RULE OF 12 SCRAP YARN MINI CAL JULY 2017


RULE OF 12 SCRAP YARN MINI CAL 
make a cushion/wrap/blanket
What ever you have time for?
Cushion 2 blocks
Wrap maybe 5 blocks..updated number required 5 blocks not 6 as originally thought 
Blanket 9 or 12 blocks
A block measures approx: 14.5" / 37cm square

YARN:
Any Aran weight yarn in reds oranges and pinks


Each block of 9 motifs takes 65g of ARAN yarn joined
Each set of 9 circles takes 41g of Aran yarn in several shades of a set of colours
Each circle is in 3 different shades of red/orange/pink
you will need 7g each of 6-9 shades to make the first 9 circle.

HOOK: 5mm 
US Terms as always

PATTERN: PART ONE

Part 1: each round is in a different shade or red/orange/pink 
MAKE 9 different circles of 3 colours each for part one.

Finger wrap of 4 wraps.
ROUND 1: cont. in same col. [ch2 counts as first dc], 12dc into circle wrap, sl st to complete
ROUND 2: [ch2 counts as first dc] 2dc in each st, sl st to complete. [24dc]
ROUND 3: [ch2 counts as first dc], 2dc in first st, 1dc in next st work alternate 2/1 to end of round, sl st to complete.

Set to one side or keep safe on a ring. We will be making all of the 9 blocks first before we lay them out and join then together.





 NEW COLOUR WAY FOR THE BOBBLE HEX BLANKET WILL SOON BE AVAILABLE
This hex blanket was the inspiration for this mini cal



And this joining stitch from 2012 was the inspiration for the join



PART 2: Purples

Gather together all you scrap shades of purple in your chosen weight of yarn.  
5mm hook for Aran
4mm hook for dk [slightly smaller wrap or blanket]

The redder the shades are, place them next inline to the red/ornange ones as the below picture shows


Todays PART 2 is to make 9 x 3round circles in 6-9 shades of purple using the above pattern

and i bet you can guess what colour will be next in line? lol 
JOINING CIRCLES TOGETHER
I am going to give you 3 colours and then the joining pattern because after 3 colours you will need to decide on a wrap or blanket....
Wrap: a long row of 6 blocks [9 motifs in each colour] over 6' long
or
Blanket: 3 rows of 3 colours side by side
so one more colour to come and you will be going them together


PART 3: Using the same circle pattern make 9 circles in shades of green
