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 142 cm x 180 cm 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.

Below you’ll find a couple of videos covering week one and week three plus all the step-by-step photographs for the full six weeks.  As always, if you have any questions just get in touch.

The CAL ran in September 2019 on the Deramores website but, since their closure, the full pattern is available here on my website.

I hope you enjoy the Mediterranean Summer crochet along!

Happy Hooking!
