Crochet Bucket List – number 4

This is what 70 plus crochet squares look like.


It could make a beautiful blanket.  But with all the different sizes in there, I think it will be a nightmare trying to join the lot!

This all started way back in April this year.  Facebook Crochet Groups started showing us this CAL from Elle Yarns.

You will find the free patterns for all these squares on Elle Yarns’ webpage.  You just need to register (for free), then you can download them.

I had some blue yarn in my stash and joined in and crocheted the first square.  We went for cake and coffee in Paternoster where I then took photos of the squares. After that Elle released two squares a week.  And I then felt obliged to photograph all the other squares somewhere along our West Coast with views of the ocean.

After the first square I was hooked!  And of course every time I visited my LYS, 50 Something Yarn Shop, different shades of blue yarn screamed at me to come home with me.


This was square number 2 of the Elle CAL. Paradise Beach, Langebaan



Having fun at Paradise Beach. Three more weeks then this is where we are going to live! Yay!

Square 8


I just love the insides of some of the squares. The possibilities of what you can do with them are endless!

And that is the Elle CAL in a bucket for now. Anya wanted to be in the photo too! She wants to be in all the photos. LOL!

I can really recommend beginners to take part in a CAL (Crochet-Along).  You learn so many stitches and tricks.

These went into a bucket for now.  I am still deciding on what to do with them.

The rest of the squares in my “blanket photo” were from other CAL’s and some of them were my own squares.  Hopefully I can show them to you tomorrow.
