April Preemie Blanket - CAL Day 26

Helloooooo there! Day 26!

Today, I was browsing Pinterest and stumbled onto some crochet jokes! You guys should know by now, I am a BIG fan of terrible jokes! I just can't help myself! The lamer the better!

Here are some of my favs!

What happens if you dip a skein of blue yarn into the Red Sea?

It gets wet!


What do you call the steps it takes to crochet a project?

A chain of events!


Things you’ll never hear a crocheter say:

“The baby shower is tomorrow? Well, I guess I’ll just buy something.”

“Oh, that’s okay. I’ve got plenty of yarn.”

“Why would I need another hat pattern? I’ve already got one.”

HEHEHEHE HAHAHAHA! Terrible right??!!

You will need:

4.5mm hook
DK/8ply/light worsted weight yarn in minimum of 6 colours.

Yarn Note: I did not start with complete balls. All 6 of my balls were originally 100g balls with a little of each used. They are a mix of Stylecraft Special DK, King Cole Pricewise and Moda Vera Marvel 8ply for my 6 colours. You could choose 6 colours and follow my colour changes, or you could make every line a different colour (excellent way to use scraps) or you could even use some self striping yarn, or a solid colour.

Colour Changes: I change my colours by completing the last yarn over and pull through of the last stitch in the row with the new colour for the next row, so I don't have to join with slip stitches. Of course, this means you'll have to redo that one last stitch each day as you won't know what colour is next, but the finished piece will be much neater this way.

My Colours are

A - Beige
B - Blue
C - Dark Blue
D - Tan
E - Mint/Turquoise
F - Dark Grey
