Don’t pack your bags just yet because Iris Fait is back this week with another square for our Friends Around the World CAL! We’re staying in Israel for a little while longer to work on week 14! Iris has designed another lovely square called Dvora and we can’t wait for you to show them off on our Facebook page, CAL – Crochet A Long!
Dvora is the name of Iris’ beloved mother-in-law. The word is derived from Deborah, the prophetess from the Bible, but Dvora also means honey bee in Hebrew.

Don’t forget the extra three rounds you’ll need to do around each square to prepare for joining and finishing your blanket. Here is the link for directions on adding the extra finishing rounds.
This will be necessary to get your squares to the proper ending stitch count. It will vary slightly from week to week because the squares vary in ending stitch counts so be sure to follow the directions for each square. You may choose to add these extra rounds now or later.
We’re back on the road next week…still a long way to go on this trip around the world!
