Bernat Waverly Crochet Along 2012 - Clue #1 & Clue #2

I have been following along with the Bernat Waverly CAL 2012 for these past two weeks.  I just wanted to share with you my finished Clue #1 and Clue #2.  You can join in too by going here.

My color inspiration comes from this beautiful picture from design-seeds.com. I decided to go with the yellow as my main color since it really pops out at me.

 The Bernat Waverly yarn collection does not have a lavender (boo!), so I opted to use a bright pink instead.


Clue #1 went well. I did have to go up to an 'I' hook size to keep the gauge though. I think I crochet very tightly. :)
 

Clue #2 took me three tries to finally get the correct gauge, finally going to a size 'K' hook. A few ladies in the Bernat forum suggested to keep your ch 5's really loose, that helped a lot! Working on motif # 5 and 6 I was so loose I could have gone down a hook size. ha ha


Overall, I am really liking this blanket. I played around with a few layouts with some of the blocks made so far. :)


Clue #3 is already out today.  I better get hooking!

More information about this project can be found on my Ravelry page.

  1. I'm doing this CAL too - I love your color choices. I haven't posted any of the clue 1 or 2 finished pieces on my blog yet (but do have my color choices out there). Will follow along to see your finished afghan !
