I am sure that by now you are MORE than ready to start part ONE of the Woven in Time Sofa Blanket Crochet-Along! I sure hope so, at least, because today is the day! Today we start part ONE of this sofa blanket CAL, and it couldn’t be easier.
Woven In Time CAL: Part ONE
For part ONE of this crochet-along, we are crocheting all of the strips that will be going in one direction in our blanket. In part two we will crochet the strips going perpendicular to these. Don’t forget to favorite this pattern on Ravelry!
As discussed in the materials and information post, for this part of the CAL, part ONE, you will need approximately 1413 yards (157 yards per strip) of worsted weight/Aran yarn. Use up your yarn scraps, or just one color – up to you! Grab your I/5.5mm and let’s get started!
Gauge is not super important in this project. If you want to match mine exactly, you should have 16 stitches in 5” for width, and 12 rows tall should also be 5”. If your finished strips seem a little short, that’s okay! Mine did too. It worked out great in the end!
Make nine (9) of these:
Row 1: Fhdc-143 (or ch-144, hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in each to end) (143)
Rows 2 – 12: Ch-1, turn, hdc in each st to end (143)
Fasten off and weave in all ends on all strips. That. Is. It!
Can you believe it?
These strips are super simple and your mission, should you choose to accept it 😉 – is to complete NINE of these before part TWO is released. Feel free to share a photo of your completed part ONE in the Heart Hook Home Crochet Community on Facebook.
