Forget-Me-Not – Square 10 of Bláithín Blanket Stash Busting CAL

February 3, 2020

Welcome to the 10th Flower Square pattern of the Bláithín Blanket Stash Busting CAL! This crochet square is called the Forget-me-Not Square. This flower square is delicate with an 8 petal lace flower, and it will make a lovely addition to your blanket! This is the final square of this blanket CAL and it has been so much fun! You will need to make 4 Forget-me-not Squares and 4 solid squares for this part of the CAL.  You can find the pattern for the solid square at this link Bramble Square and Solid Square

Final Week – Joining and Border

Notes

  • As such, gauge is not critical in this project. What is important is that all your squares are the same size.
  • My blanket is made using DK weight yarn and 4.5 mm hook and each square is 6.5in. If your tension is very loose you could use a 4mm hook
  • It’s generally best to stick to the same yarn brand if possible, to avoid drastic changes in the yarn’s thickness (which can affect the size of your squares)
  • You could use worsted weight (aran weight) if that is what you have. Your finished squares will be approx 8in
  • The squares are designed to be all the same size after blocking. Your stitch count for final round of every square ,will be 24 dc (tr) each side of square
  • Blocking will even out any minor differences in size. I pin them to my ironing board to the same size template each time, and steam them. After they cool down they will be a beautiful polished square!
  • Use the same hook size throughout the CAL and block your squares to keep the size consistent.
  • Check your stitch count at the end of each round to make sure you are on track.
  • I suggest you use the Invisible Joining method to finish rounds of the Solid Square, and all rounds of the Hydrangea Square, for a neat consistent finish. I have provided Instructions on how to do an Invisible join in this post
