As we close up this Crochet-Along, feel free to poke around the site and get inspired! Check out our little Gallery, and peruse the links in the sidebar for ideas to use those yarn remnants for some pretty makes. My favorite projects are those that have the most different colors mixed up together, as they always have the most soul. May your scrappy blankets always be bright!
My favorite Scrappy CAL progress pics are from SpringTimeVoodoo on IG! She showed us this pretty ring of rainbow color, then gave us adorable shots of her kiddoes modelling the Bear’s Rainbow Blanket. (Seriously, why do babies (and cats!) love to sprawl across your blanket when you want to take a photo?!)
It’s been a blast looking at everyone’s progress on Instagram. I have been eagerly awaiting a spare moment to post, and it finally came! Check out a few more folks who have finished their Bear’s Rainbow Blanket:
aemeabe has finished her gorgeous blanket – loving the grey and the border.
Hello everyone! Admin Mary here. It’s hot outside. That means I am not making as much progress as I would like on my own Bear’s blanket. However, I did finish up a little postage stamp blanket – which I will share with you in a minute. For now, I have to show you some amazing finished scrappy blankets from Rachel!
Admin Mary here!
I have returned from my journey to Canada and back, and it’s time to check up on everyone that is participating in the Scrappy Crochet-A-Long!
Good morning, everyone from Admin Rachele! Are we all enjoying this pattern? There are so many color choices for the squares – I know no two schemes are alike amongst our members.
The original blanket has many different colors, and while I am working mine with a pale neon palette, I only really have 5 or 6 colors – not optimal for the shaded effect. I really meditated on what type of layout I would do. Random? Orderly? Well, after a few days it hit me. I am actually thinking of doing an Around the World color layout. What do y’all think? I’ll post pics here soon.
Update – This join is now called “PLT Join” – this will help when searching for tutorials – thank you for visiting!
Admin Mary here! Hello!
I chose to do a tight join for my Bear’s Blanket. This is my first tutorial, so hopefully it makes sense… Let me know if there is anything I can improve on. I’m here to make it as clear as I can. 🙂
If any of you have nabbed Rachele’s great Gumball pattern, then this joining method is going to be easy-peasy for you. I modified what she had, and decided to not join the two DCs that I put into the corners, and instead join every DC along the side. Basically, you make a DC, then drop if off your hook, go into the top of the DC on the other square, grab the loop on the DC you made, and pull it through… continue until everything is joined. If there’s interest, I’d be happy to post a tutorial. Just let me know! It makes for a very strong, finished join… as seen here:
Also, I have been really excited seeing all the progress everyone else is making… check out a few of them!
CAL Admins, Mary and myself have made adjustments to the pattern that I decided to document.
Admin Mary made her final round with DC across, 2DC ch2 2DC in corners. Loving the pink!
I am using a different square altogether, because I have been wanting to do this particular configuration for a long time.
I’m thrilled to see some enthusiastic joiners 🙂
Lovely color inspiration here, too. Great job y’all!
