Anna’s Tales CAL-Part 3

Welcome to Part 3 of my Anna’s Tales CAL!

I hope you are not tired of all the puff stitches you made in Part 2, because you’ll have to make some more in this part too. 🙂

As you can tell, I love designing patterns with puff stitches because they are adding a great texture to the finished item and they are SO PRETTY!

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.

Part 2 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.

If you love what I create, you can support me to create more beautiful free patterns by buying me a virtual coffee:

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!

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!
