Did you finish all 9 squares from last month?! It’s time to get started on your second set of squares!
Crocheters: We’re combining traditional crochet and Tunisian crochet! And don’t worry, you won’t need a special Tunisian hook for this one. Three strips of Tunisian Simple Stitch are joined together by sections of single crochet and an ingenious joining stitch that leaves NO visible seam! And Tunisian Simple stitch is a wonderful backdrop for embellishments like cross stitch.
The pattern can be downloaded here (FREE) and to help you with those new stitches we’ve put together some video tutorials, there’s even a playlist for the full Crochet-A-Long and all the techniques on Youtube. (Keep in mind that our techniques videos are NOT the pattern! These videos are here to help you understand the techniques featured in our patterns, please refer to your pattern for specifics.)
These small strips of Tunisian crochet are also a great time to practice new-to-you stitches like Tunisian Knit Stitch and Tunisian Purl Stitch, so we’ve included tutorials for those as well.
Once your strips are finished you’re ready to join them together and personalize your squares!

Knitters: We’re cabling! Nothing too complicated but a finished square with lots of visual interest. We’ll be working 1 x 1, 2 x 1 cables, we’ll show you how to use your cable needle and how to cable without a needle!
The pattern can be downloaded here (FREE) , even if you’ve never cable before you can tackle this one with the video tutorials we’ve put together for you. We even have a playlist for the Knit-A-Long blanket on Youtube to make it all easier. (Please remember that our techniques videos are NOT the pattern! These videos are here to help you understand the featured techniques, you’ll need to refer to your pattern for specifics.)
Don’t be afraid to ask questions and tell us about your progress! You can do that here, on Facebook, on Ravelry, or post pictures of your progress on Instagram and tag them with #WEBSMKAL or #WEBSMCAL
