Grantastic 2019 Crochet A Long

Grantastic 2019 Crochet A Long Page
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

On This Page you will find all The 
information you need to be a part
 of the 2019 Crochet A long.

I will release the Crochet Pattern and Video 
for each Square on the 3rd Monday,  1 per month.

Each month I will release a 6 inch Granny Square.
You will make 4 of each square each month,
 for a total of  48 Squares.
We will then make them into a Blanket.
6 squares X 8 squares = 36 X 48 inch blanket,
plus a trim.

You can make as many additional Squares as you
 would like, to make the Blanket Bigger.
And you can arrange your squares any way you like.

For the video demonstrations I will be making all
 my squares in the same  color.
We will be starting with beginner squares and
 move on to more difficult squares through the year.
 Each Square will have different Skill Level.

What You will Need:

Crochet Hook - H / 5.00MM

Yarn - Worsted Weight (4) yarn
             28 Oz, 1488 Yards
I will be using Red heart Supersaver (aqua)
Needle for weaving in ends

If Additional materials are needed,
 it will be listed with each Square.

Stitches and terms will also be listed with each square.

I just started my "along" square today. I seem to find the Square 1 instructions missing the Ch2 between corners in the written pattern, beginning with Rnd 2. Would you take a look?
Also, since I have not seen your method of forming a starting circle, I would like some detail on that, especially making the holding knot you refer to.
Thank you.

Posh Pooch Designs said...

Thanks, we took a look, and there is a ch2, not sure what your referring to.
Also Did you watch the video For the ch 5 circle. That will help you.

Elaine said...

Oops! Must learn to read better. I watched a video from the Back to Basics series that helped clarify the knot to hold the tail in place when used to create the chain circle.
When I first started the Garantastic CAL, I saw the curler hat at the top and immediately decided I HAD to make it. Still looking for curlers (none in my house for decades!).
I am RLKnitter on Ravelry, where you will see a very few crochet projects in the pages of knits.

I am going to try and make this squars

Is the link broken for the written pattern 5, it just goes to the same page with the links?

I am also having difficulty trying to get to the pattern link for square 5. The link takes you back to the “links” page. Thanks in advance for any help or explanation.

Marni said...

I finally found it, by searching: try this

I also had a hard time finding the printed instruction. Thank you for sharing the link. I wish the printed instruction could be printed out easily.
The CAL has been fun. Thank you!

I’m really enjoying this Grantastic CAL. Fun and easy. I’m working with Vanna’s Choice from Lion Brand yarns in Silver Blue. I really like this yarn, but I think it’s a color they discontinued? Not sure. I should have plenty to finish this project though. Thank you 😊

The Link for Square 5 is now fixed.... Not sure what happened, but it works now.

Where do I find the posts of pictures of participating cal squares?

I ended up making one more round for the September square in order for it to measure the correct size in case this helps someone.

I tried to do the last square but my star seems to be off. I am going to tried it again .

Do you remember Marvin the Martin from bugs bunny cartoons. Do you have a video for that.
