Around the Bases CAL week 7

TIme goes so fast! Sometimes it just amazes me. We are already on week 7 of Around the Bases CAL. This week we are making cable stitches and although I am not a fan of this stitch it looks good on our ATB. In this week’s video I show you how to make the cable stitch.


Video Part 7


This week I chose to use my purple yarn again because I really love the lilac colors yarn. It just so reminds me of spring flowers and I will be using this color in more parts. I love purple, it’s my favorite color.

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

  • round 27 – 613 ecru
  • round 28 – 613 ecru
  • round 29 – 625 lila
  • round 30 – 625 lila
  • round 31 – 602 purple
  • round 32 – 602 purple

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 and purple.

Next week will be a very relaxed week perfect for catching up or working on other WIPs. Be sure to share your blanket(s) in the Facebook group CAL – Crochet A Long and/or Ravelry group Around the Bases.
