Welcome to day 1 of the Spring Blossom Blanket CAL.

Today Part 1 of the CAL pattern is published, the first of 4 hexagonal motif designs.  If you have purchased the pattern through Ravelry you should go to your Ravelry library and download the updated pattern (Ravelry will have sent you a link as well so you can access it easily).

It took me a long time to decide which motif to publish first.  Should I give you the prettiest motif first?  I was very tempted, but then the practical side took hold and I decided on the simplest of the hexagonal designs.  This will allow you to have a good play with your colour combos, to test your tension/gauge and to learn the join as you go technique.

It includes a layout showing where Motif 1 sits in the design and details of what I did with my colours (but this is for information as I want you to try your own combinations!), as well as a photo tutorial of how to join these motifs as you go.  Oh, and it includes the first half hexagonal motif!

I hope you enjoy it 🙂  Please share your colours and progress here, on Facebook and on Ravelry, sharing makes the CAL so much fun!

Part 2 will be published in a week, and that will be a lot more floral looking than part 1!

Happy crocheting xxx
