Notes

This started out as a BAMMM SHAZAAM 2016 CAL afghan, but then morphed into more of an “I want to make lots of blocks from my queue” sampler. I am, however, using some of the CAL blocks, as well as the Canada Goose block border.

My first block came out a little on the small side-- about 10” instead of 12”, before the block border, and since I’ve been making the rest to match it in size, I often have to leave off a couple of rounds and/or alter the stitch height. With the block border, they’re just a smidgen over 12” (maybe 12 and one-eighth inch).


I’m using a variety of acrylic worsted-weight yarns from my stash.

For the blocks:

Loops and Threads Impeccable:
Soft Fern
Grass
Soft Rose

I Love This Yarn:
Pale Denim
Summer Sky
(Mid Green? Light Sage? no label…)

Caron One Pound:
Lilac
Azure

Red Heart Super Saver:
Warm Brown

For the block borders:
Impeccable L&T “Soft Fern” and Caron One Pound “Lace”

The whole-blanket border is a combination of two edgings from Edie Eckman’s Around the Corner book. First, five rounds of linen stitch (Border #149), then the alternating small and large scallops of Border #104.
