This year, we’ve been through a lot and what would be better than a FREE CAL at the end of the year? We really need something nice, colorful and unique to end this year, right?

The story behind the name:

My daughter’s middle name is Anna and she always sits next to me watching cartoons and checking my work while I’m crocheting. That’s why I decided to name the pattern after her, because all of my ideas for the design came from the love I feel for her, she inspires me all the time.

The pattern is a beautifully textured, heirloom baby blanket, which is using a lot of different stitches.

CAL Parts:

Week 1: 27 December 2020, Part 1: Round 1-21
Week 2: 3 January 2021, Part 2: Round 22-32
Week 3: 10 January 2021, Part 3: Round 33-48
Week 4: 17 January 2021, Part 4: Round 49-57

Materials needed:

• 3.5 mm (E) size hook
NOTE: If you crochet loosely I advise you to use a 3 mm (5/0) size hook
• 1 Scheepjes Whirl and a matching whirlette or approximately 1640 yards/1500 meters of fingering weight yarn (Hobbii Twisters, Twirls or YarnArt Flowers are a great alternative)
• Yarn needle for weaving in ends
• Scissors
• Stitch markers (optional)

Note 1: If you crochet loosely, you might need to get another Whirlette or instead of using 2 Whirlettes, you can use 2 Whirls

Note 2: Blocking is essential to enhance the textured, lacy patternwork of your blanket

Difficulty:

Intermediate. Although, this is an intermediate/advanced pattern, advanced beginners can join in too as the pattern will have CLEAR and EASY TO UNDERSTAND instructions with some photo help.

Size:

The finished size is 87.5cm x 87.5 cm / 34.5″ x 34.5″ AFTER BLOCKING.

However, if you use different yarn weight (dk or aran), the finished size will be bigger.

Gauge:

5 half double crochet stitches and 3 rows = 1″ / 2.5cm

The finished size will also differ if you have a loose or tight tension.

Helpful tips:

Don’t get stressed about the time frame. It’s all about the joy of crocheting, so if it takes more time to complete each part it’s still okay! This is not a race. It’s a journey, our journey together to create something unique and beautiful with or creativity.

This is a written pattern only with no charts.
However, it will have some helpful photos for the tricky rounds.
