Elements CAL Part 12 Video Tutorial

And it’s all done! With Part 12 Elements CAL comes to and end. I am slightly late with the video tutorial for part 12, I know, my apologies. I have been extremely busy this last month managing work, home, my social obligations, and my crochet obligations.


Video tutorial Part 12

In the final video of the series I show you how to do the border. If you want to extend your border, you can best do so after round 4. I also talk about this in the video.

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/Int), Black Sheep Wools (UK/Int)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 the following colors for my border. After Round 4 of the border I have added extra rounds to extend the border before finishing with the last 3 rounds of the pattern.

  • Round 1 – Moonstone 801
  • Round 2 – Moonstone 801
  • Round 3 – Moonstone 801
  • Round 4 – Lilac Quartz 818
  • Extra 1 – Lilac Quartz 818
  • Extra 2 – Deep Amethyst 811
  • Extra 3 – Deep Amethyst 811
  • Extra 4 – Lepidolite 830
  • Extra 5 – Lepidolite 830
  • Round 5 – Boulder Opal 804
  • Round 6 – Moon Stone 801
  • Round 7 – Boulder Opal 804

Finial Yarn amounts

I have finished my blanket which means I can now give you my final yarn amounts. These amounts are higher than the official kits because I have extended my border. I have used:

    1. I would love to get started, and am an experienced crocheter, but am quite a novice when it comes to the computer. I don’t know how to find a CAL tutorial once I sign up for lessons. I usually use a printed pattern, b/c I can follow that, although the video is so helpful. I would like the 12 part series, but in a printed form if possible. If the videos are on YouTube, I can find them. Please help…..this is such a beautiful project! We don’t usually use email although we have an address.


  1. Do you have written instructions? Where I live the phone service is pretty sketchy.
    Thank you
