Around the Bases CAL – Video tutorials and colorway

We have come to the end of Around the Bases Crochet Along designed by ChiChi Allen. During these weeks we all made a unique afghan using a different center square and different yarn. I used a square from Wink from the Scheepjes CAL 2014 as my center square.



I used Scheepjes Linen Soft yarn and a 3.5mm crochet hook to make my afgan. Linen Soft is a luxury yarn with an amazing color range, available from Wool Warehouse, or your Scheepjes stockist.

I just about used all the available colors! You can find a full list of all the colors I used in my color chart, including the extra rounds I added at the end of part 14. Especially for you, a few more photos of my ATB.

My Journey

Around the bases has been a wonderful project to work on and I enjoyed every part of it. If you want to look back at all the stages of my ATB, you can find them all here: base squarepart 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9, part 10, part 11, part 12, part 13, part 14, part 15, part 16.

I enjoyed working on my ATB, I hope you did too. I would also love to see all your finished results. Feel free to post a link on my blog, share them with me on my Facebook page or tag me in one of your post on Instagram. You can also use #itsallinanutshell to help me find it.

With love,

  2. Does anyone know when the paid pattern for ATB CAL along with the Enchanted Garden paid pattern will be released? I really would love to make the Enchanted Garden plus ATB.


  3. The videos are so very helpful. I use them rather than he written instructions. They are so easy to follow. Love them.


  4. hi, I am doing the around the bases Cal. you spoke in the videos how you added a section, and that how you did it could be found here. can you direct me to that?


  5. I have completed row 62. I am team B and video says to skip row 63. Row 63 is on my team B version of the paper pattern. I am sure l must be misunderstanding something. Should I skip row 63? Thank you Esther for all you do.
