Harvest Blanket CAL

Hello my fellow Yarnies!

Welcome to the Harvest Blanket CAL! This CAL is hosted by wonderful and super talented Claire of E'Claire Makery. (Click on the photos to enlarge)

Claire invited talented designers to contribute with a design for a Harvest theme and that is how this blanket came to be! Each designer has produced a C2C square or 25x25 blocks that together made a beautiful blanket design with 12 squares. This design is brought to you as a FREE CAL in which every Mon-Wed-Fri a new design will be published and you will be able to get it from designer's page for FREE. All you will have to do is check the round up post (button below) and let it guide you to the free C2C square. Once a square is published it will stay available to you for the duration of the CAL. In this CAL I have 2 squares I designed and will be sharing with you in form of FREE C2C graphs. In order not to miss it follow me on IG or FB as I will share every new square! Just click on the icon to IG or FB on the right side of the screen if you are on your PC or go to the bottom of the page if you are on your mobile!

In case you don't want to wait for the squares to be published or you want to have it already in one place you have an option to buy an e-book  via the button below. The e-book contains 12 featured squares – chart, written and color block instructions for each square.

Today is my Sunflowers square day!

If used as a standalone it can be made into a pillow, tote bag, table runner or anything you want.

If used in addition to another 11 squares a beautiful single person blanket can be made as in the Harvest Blanket CAL 2022, for which it was originally designed.
Any yarn #4 weight in 6 colors (yellow, orange, brown, green, dark green and white). Look below in the introduction for guidance on what yardage is needed. I used Drops Paris, 100% cotton, Aran (8wpi) for 5mm hook (US 8), 50g=75m (82 yards)
Gauge- 6.5 blocks x 6.5 blocks=4x4” (10x10 cm) if hdc stitches were used. End size of the square is 41x41 cm (16x16 inches).

Yarn needed:
White color=308 blocks= 84g= 136yards =a bit under two skeins
Orange color= 134 blocks= 36g= 59 yards= slightly more than 1/2 of a skein
Yellow color= 85 blocks= 23g= 38 yards= 1/2 of a skein
Dark green color= 50 blocks= 14g= 22 yards= 1/3 of a skein
Brown color=32 blocks= 9g=14 yards= 1/5 of a skein
Green color= 16 blocks= 5g= 7 yards= 1/10 of a skein

Hook- 5mm (H)
Needle for weaving in the ends

The stitch includes half double crochet (in US terms), chains, and slip stitches. As it is in multiple colors, color changes will also need to happen. Each C2C block is made out of ch2 and 3 hdc stitches. If you are doing this square as a part of the Community Garden CAL then use hdc but you can also use dc. The size by hdc will be about 16’’ square if the gauge I had with the yarn I used is achieved with same or any other yarn. With dc stich it will be even bigger (by my guess about 21-22 inches).
