Aurora by Vanessa Smith


It sure looks like you all had a blast with Vanessa’s Delilah square last week and we promised you some more fun this week!

We’re still in South Africa with Ness, from Hooked on Sunshine for week 25 of the Friends Around the World 3 CAL.  She’s designed another spectacular pattern for us and since you already got the low-down on the fun-loving Ness last week, we’re going to get right to it!

Check out our post on yarn requirements here.  Here’s what the testers used for this square:

Silvana:  Herrschners Worsted 8, 93 grams

Aprille:  Stylecraft Aran, 85 grams

Micki: Worsted, 101 grams

Additional Pattern Info

Don’t forget you will need to add an extra three rounds to your square to achieve the final 48 st/side count which is necessary for joining. You can find the instructions for all squares here. Translations for these additional rounds can be found here.    The extra rounds 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.

We have an extra special designer in store for you next week.  She’s an old friend who we haven’t seen for awhile.  I am super excited to see what she has in store!  We are loving seeing all of your pics…keep ’em coming!  Share them here, CAL Facebook group page.

Until next week!
