Crochet a block a month February

Hi everyone,

Have I mentioned how I love to crochet. I do but other things have been taking up my time but I decided to do something about it.

I joined The 2015 BAM CAL on Ravelry.  (Block A Month Crochet Along)  Basically starting in January and ending in December they will have 3 squares each month, a main square (picked by the moderators), a filler square (which will be nominated and voted on by the members) and a 6” square (also selected by the moderators).

Its a chance to go slowly making a big thing. I plan on making an afghan for our lounge. I am calling it my Slow Crochet! Anyway here are my blocks so far.

I will be posting my blocks once a month as I go along.


What did you think? Which one immediately drew your eye?

Happy making everyone!

    1. Thank you for playing along Mrs P ;-). That one is called Pizzazz and it was very difficult for me to do. By far the most difficult. The other ones were relatively easy but required concentration. I had to unravel a few times because I lost count on one row then when I got to the next row the mistake became obvious.

    1. The funny thing is the bottom right one is the one I actually messed up on so much that I didn’t finish the last 2 rows! I think us creative maker types are very hard on ourselves..non? Knitting is so much fun. When I got into making things I thought i would be crocheting a lot but then I tried knitting and I was hooked. What’s on your needles currently?

      1. Yes, sometimes we are so critical of our makes – I would never have known!
        I’m making a little blue bolero to go with summer dresses. Still wishing for the warmer weather to arrive!

    1. Thanks Sue! It looks like Pizzazz is turning out to be quite popular! I might give it another go and play around with colour placement 😉


    1. I hope so! I am working through the scraps of yarn I have left over so the colour matching is a bit hit and miss sometimes. I decided I wasnt going to buy yarn to make the blocks but to use whatever is already there. It will get interesting when I run out of theses colours that are dominating the 4 block…ick


    1. Isnt Craftsy just awesome? I too have a few classes that have just taken my sewing to a whole other level; and I havent even finished watching them through! 😉 Sadly I have yet to start on the Knit your own socks class I bought last year. Ah well.

      1. I’ve watched most of mine, but haven’t actually ‘done’ the lesson. I think my next one is going to the the Islander jacket. I’ve had the pattern traced off for months, watched the video but not bought the fabric!

  1. Bottom right for me too: think it’s the colours you’ve chosen as much as the design. I’ve had a stab at learning to crochet recently, but it certainly hasn’t ‘clicked’ yet! Thimberlina I need to check out those links you recommended…

    1. I agree with you and looking at them again now I think its because they have 3 colours? With these I wasnt paying too much attention to colours but as I go along I will 😉
