YMC Community Calming Corona Crochet & Knit Along Part Four!

It's time for Part Four of our Yarn Me Calm Community's Calming Corona Crochet and Knit Along!

Part Four is the last of our different four squares, after this we move on to joining and finally the border!  We had more of our sensational community members choosing these stitches, both for knitters and crocheters.  

 

A quick refresher on how our CKAL worked...

  • Every week I drew two of our CCCK contributors names to choose a stitch for us all to play with randomly.
  • It was one crochet stitch and one knitted stitch for the week (and possibly a Tunisian stitch too)
  • No one was expected to create the stitches but they needed to identify where and who it came from to ensure you credit the designer etc. appropriately.
  • ensure that the directions are lovely and clear for everyone to follow. Upload videos etc of the stitch if that makes it easier!
  • choose to do either a crochet or knitted stitch for the week or both!
  • we created squares with our stitches that measured 15cm x 15cm.
  • Use any yarn weight you like! 
  • We didn't include paid stitches, this is so our CCCK is accessible for everyone regardless of their circumstances.
  • The joining stitches were part of our CCCK
  • Everyone was free to invite others to the group to join in!
  • Stay kind, have fun and hopefully learn something new!

I used a yummy Bobbel Boxx from Garnmanufaktur for my CCCKAL and made just the crochet version.  It is a lovely throw rug size using all 16 squares.  You could make 2 of each square or add a plain square between the textured ones to increase the size of your finished blanket.
