Ineke Mooijenkind is from the Netherlands, a beautiful town called Gouda. This corner of the world is known for one of my favorite things…Gouda cheese!  Oh, and Stroopwaffles…you haven’t lived if you haven’t tasted the wonderful sweetness of this delightful, wafery cookie.  Delish!

Well, I digress…

We’re really here today to tell you about Ineke’s upcoming CAL.  A must for your summer project list…the Something’s Magic blanket Cal!  Inked, who has been crocheting for 50 years, was inspired by her friend(and one of our favorite designers!), Helen Shrimpton. After finishing Helen’s Mandala Madness CAL she made the squared off addition using parts of the original MM design.  Since then, she is proud to have become one of the lucky testers of Helen’s designs.

And now… Ineke is ready to launch her own first CAL! When she was thinking about her first design, she naturally checked in with Helen who asked her what kind of blanket she prefers.  “Round, square, rectangle, made in one piece or joined with special pieces?” Here answer was, “I prefer to make a round, square, rectangle blanket, made in one piece and maybe joined with special pieces!” And so she did!

This design is really something…something magic!  I guarantee you will love this 11 week CAL which will begin on July 23, 2018.  The pattern will be available on Ineke’s Ravery page.  You’ll find more information and details about this amazing pattern here:

  3. This blanket is just stunning. I would love to do this but am relatively a beginner (8 months in.) I have completed 2 blankets so far along with many other things but I worry that with the multitude of different stitches I may get lost. Do you think this is more an intermediate/advanced CAL?

    1. Yes, it is definitely more of an advanced CAL but don’t sell yourself short! The beauty of doing a CAL like this is that you can stretch your limits and learn! If you join the Facebook Group Event, you’ll be able to ask questions and seek help. The designer is very involved and can provide a lot of support. I say you should give it a go!!!

    1. I have the same issue – I downloaded the pdf from Ravelry, but there’s no actual pattern. Just an introduction and description of the stitches. Not sure what I’m missing!
