Nuts about Squares CAL – Week 10

Week 10 of Nuts about Squares CAL is all about rest and relaxation because this week you only need to make 2 squares. It gives those of you that are a bit behind time to catch up. This week we have 2 designs, so you are making one of each. The squares follow the rest and relaxation idea perfectly because in my opinion these are some of the easier squares of the CAL. We are making one Moroccan Window square designed by Heather Gibbs and one Sweet and Fair square designed by Julie Yeager.

If you appreciate a visual support to the pattern, you can follow the video for Moroccan Window and Sweet and Fair. These videos shows you how to make the original square.

After you have completed the original pattern you need to add an extra round using Color A to bring your total stitch count to 44 stitches. I also show you how to do this in a short video.


Share your squares

At this point you have a VERY impressive number of squares. Just 6 more to go and then all the squares are completed. If you would like to share your work you can do so in the Official CCC Social Group on Facebook, share it on my Facebook page or tag me in your post on Instagram. If you use the hastag #NutsAboutSquares it will help me find it.

I hope to see all of you next week for part 11 of Nuts about Squares CAL when we will be making 3 squares again.

With love,

Esther
