Hev and I have come up with a crochet/knit along for 2018! Here is the information:
Hev will be our knitter and Jessica will be our crocheter. Each month 2 patterns will be released – 1 by Hev & 1 by Jessica. We will start off with easy/basic squares as an introduction to to knitting and crocheting. Each month the squares will get harder in skill. We want those not comfortable with knitting and/or crocheting to build up skill as time goes on. We will post links to YouTube or other places if we feel they are needed. If you need help post a comment on that months post. Your email is required to be able to post a comment but that is only to prove you are an actual person — it’s a spam prevention measure. We will NEVER use your email for anything unless we reply to you personally to your comment.
Square size: 9 inch
Yarn: Worsted weight
Amount of yarn needed We haven’t figured this out yet. We figure at least one 7oz skein of yarn per color you use. The less colors you use the more yarn you need of the colors you use.
# of colors needed: at least 1 – no more then 5.
Needle/Hooks: Will be decided by each pattern.
Gauge: Will be decided by each pattern.
Pattern file type: PDF downloadable from Ravelry. Possibly on Hev & Jessicas sites.
Size of the finished blanket: It hasn’t been decided yet although we know it will be 36 inches wide and 40 inches long (4 squares wide x 5 squares long).
