Having just completed my 8th block in the Moogly Afghan CAL I thought it would be a nice idea to show you where I am with it so far – courtesy of a PicMonkey collage.
Each block will be approximately 13″ square as this is how they are coming up (I obviously crochet looser than some others as I think they are supposed to be 12″ – but as long as they are all the same size I guess it doesn’t matter!)
I am using acrylic yarn in four shades of grey and a 5.00mm hook but I think I might introduce a burgundy colour for joining them together and the border.
If you don’t know what the Moogly Afghan CAL is – and let’s face it, why should you – Moogly is a blog I follow by a very talented lady called Tamara. She does lots of YouTube video tutorials on stitches and patterns and pretty much taught me to crochet. She has organised a CAL (crochet-along) which will last the whole year, with two blocks a month for people to follow if they wish.
It’s a great way of doing a large project as it’s broken down and doesn’t feel too daunting – plus there are loads of other people doing it at the same time – there are pages on Ravelry showing everyones works of art and there is something good about knowing others are doing the same project at the same time!
