The Yarn

When designing my square I used “I Love This Yarn” from Hobby Lobby. At the time I wasn’t able to purchase the yarn that Helen and Sarah were using for the CAL, so this was the closest that I was able to get my hands on.

If participating in the CAL, you should not have an issue using the same materials that you’re already using.

Gauge: 12 Stitches x 10 Rows

Size: Approx. 9×9 Square

Pattern Notes

A stitch count is provided at the end of each row.

Blocking isn’t necessary but advised.

The border is done with the RS facing.
