them because I want to match the end created with the back-post stitches on the last round. If you don’t like this join, simply use another one. Dedri has given a few options on her blog. Of course I have also made a video showing how to connect these squares to Sophie. 🙂 Also this video you can find on the dedicated video page of my blog.
So after all that work, what does Sophie look like? Here some pics to give you an idea. I have given my Sophie’s Universe the name ‘A beautiful mess’ because that just about describes my color planning. There was no color planning 😀 I literally took it one round at a time looking at which yarn I had available. My main goal was to finish off all those leftover yarn that I have from previous projects. I definitively succeeded on that part. Almost no leftovers anymore which gives me a good excuse to buy new yarn!
If you would like to buy yarn packs for making these lovely squares, Deramores now has color packs available for Lydia in Cotton 8, Softfun and Stonewashed XL (expected soon), and Jack in Cotton 8, Softfun, and Stonewashed XL (coming soon). These yarn packs match the original packs for Sophie’s Universe.
Have a wonderful week making all these squares. See you next time!
