Elements CAL Part 2 Video Tutorial

How did it go with part 1 of Elements CAL last week? Ready for part 2 of  this exciting CAL designed by Sandra from Hooks and Yarn? This week we are growing our square into a larger square, but rotated. Part 2 is really interesting and the textured stitches give a lovely effect.


Video tutorial Part 2

In the video tutorial for part 2 of Elements I take you step-by-step through the process of rotating the square and I again pay attention to the special stitches we learned last week.

Yarn & kits

There are official Elements CAL yarn kits available from Hooks and Yarn.  I have made my own colorway using Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn in the following 5 colors.

Scheepjes Stone Washed is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/International), Love Crochet (US), Knotty House (CA), Caro’s Atelier (NL/EU) or your local Scheepjes Stockist. In addition to the yarn you will also need a 4mm hook. Thank you for supporting my work by buying your yarn through the links on my blog. ❤


I have used my 5 colors in the following way for Part 2. Sometimes I follow the order of the pattern, but not always. I used the Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn in combination with a 4mm hook.

  • Round 13 – Boulder Opal 804
  • Round 14 – Boulder Opal 804
  • Round 15 – Moonstone 801
  • Round 16 – Moonstone 801
  • Round 17 – Lilac Quartz 818
  • Round 18 – Lilac Quartz 818
  • Round 19 – Deep Amethyst 811
  • Round 20 – Deep Amethyst 811
  • Round 21 – Lepidolite 830
  • Round 22 – Lepidolite 830
  • Round 23 – Boulder Opal 804

At the end of round 23 my square is about 30cm (12in). You will notice that your work curls a lot, and therefore it’s vital that you block your work at the end of Part 2. Stretch and pull your work into a square. Taking time to properly block your work now will make your final blanket all the more beautiful. In THIS VIDEO I show you how to spray block your work.

You are welcome to join my brand new Facebook group “It’s all in a Nutshell Crochet Nuts” that I have created to give everyone that uses my videos or patterns the opportunity to share their work. Feel free to join!

Hope to see you next week for part 3 of Elements.

With love,

  1. Received video instructions for Elements Part 2. Wondering if there will be written instructions. Please advise. This is a beautiful pattern.


  2. I would love to do this afghan but want to choose my own colors. Have you decided how many balls of yarn it will take? I can’t get into the Hooks and Yarn site. I love Love Scheepjes yarn!!!! Thanks. Love your videos also.


    1. I have not finished the blanket yet, I am only on part 5, so I don’t know my yarn amounts. The designer has given the following yarn amounts if you follow the colorplacement in the written pattern:

      11. x Moon Stone 801 (colour A)
      3. x Beryl 833 (colour B)

  4. I absolutely LOVE this colorway, and plan on making it for my mother-in-law. Can you please tell me how many balls/how much of each color you used in JUST rounds 1 and 2? Thank you!

  6. Hello! On the website for the yarn you’ve used, they suggest to use a 3mm hook instead of your suggestion of a 4mm hook. May I ask why you went for the 4mm size instead?

    Thank you 🙂


  7. I love this design. Do you have the written pattern available? I do not have a Facebook account.
