Spring 2017 CAL - Sargassum shawl - Top Border & Edging

Monday, May 8, 2017

Welcome to the CGOA Spring 2017 CAL! In this crochet-along, we are making the Sargassum Shawl. Be sure to check out the main CAL post for all the details, including prizes and giveaway information, the full schedule, and more.

This is it! In this week's section we'll be completing the shawl with a top border and edging. You can find the Sargassum pattern here, and it has now been updated to include the complete pattern. If you're just joining us, don't worry - there's still an extra week to catch up.


We have another new technique in the top border - the linked dc stitch. Basically, this is a way of connecting dc stitches in the middle so they're less floppy. It does look different on the wrong side, so please take a moment to make sure you are on the correct side of your work.

I've loved watching your shawls come to life, and can't wait to see the new photos on the Facebook group and on the linkup on the main CAL page!

Remember to show some support to all our wonderful giveaway prize sponsors:

We couldn't bring you great CALs and prizes without them! You can find complete prize details and giveaway entry instructions in the main CAL post.

Happy hooking!
