Wow… and just like that, I am releasing the last part of the Wanderlust CAL! Week 15 of the Wanderlust CAL is the Wanderlust chart! This has been the longest CAL I have ever participated in, but my favorite. The Wanderlust CAL not only represents where I am from (the beautiful PNW), but all of the aspects of the great outdoors and camping. And let’s not forget, the greatest excuse for getting to crochet a LOT.
If you are just now discovering the Wanderlust CAL and would like to create this blanket of awesomeness, hop over to the original post for the details and check out the Wanderlust CAL week 1 – The Happy S’more here. Though the CAL will be over, I promise you won’t regret getting in on the fun and you can still join the Facebook group!
Keep in mind, the Wanderlust CAL can be personalized. You can decide to do each release and have a large blanket to snuggle under or you can just do some of the releases and make a lap blanket, baby blanket, or pillows! You can also personalize each release with whatever colors suit your style… really, the possibilities are endless with this CAL. I will be providing the colors I chose to use on my squares, but again, feel free to get creative and share!
- Red Heart Yarn– Medium Weight (4)
- I would suggest going through your stash of yarn that you have already used for the Wanderlust CAL. Use up what you can, so you don’t have a lot of left over from the project and you don’t have to buy more.
- Hook Size: G or H (I opted for H)
- Yarn Clips
- Yarning Needle
- Wanderlust Chart
- Bobble (I am using the Bobble stitch for the Wanderlust CAL)
- Mini C2C
I have a private Facebook group (Wanderlust CAL) for everyone that would like to participate in the Wanderlust CAL. So far it has been a blast seeing everyone’s progress and creativity. Plus, its a great place to ask questions about the Wanderlust CAL. Even though the CAL is over, you can still use the Facebook group to ask questions or check others creative take on each square.
