Clue #8 - Forget-Me-Not

It's time to work on some more small squares and this time it's not really a mystery because you know these steps since clue #3. The difference is now we are crocheting 28 of them, in two different colour combinations!

Already a CAL pro? You can skip the pictures and go directly to the complete diagram (or the video) at the bottom of the clue.

Colours

We will work 4 rounds in square A.4B with the following colours:

CAST ON + ROUND 1: 06 light jeans blue
ROUNDS 2-3: 05 light wash
ROUND 4: 01 white

Let’s get going!

CAST ON:
Work 4 chain stitches with light jeans blue, form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch.

ROUND 1:
Work 1 chain stitch (equivalent to the first double crochet).

Work * 2 chain stitches, 2 double crochets around the ring *, repeat *-* a total of 3 times.

Work 2 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the ring and finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch at the beginning of the round. Do not change colour.

Work 1 slip stitch around the first chain-space at the same time as you change to light wash, read COLOUR CHANGE TIP below. Cut the light jeans blue strand.

COLOUR CHANGE TIP:
To get the neatest transition when changing colour, work the last stitch before the colour change in the new colour.

ROUND 2:
Work 3 chain stitches (equivalent to the first treble crochet), 1 treble crochet around the first chain-space, 2 chain stitches, 2 treble crochets around the same chain-space, 1 chain stitch.

Work * 2 treble crochets around the next chain-space, 2 chain stitches, 2 treble crochets around the same chain-space, 1 chain stitch *, repeat *-* a total of 3 times.

Finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round.

ROUND 3:
Work 1 slip stitch around the first chain-space, 3 chain stitches (equivalent to the first treble crochet), 2 treble crochets around the same chain-space, 2 chain stitches, 3 treble crochets around the same chain-space, 1 chain stitch.

Work * 3 treble crochets around the next chain-space, 2 chain stitches, 3 treble crochets around the same chain-space, 1 chain stitch *, repeat *-* a total of 3 times.

Finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round, at the same time as you change to white. Cut the light wash strand.

ROUND 4:
Work 1 chain stitch, read CROCHET INFO below.

CROCHET INFO:
The round starts with 1 chain stitch before the first double crochet (this chain stitch does not replace the first double crochet).

Work * 1 double crochet in each of the next 3 stitches, 2 double crochets around the chain-space, 2 chain stitches, 2 double crochets around the same chain-space, 1 double crochet in each of the next 3 stitches, 2 half treble crochets around the chain stitch from rounds 2 and 3 *, repeat *-* a total of 4 times.

Finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch at the beginning of the round. Cut and fasten the strands!

Finished!

We have now finished one square A.4B, which should measure 8 x 8 cm.

Work a total of 14 of these squares in the same colour combination as shown here:

Now you just need to work 14 more squares in our second colour combination (as seen below).

CAST ON + ROUND 1: light lilac
ROUND 2 - 3: lilac
ROUND 4: white

Doris 26.04.2017 - 20:47:

Könnte ich bitte schon mal sehen, wie die Blöcke angeordnet werden 😊

DROPS Design 27.04.2017 - 10:10:

Liebe Doris, das sehen Sie irgendwie in einem neuen Clue bald. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Sanne 26.04.2017 - 11:23:

Giver I et praj og kommer med en forklaring/ guide, når vi når dertil, hvor man får mulighed for at lave tæppet større end den oprindelige størrelse?

DROPS Design 27.04.2017 - 10:29:

Hej Sanne, Du finder størrelsen på tæppet hvis du klikker på Spring Lane - materialer. Hvis du vil have tæppet dobbelt så stort hækler du dobbelt så mange ruder, hvis du vil have det en halv gang større hækler du en halv gang mere af alle ruder. Når vi har hæklet alle ruder og skal begynde med montering siger vi til, da kan du bestemme dig for hvilke ruder du vil have flere af :)

Yvonne Marfelt 24.04.2017 - 01:34:

Jeg blev så skuffet over alle de små firkanter man skal lave og har helt opgivet at lave tæppet færdigt. Havde ellers hørt godt om det fra sidste år. Det kunne i godt have advaret om inden man bestilte garn. Øv nu sidder man med en hel pose garn i dumme farver uden en ordentlig opskrift.

Nanna 24.04.2017 - 00:03:

TIL drops, Det er ikke fordi der er mange små ruder, det er bare det at det er de samme, i stedet for 2*14 nye slags 😊 Jeg nyder tæppet, men sidste år var sjovt med de 8 forskellige blomster. Det er rigtig godt den måde I har sat tekst, tegning og billede op sammen 👍

Tanja 23.04.2017 - 19:52:

Jeg elsker hindrene, store og små. Jeg likte no. 3 så jeg er glad at det kom igjen. 28 i en uke er mye, men det er fordi jeg alltid ha månge prosjekter. Tusen takk, Drops! ❤️

Rita 23.04.2017 - 19:17:

Med en spændende lydbog i ørerne - går det som en leg at hækle de fine firkanter, jeg hygger mig - god arbejdslyst til alle!

Eva Fransson 21.04.2017 - 21:15:

Första gången för mig o jag är så besviken. Jättetråkigt med alla dessa smårutor. Jag trodde man skulle virka ett stort arbete o se hur ett roligt mönster växte fram! 😧

Mikkelsen 21.04.2017 - 14:44:

Det er første gang jeg er med og lager slike pledd. Gleder meg til vært hint. Det blir spennende å se resultat. Hindrene kunne gjerne kommet oftere.

Linda Pettersson 21.04.2017 - 13:54:

Det var ett väldans gnällande från många. "Är man med i leken får man leken tåla". Jag litar på Drops och ser med spänning fram mot slutresultatet även om vägen dit är lite fyrkantig. Kram

Sanne 21.04.2017 - 12:05:

:O) ja det er mange men jeg er igang med 3 tæpper . så er det rigtig mange , men det går jo nok , glæder mig til at se det når vi er færdige

Lykke Chetronoch 21.04.2017 - 11:43:

Hej. Vil bare sige tak til Drops-crewet for arbejdet med denne cal. Jeg kunne virkelig godt lide at lave netop denne lille rude, så jeg glæder mig bare til at lave mange flere. Er ikke helt færdig med dem fra de seneste uger, men pyt, der er jo ingen deadline. For mig er hækling en form for mindfulness, og ikke et væddeløb. Jeg glæder mig virkelig over at være med.

Marianne Fischer 21.04.2017 - 01:26:

Hi reading the negative comments about how many squares to do and its boring ect. ect. make me feel embarrassed of my country members from Denmark. Nobody forced you to start this and the pattern is free !! You dont even have to use their yarn !!! Drops have always done a great work for their customers and if you need pattern, guide what ever its free on their homepage. So thank you Drops for all your hard work for ppl that like to knit and crochet :)

Merete 20.04.2017 - 18:44:

Må også sige det er svært at holde motivationen og jeg er blevet nogle uger bagud så nu mangler det vildt mange små firkanter. Må som andre også sige at motivationen holdt bedre ved sidste års Cal.

Nicole 20.04.2017 - 17:53:

Please could you add the dates for the future weeks to the schedule so we know how long we have to make these? Thank you :-)

Grethe Hornsgaard 20.04.2017 - 17:41:

Pyh, 14 var mange, så 28 er rigtig mange, men klør på og glæder mig til resultatet.

Anna 20.04.2017 - 17:06:

👍💟 tack! Anna

Dorte Buus 20.04.2017 - 16:46:

Griner .. jeg har ikke engang fået lavet dem fra sidste uge fordi jeg syns det er for meget det samme og nu skal jeg så lave 28 mere ..

Vivian 20.04.2017 - 16:45:

Er det rigtigt, at der skal laves 28 lapper i ledetråd 8. Mvh Vivian

Elaine 20.04.2017 - 16:21:

Clue 8 is working out much bigger than the previous small squares, I have checked and the clues all say they should be 8cm x 8cm. This one seems closer to 9cm but the other 34 small squares are only 7cm. I'm a little confused what they should all be. I am loving the cal though. Thank you

DROPS Design 20.04.2017 - 16:41:

Dear Elaine, try to keep the same tension so that the squares measure as explained, ie 8 x 8 cm. Happy crocheting!
