Part 3



Well it’s finally Friday, and I can honestly say that this has been a long, difficult week for me. Luckily, I’ve been able to find some quiet crochet time in the evenings, which has helped a lot! Needless to say, I am so glad the weekend is almost here!

So let’s start our weekend off with a new part of the Marine Life CAL! Today we’re starting Part 3 of this blanket, which features a cute little crab, and I’m getting a bunch of Little Mermaid/Sebastian the crab vibes, aren’t you?

If you’re a bit behind, don’t worry–there’s still lots of time to catch up! You can find Part 1 (the starfish) here and Part 2 (the blue whales) here.

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 Duck Egg, Lipstick, 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!

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 28th.

For Part 4, you will need Stylecraft Special DK in colors Storm Blue (background color), Cypress and Bottle.
