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.

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.
