Stitch Story CAL Video Tutorial Part 1

The time has come to start Stitch Story crochet along, a relaxing project in which a new square is released every two weeks. In part 1 we are making a relatively simple square which will be used as our gauge square to match all other squares to. Stitch Story is designed by Heather Gibbs from Keep Calm and Crochet on UK.

Video tutorial Part 1

In the video tutorial I show you how to make this first square.

My squares for Part 1

I am making my Stitch Story blanket in one color of Scheepjes River Washed yarn, the baby brother of the much loved Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn. I am using River Washed Wheaton (950), a soft shade with blue fluff and a cherry core, for my squares.

Scheepjes River Washed is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/Int), Black Sheep Wools (UK), Knotty House (CA), Caro’s Atelier (NL/EU) and many other Scheepjes stockists worldwide. Thank you for supporting my work by buying your yarn through the links on my blog ❤

I am making only two squares a week, but how many squares you make is up to you. I made one 15cm (6″) square and one 30cm (12″) square using a 3.5mm hook with my Scheepjes River Washed yarn. And just in case you are wondering, no, the guinea pig isn’t real but a quite statue in my garden.

In two weeks part 2 will be released when we make a new textured square.

With love,
