Around the Bases CAL week 9

It is week 9 of the Around the Bases CAL and this week it also just happens to be Animal Day in The Netherlands. An extra treat for my cat Jack is a must today. But on the other hand, he has some serious weight issues, so maybe not 😀

Something a less serious than Jack’s weight issues but important none the less, is this weeks part of ATB. Last week it was easy sailing with a relaxing mesh, this week is a lot more work; we are making Asian Fans. Another one of my favorite stitches, just below the star stitch because that is may all time favorite stitch, but I like one too.


Video Part 9

To help you to become a fan of the Asian fan stitch I have, as always, a video tutorial for you.


I have used soft spring colors for this weeks motif. The fans are delicate stitches so I chose to use delicate colors in pink shades. I did not have to work round 37 because I am on the other team this week, but if I did have to work it I would have used pastel pink. Here my colors for this week are

  • Round 37 – 628 pastel pink (optional)
  • Round 38 – 628 pastel pink
  • Round 39 – 626 pink
  • Round 40 – 626 pink
  • Round 41 – 604 red
  • Round 42 – 604 red

and then the result is….

Next week in part 10 we are making a classic stitch, a version of the granny stitch. See you then. Oh, and please share your blanket(s) in the Facebook group CAL – Crochet A Long and/or Ravelry group Around the Bases.
