Welcome to the On Track Crochet Along!

Hi, I’m Maud and welcome to my second Crochet Along!
A Crochet Along, also known as a CAL, is a crochet event where the pattern is released in weekly parts and people all over the world are crocheting the pattern at the same time. The crochet along is finished, the pattern is now a complete pattern. This CAL was hosted in my Facebook group Maud’s Crochet Club, where you can still get support from me and other people who are crocheting the same pattern. Search for it on Facebook, request to join and I will let you in!
The pattern consists of seven stripes of different patterns on a diagonal. That means you get to crochet three and sometimes even four different patterns per row. That’s such fun! And if that sounds complicated to you: when I started crocheting this blanket I found (and my testers also found): after I had crocheted the first about 8 rows, it became very logical what the next row had to be.
