Episode 7

Episode 7 is here!
See my progress in joining my Crozy Memories Blanket Squares, including a special new-to-me joining method.
I have a more spur-of-the-moment, freestyle crochet Hoodie wip that I talk about, as well as a new design-in-the-making!

My Crozy Memories Blanket Square Pattern
If you make this square (or more, a blanket would make my year!) and you're on Instagram, then please hashtag it so I can see! #crozymemoriesblanket

I am using the following yarns for my Crozy Memories Blanket:
Yarnfair Stripes Double Knitting in colour way 'Red Grey Brown'
Sirdar Crofter DK in colour ways 'Thatcher' and 'Seagrass'
Joining the squares with Sirdar Snuggly in a brown colour way which I can't be sure of, but possibly 'Soft Brown' 428.

The anti-tilt Zipper join can be found via 2 ways;
1. By joining the Facebook Group 'Scheeples CAL - International', then searching for 'Margaret Evans tilt'. The first search result is Margaret's mini-tutorial on her 'Joining Tweak' which includes a lovely infographic.
2. Clicking this link to my blog post where (with Margaret's permission) I have shared her guide:
