What is a crochet along?
If you’ve never done a crochet along before and are wondering what it is, it is an event where each week part of a pattern is released and then you work through it over the course of the event. For this crochet along, we’ll be working through this blanket pattern and then having a fun community for the event in my Facebook group!
How does it work?
Starting on May 10, there will be 2 squares released each week of the crochet along. For the first week they’ll release on Tuesday and Thursday, and then the rest of the weeks it will be Monday to Thursday. Each square will be released for free on the blog of the designer who created it, and this post will be updated for each new square! There will also be assembly and border instructions added at the end of the CAL on this post.

Joining and Assembly Instructions
To assemble the blanket the way the sample is pictured, you will use the layout displayed in the photo below.
Once you have the layout the way you want, then it’s time to join.
Once you have the layout you’d like for your squares, it’s time to join them. For the sample blanket, we used a zig zag join. To do that, you can find a great tutorial at: Zig Zag Slip Stitch Join Tutorial.
Once all of the squares have been joined together, then you can add a border. The border the sample blanket has on it is an alpine stitch border all around the edges of the blanket. You can check out a great alpine stitch tutorial at: Alpine Stitch Tutorial.
