Dutch Rose Blanket CAL – Wrap-up!

Well, y’all, I’m sad to let it go, but the Dutch Rose Blanket CAL has come to a close. I hope everyone enjoyed creating this piece, and if you haven’t quite finished yet, please take your time – no rush! Post WIP and FO pics to Instagram with hashtag #dutchroseblanket or #dutchroseblanketcal and of course #cypresstextiles so I will see it sooner šŸ™‚

Dutch Rose Blanket Information

Running a CAL

Y’all, I love running crochet-alongs. I love offering direct one-on-one support to those who may need it. I love the sense of community that it creates in the groups and hashtags when we all come together and create the same thing. My favorite part may be that I love the different variety of all the blankets that can come from just one blanket design. Oh, that is the coolest. You really see everyone’s personality shine through their color choice and layout. So, thank you all! I couldn’t do all that without CALers, so I appreciate everyone joining in and posting pics along the way.

From your progress pics and questions, everyone sees the benefits of the little tips and tricks, alternated layouts, and color schemes. What a wonderful community event. Do not be surprised if I host back-to-back CALs forever, lol. It’s been about 2 years since my last one, but Dutch Rose really got me back into it. Thanks again for playing! šŸ™‚

Before I close the CAL, I wanted to share some other CAL info in case you’re interested in joining me, and also of course I have to brag on all the awesome makes y’all posted. There were so many, just I just picked a few from the Tree Huggers Facebook group and the Instagram hashtags.

  1. They are all glorious and make me want to just sit and crochet all day. (Darn work) I’ve made nine roses so far and planning to make a few more before I start on half hexies and grannies. It will be a WIP for a while yet, but it’s so beautiful to work on. Thank you for this wonderful design, Rachele.

    • Lol! Yes real life gets in the way haha – Iā€™m glad you enjoy Dutch Rose. I put a lot of positive energy into the design. It was very enjoyable to work on! šŸ™‚

    • Make it any time if you like – I always love seeing new WIP pics of old CALs šŸ™‚ Happy crafting ā¤ļø
