I had such fun working square number one in Elle Family Knit DK. 

CAL Square 1

The pattern is easy to follow and although the suggested colour range is lovely, I chose to change the colours to complement an existing bedroom colour scheme.  You may want to do the same. Please share with us if you do. I love to see what others are doing and sharing is the best part of a crochet-a-long. My email address is [email protected]

The standard colours I am going to use  in Elle Family Knit DK are:

001 White; 051 School Grey and 011 Light Grey

For my first square the accent colours in Elle Family Knit DK are:

101 Grape and 029 Coral.

 I used the 3.5mm crochet hook as suggested.  My tension is very average and I was delighted with the finished square size of 25 x 25cm.  The blanket is going to ‘grow’ very quickly.

The pattern for square number two will be available on our website on Friday 6 May.

Do share your work with us – it will be great to compare end results.
