Introducing Heart of Friendship CAL
Heart of Friendship Crochet A-Long
You can find the main post, with all the story behind it HERE
“If you’re alone, I’ll be your shadow.
If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder.
If you want a hug, I’ll be your pillow.
If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile..
But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me.”

Heart of Friendship is a paid pattern and is available HERE
♥ The crochet a-long was hosted by the CAL-Crochet A Long group on Facebook, please sign in to Facebook and click on the link HERE to join the group.
♥ Each week I will post Hints and Tips to help you, as we work together to create this beautiful afghan-blanket-throw.
♥ There will be video tutorial links for the special stitches used in the pattern.
♥ There will be a list of colours used in each round, you will be able to download and print off the list to make it easier to work with.
Please note this cal has now finished but the weekly posts are still available to give you all the help and tips.
♥ What will you need?
You may use any yarn and hook size that you like to work with.
For both of my blankets, I used 6 colours, you may use as many or as few colours as you like.
The colour per round lists are numbered colour 1 to colour 6, all you need do is number your colours and follow the list.
There are no yarn packs available, but you can purchase the same yarn or choose your own colours, from Woolwarehouse for both Stylecraft Special and Caron Simply Soft or Deramores for Stylecraft Special.

Have fun with colour, in my Facebook group Helen’s Hookaholics you will find a huge album of colour boards, to give you lots of other ideas for different colour ways.
You may also like to take a look at some of my posts about colour, to give you more ideas.
A little idea for you…. take a look at the Heart of Friendship post, link is above, that will give you an idea of how the colour placement works, you can then decide which of your own colours you want to use, or look at the projects on Ravelry to give you ideas from the colours others have used.
