Texture is Everything CAL-Part 4

Are you ready for Part 4?

This part was a challenge to design as I wanted something simple, yet beautifully textured. I started this part at least 5 times before I came up with this design idea.

This is how the blanket looked constantly as I was thinking about the best stitch combination for days. 😀


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.

Part 3 can be found HERE.

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

Gauge: 4 DC STS and 2 rows = 1” / 2.5 cm

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. 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
  • 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!
