While I’m still on the mend from this cold/flu bug that’s been going around, I’m pleased to report that I am finally starting to feel better! In fact, I’m going to directly relate my feeling better to being able to curl up with my Marine Life blanket. It’s super warm and cozy, and sometimes you just have to curl up with a comfy blanket to feel better, right?
This week, we’re starting Part 7 of the ML CAL, which features a very cute pair of seahorses. This square is personally my favorite out of the entire blanket! I particularly love how the colors of the seahorses compliment each other–they’re the inverse of each other. Aren’t they just precious?
Heads up: the delicate color details on these seahorses means that you’ll have lots of color changes. Trust me, it’s so worth the extra effort!
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, Blush, Soft Peach, and a little bit of Black for the eyes. 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 8 will be posted next Friday, October 26th.
For Part 8, you will need Stylecraft Special DK in colors Storm Blue (background color), Duck Egg, and a tiny bit of Black.
