Wanderlust CAL Week 13 – … Are Lost

“Not all who wander are lost.” (J.R.R. Tolkien) completes the quote for the Wanderlust CAL and this week’s release.  I cannot believe we are on Week 13 of the Wanderlust CAL… literally just a couple more releases and this beauty will be complete.  The perfect way to end your summer camping… wrapped up in this cozy handmade blanket.

Just Getting Started

If you are just 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!

Supplies Needed:

Stitch Options

  • Bobble (I am using the Bobble stitch for the Wanderlust CAL)
  • C2C
  • Mini C2C

Facebook

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.  I will also share my progress each week on my squares… theres nothing better than sharing a completed piece of a larger project.

Wanderlust CAL Schedule

Since we are on the home stretch, I will continue to release on Fridays.  Plus, who doesn’t love a reason to crochet over the weekend?!
