Part 2


Happy Friday, friends! I hope you had fun last week working on Part 1 of this CAL. I’ve seen so many pictures of your starfish squares and they’re looking great!

Today we’re starting Part 2 of the Marine Life Blanket CAL. This week’s square features a mother and baby blue whale. This was one of the first squares that I designed for this project, and I absolutely adore how it turned out. I don’t think there’s anything more adorable than that little baby whale, do you?

New to graphghans? That’s okay! Click here to learn more about Graphghan Boot Camp: a self-paced, online course that will teach you everything you need to know to make this project (and even design your own).


To make this square, you’ll need Stylecraft Special DK yarn in Storm Blue, Royal, Duck Egg, Grey and Black. For a full list of colors for the entire CAL, click here.

Don’t forget: I’ve used C2C, Stylecraft Special DK yarn, and a G/4.00mm hook. You can use whichever hook, stitch, or yarn you please, but note that your finished project size may differ from mine.

For this CAL, I’ve made graphs with arrows designed for use with the C2C or mini C2C stitch. There are two versions of the graph: a left-handed version (start in the lower left-hand corner) and a right-handed version (start in the lower right-hand corner). Note that there are no written instructions for this CAL, just graphs!

The use of the Royal Blue yarn really makes these whales pop, don’t you think? I love how they stand out against the Storm Blue background. I just can’t get over how cute that little whale calf is!

I’d love to see photos of your progress as you work on this project! Feel free to share on social media using the hashtag #marinelifecal.


Part 3 will be posted next Friday, September 21st.

For part 3, you will need Stylecraft Special DK in colors Duck Egg (background color), Lipstick and Black.
