Time for part 8 of Elements CAL designed by Sandra from Hooks and Yarn. In part 8 we continue with the squaring up our blanket and making it larger. Only 4 rounds this week, so that gives everyone time to catch up if needed.
Taking photo’s was a challenge this week; my young kitten wanted to have the blanket all to himself. This is Troy, he is about 5 months old and is a rescue I adopted a few months ago. He was in my foster care from since he was 5 weeks old and he hasn’t left. He is just the sweetest thing so we decided to keep him.

Video tutorial Part 8
In part 8 we grow the textured corner with granny special stitches. I have chosen not to show you all the granny special stitches anymore because I am sure that by this time you can do them in your sleep. I do show you how to do all the other bits in between.
