seaside stash busting blanket weeks 9 – 12

I thought you might like another little update on the slow CAL (crochet a long) I’m participating in which is being hosted by the lovely Eleanora over at coastal crochet. You can also find lots of other amazing blankets and makers participating in this CAL  across social media by searching #seasidestashbustingblanket.

You can read about  my weeks 1 – 4 just here

and my weeks 5 – 8 just here

But let me show you weeks 9 – 12.  I have enjoyed these weeks so much, hooking out and about in town


The blanket is certainly growing larger and no longer resembles a scarf…in fact it is way past scarf stage now and is handy for keeping my lap warm whilst I hook away.


I think this will be the last close up picture where the whole of the blanket will fit into frame.

I’m still ploughing through my stash too, so this makes me doubly thrilled with this blanket.  I find I am really looking forward to every Monday and Friday when the next rows are released.  I love the surprise of not knowing what the next set of rows will be.

  1. One of these light years I’ gonna take part in a CAL. Would’ve liked this one; because the others I’ve seen are all complex, and I’d be not so much excited as filled with dread re the next instalment. :/
    Your work is lovely, Nicola !

  2. I am so loving this blanket. It is stunning. I have seen so many colour combinations, from various crocheters. Just the ideal pattern for each one in the mood to make a blanket. And not rushing it either makes it a great project.
    Have fun making it and enjoy. 🙂

  3. The patterns in this are fantastic! And your colour choices are really lovely. I bet you can’t wait for each week to come round. I wonder how much longer before it becomes impractical to take out and crochet? I guess that’s when you start something new at the same time 🙂

  4. That is starting to look really fabulous! I love the colors! Me too- as someone else said- one of these days I am going to take part in one of these…maybe after we move and get settled.

      1. I was thinking about that…I m thinking that after we move to a smaller home I will have more time for things like that. I’m looking forward to it.
