Mediterranean Summer Crochet AlongThe Official Deramores CAL 2019

The Mediterranean Summer Crochet Along is inspired by my trips around the Mediterranean.  It reminds me of the sea, the sun and the art of all the different civilisations that have called the Mediterranean their home at various points in time. There are hints of most in the blanket, from Minoan to Moorish, and of course, the ever-present sun.

The blanket is made of three different square designs with two of the squares featuring a sun design at the centre. There is a ripple section and band of little squares edged with arch motifs and little ‘sunbeams’. The finished blanket is edged with a pretty border to finish off.

The finished blanket size is 142cm x 180cm and the pattern comes in both US and UK crochet terminology. The skill level is Intermediate but would suit Adventurous Beginners too. There are cluster stitches, Front Post and Back Post stitches and some Standing Stitches. All the unusual stitches are fully explained and have step-by-step photographs to help you.  Plus, keep on eye on this page and on Deramores for helpful video tutorials.

The CAL will start on 20th September 2019 and will last for 6 weeks, with a new section of the pattern added every week on the Deramores website.  After you download week 1 you’ll receive an email each week letting you know that the next part of the pattern is ready. 

Below you’ll find links to each part of the CAL as it becomes available, along with links to purchase the yarn packs.  There are three colour options for you to choose from; Storm, Aegean and Wild Herb.  I can’t decide which one I like best!

I hope you’re all going to enjoy the crochet along!  I’ll be adding to this page as the CAL progresses so keep popping back.

Don’t forget to join the Deramores: The Projects facebook page for updates and lots of help. I can’t wait to see your projects!!

Happy Hooking!
