April Preemie Blanket - CAL Day 6

Good morning all!

You know, I always get a bit stumped with what to write before a pattern. Especially when I'm uploading so frequently, like with the hat drives, and this CAL. I feel like we've already covered the details you need for the project!

So I thought today (and for the rest of the CAL) I'd share a fun fact with you! Did you know that April 6th is Caramel Popcorn Day? No? Well, you do now!

I don't know about you guys, but there is something magical about caramel popcorn. I'm a HUGE salted caramel fan, so adding caramel to buttered popcorn, in my opinion, is the best idea for popcorn ever! That combination of sweet and salty, oozy, sticky and crunchy, sends my taste buds into a spin!

What's your favourite snack?

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
