It has started – woo hoo!!! The Mediterranean Summer CAL week 1 is out now! In week one we’ll be making three identical squares.
There are cluster stitches, front post and back post stitches and some standing stitches used this week. All the unusual stitches are fully explained, plus, keep on eye on my CAL page and on Deramores for a helpful video tutorial which should be completed by Monday.
The squares will measure 44cm x 44cm when finished and blocked. Blocking isn’t essential but it does help to remove any wavy corners and neaten up the edges ready for joining later.
If you don’t manage to finish all three squares this week – don’t panic! There should be time over the coming six weeks to catch up. And anyway, it isn’t a race!

If you haven’t grabbed your yarn pack yet there’s still time to do so. There are three colour packs to choose from; Storm, Aegean and Wild Herb. Head over to the Deramores website to grab your yarn pack – just click the image below. Or, if you are picking your own colours for the blanket, or just want to make a couple of the squares you can check out the Studio DK yarn range here.
Get the pattern
Download the pattern on the Deramores website HERE. Pick the Digital Pattern option and make sure to choose which crochet terminology you want (UK or US). You’ll be guided through the checkout process but, don’t worry, the pattern is completely free. As each part of the pattern is released over the coming weeks you’ll receive an email telling you there is a new update to download.
Check out my CAL page for more info and photos of the Mediterranean Summer blanket and keep popping back as I’ll be updating the page with video tutorials as the CAL progresses. As always, if you get stuck along the way just get in touch either through my contact form or join the dedicated Facebook group – Deramores: The Projects for lots of support and showing off your makes!
I’m so excited to see all your makes and hope you guys are too!
