Hello and welcome to Couch Surfer Crochet!
I’m ready to introduce my newest Crochet Along: The Stash Buster Granny CAL!
I’ve been working like crazy to get this project finished so I can share with all of you! I ran a poll in the Couch Surfer Crocheters FB Group to see if people preferred a shorter (and smaller) project that lasts 4 weeks, or a full size blanket that will last 6 weeks. The majority picked the 6 week full blanket option. I’ve now got the plan in place and am ready to introduce this new Crochet Along to the world!
This CAL will start on October 8th and run through November 12th. I wanted to be able to do the entire project start to finish before the holiday season really sets in on us and we run out of time for side projects! Weeks 1 – 4 we will be creating a certain number of squares. Week 5 will teach you how to join them all together. And Week 6 will teach you how to add a border to give it a nice finish!
October 8: Week 1 – 9 squares
October 15: Week 2 – 12 squares
October 22: Week 3 – 12 squares
October 29: Week 4 – 16 squares
November 5: Week 5 – JOINING
November 12: Week 6 – BORDER
What you will need:Yarn:
Size 4 (medium weight) yarn. I used mostly Red Heart
yarns since most of my stash comes from Michaels stores
***since I used yarn from my stash I don’t have an exact amount needed, but I know you will need at least 400 yards of one solid color to do the joining and border!
Hook: Size I/9 5.5mm
