Moogly 2018 CAL

IMG_1835Last year I did the Moogly 2017 CAL and loved it.  For every square I posted my tips to make it in a solid color instead of multicolored.  I loved working on the squares and finding the new designers.  So I am doing it again this year.

I am going to do each square in a solid gray color and then bind them together in smaller blankets.  There will be a 6×3, 2×2, and 2 single squares that I add borders too.  Why am I making 4 blankets instead of one big one?  I am going to be donating the finished blankets to the Ronald McDonald House again this year. The reason I am making three different sizes is because they take kids all the way up to 21.  A lot of things are donated for the infants and small children, but people don’t realize the older kids need a little something too.

Basic Info

It is hosted on MooglyBlog.com  by Tamara.  She talks to all the great designers she knows and they come up with a schedule.  All the squares are a 12 inch finished square using worsted weight yarn.  The pattern is free when you follow the link through the Moogly site.  You can either use the colors that she picks at the beginning of the year or set out your own color palate.  You can use as many or as few colors as you want.  The kicker is if you don’t like a square or it is to complicated then you can go back and get a square from a previous year – because they are all still free.

 

My Progress

Below is the link for my posts on my progress, followed by a link to Moogly’s site for the pattern.  If you click on the link for Square 1 it will show you my guidelines for the CAL.  I respect the work that Tamara and all the designers have put into the project and won’t post thier tips or the pattern on my site.

**Not going to lie.  I have fallen behind because I keep working on other things.  I am going to get caught up soon!
