#14 Island Stroll CAL

Introduction

After the great success of the Butterfly effect CAL that we did with Sisters in Stitch in 2019 we thought it was time for a ‘part deux’. Tess (@sistersinstitch) has let her creative mind and gifted hands work with our yarns and we are proud to present to you the Island Stroll CAL!

"Come away with me and take a stroll by the sea and listen to the song of the ocean on the docks. Let’s saunter in the sunlight and feel the summer slowly arrive, and take a walk in the deep woods of the island. Let’s exhale and take some time to simply be, to relax and create. Let’s travel in the mind to the Swedish archipelago and all the beauty it has to show.

xxx Tess"




The Island Stroll CAL brings you floral squares that will slowly turn into beautiful octagons and then finally be joined together. The designs are inspired by fauna and nature of the island Tess lives on so the colorways are named after the three elements of her beloved morning strolls: Saunter in the sunlight, Stroll by the sea and Walk in the woods.

This Crochet A Long (CAL) consists of one main pattern yet brings you two options of makes depending on which yarn you choose to work with. Either you go for the luxuriously luscious blanket in our Super Must-Have, or for the stunningly textured pillow in the Must-Have yarn. All of the kits are available here: Island Stroll Blanket, Island Stroll Pillow.

Materials:
For the blanket:
- 25 balls of Yarn and Colors Super Must-Have in colorway
Saunter in the Sunlight Stroll by the Sea or Walk in the Woods

We rated the skill level ’intermediate’ but one of our testers had very little experience making granny square and managed to make the pattern anyway. Tess guides you with very clear pattern descriptions and video’s all along.

From May 6th, a free blog post will be online every Friday (around 12:00 CET) for 11 weeks. In those blog posts you will find the pattern (in US terms) and links to the video material Tess made. To get you in the mood you’ll find all the stitches used in the pattern here. Let’s get those hooks ready and practice a little bit!
