And we are off! Finally we have started with week 1 of Around the Bases CAL. You can find the original English design on Keito Palette. I also have a Dutch translation for you, just in case it’s easier for you. If you need any extra help, here is a video tutorial. All tutorials for Around the Bases will stay up indefinitely and you can find them on my dedicated video page.
Please note that there is a tiny difference between the video and the pattern in the corner of round 4. This is because on review the pattern was changed slightly and I had already made the video. The stitches are all still the same, just written differently. In the video I make (sc, ch1, sc) in the corner and then a sc in the first stitch. In the pattern this was later changed to (sc, ch1, 2sc) in the corner. You are still making 3 stitches in total, so all is well 🙂
I am using Scheepjes Linen Soft yarn in the following colors
- round 1 – 628 pastel pink
- round 2 – 628 pastel pink
- round 3 – 630 white
- round 4 – 630 white
Just look at the lovely result! I love the Linen Soft yarn. It has a rugged feel to it, tough on the outside but sweet on the inside.
Did you hit a home run this week or were you touching bases over the week? Be sure to share your results in the Facebook group CAL – Crochet A Long and/or Ravelry group Around the Bases. We would all love to see.
