Part 5


Ah, Friday…my favorite day of the week!

Today I’m sharing Part 5 of the Marine Life CAL, which features one of my all-time favorite sea creatures…sharks! I’ve loved sharks since the very first time I saw them on the Discovery Channel as a kid. To this day, one of my favorite places is the aquarium in Seattle. I still love to watch the sharks swim–I could sit there for hours!

I tried to model these ones after great white sharks, but I think they turned out more sweet than scary. This week’s square is a bit simpler than last weeks (phew!), but it’s just as adorable, and I hope you like it!

Fallen a bit behind? No worries! You can find all of the parts of this blanket on the main project page here–just scroll down to the bottom of the page to see all of the parts of the blanket that are currently available!

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). There’s still plenty of time to sign up and learn!


To make this square, you’ll need Stylecraft Special DK yarn in Duck Egg, Grey, White 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 6 will be posted next Friday, October 12th.

For Part 6, you will need Stylecraft Special DK in colors Storm Blue (background color), Jaffa and Black.
