Valentine's CAL

Today I started a crochet along (CAL) in my ravelry group with a friend.  So far there are 5 of us who plan on making the patten.  What pattern is it?  It is a square crochet cable pattern that has 4 hearts in it.  Crochet cables are not a common thing.  When you think of cables you usually think of knitting.  So a group of us wanted to learn, and possibly be able to translate cable knit patterns into crochet patterns as a result.  Here is the free pattern that we are using for the CAL.  The pattern says that it is for an afghan, but I'm making a hot pad or a dishcloth by using cotton yarn for it.  Right now I'm on round 6.  I plan on finishing it tonight.

I've been busy making lots of things, but I can't share anything yet because they are for my Valentine's swap partner.

ETA: The pattern link works now.  Thanks for letting me know about the error :)


  1. I can't get the link to work. I would like to try some crocheting as well as knitting

  2. Hi Kristy! I tried to look up the link, but it came up as an error?.. at least for me it did. I'm sure I'd be interested in joining your CAL, if I can find it!... Have a great weekend! ~tina

  3. Thanks for letting me know about the link error. I guess thats what I get for blogging when I'm tired, lol. If you both do the CAL, I want to see your finished square. :)
