Around the Bases CAL week 6

around the bases cal week 6

We have arrived at week 6 of Around the Bases CAL, a week you are either going to love or going to hate. We are working like a zillion back post single crochets! Although it is a lot of work the result is lovely because it turns the stitch forward giving a lovely edge. Here the video showing how to make week 6.

If you want to go back you can find all the videos on my Around the Bases CAL video page.

I used a combination of dark and light colors for the bpsc because it gives a shadowy feel to my blanket. I have a spring/summer theme going, but even under the most amazing flowers there are shadows….

For my ATB I am using a 3.5mm hook and Scheepjes Linen Soft yarn in the following colors

  • round 24 – 601 chocolate
  • round 25 – 613 ecru
  • round 26 – 601 chocolate

If you don’t like the beige, you can easily substitute it for white or cream. I still have quite a lot of this yarn left after the Flight of Fancy CAL and as it fits with the chocolate color like a dream I use it.

Next week will be a bit more relaxed. Be sure to share your blanket(s) in the Facebook group CAL – Crochet A Long and/or Ravelry group Around the Bases.

  1. Hi I am loving the look of your piece and would love to do my ATB in the same design and colours.

    I haven’t started yet as I am waiting to receive my order from Deramores. I have ordered all Linensoft up to week six.

    As it takes up to 3-4 weeks for my orders to be delivered to Australia, I was wondering if you could post the rest of the colours used by you so that I can order ahead and not get too far behind in the CAL.

    Thank you.

    Kind Regards

    Deb
