Anna’s Tales CAL-Part 2

Happy New Year!

Welcome to Part 2 of my Anna’s Tales CAL!

It’s 2021 already, which means we’ll have a lot of new opportunities to try something new or achieve and set goals. 🙂

If you want to refresh your memory before start, you can find all of the information about the CAL HERE.

Part 1 can be found HERE.

If you prefer, the pattern is available as a downloadable PDF file. You can get it for a small fee on Ravelry HERE.

This pattern and photographs are the property of K.A.M.E. Crochet by Krisztina Anna Matejcsok-Edomer and are for personal and non-commercial use. You may not alter or sell this pattern in any way. You may sell finished products, but please credit K.A.M.E. Crochet if you can. Thank you!

Difficulty:                           Intermediate/Advanced

Finished Size:                   87.5cm x 87.5 cm / 34.5″ x 34.5″ AFTER BLOCKING

Stitches Used and Abbreviations:

You can find a detailed description of all of the special stitches used, in a PDF file HERE:

Gauge: 5 half double crochet stitches and 3 rows = 1″ / 2.5cm

Additional notes:

  • If a row/round starts with a Chain 1 or 2, this is not counted as a stitch, unless stated otherwise.
  • Slip stitches do not count as stitches.
  • CH 3 always counts as double crochet.
  • US terms used throughout
  • At the end of every round, there’s going to be a note with the stitch count, so you can keep track of your work easily and avoid any mistakes. It’s written in a different color; the first line in bold is always the total stitch count for the round (starting with round 18, this excludes corner stitches). Below that, I included a stitch count per side (excluding corner stitches) and per corner too, in case you prefer it that way.
  • When working on the corners, always remember that there might be a hidden stitch hiding under the corner stitches which is the first stitch of the previous row
  • When you make a normal puff stitch, it creates 2 loops on its top. I will refer to these loops as first loop and second loop. The first loop is always the one on the right and the second one is on the left.
  • Notes are written in a different color in (brackets) to help you through the pattern.
  • You can start each round as I did in the pattern or you can use a standing stitch or chains, it’s totally up to you!
