Indian Summer - The Official Deramores 2018 CAL by Leonie Morgan
This year we have asked the talented Leonie Morgan to create the Official 2018 Deramores CAL. Leonie Morgan has shared her story of the CAL with us and we thought what better way than to share it with you.
"The CAL began with the central square originally designed in completely different colours. The square had a lovely floral mandala at its centre and an Indian feel so I knew that would provide the theme for the whole blanket. After much fussing I settled on the colours for the CAL which reminded me of Indian Summers when the bold blues of summer soften into hazy autumn and sneaky shades of rust and umber creep into the landscape. So, merging the two ideas came the name for the CAL! Indian Summer
There are lots of Front Raised (UK) / Front Post (US) stitches and some popcorn stitches which give the finished blanket a lovely tactile surface. As there is quite a bit going on visually with this blanket I opted for a fairly simple border to tie it all together."
The finished Blanket size is 120cm x 180cm and Pattern comes in both US and UK Crochet Terminology. Suitable for Intermediate or Adventurous Beginners. You will require a 4mm (G size) Crochet Hook but if you are a very tight crocheter you may wish to go up a size, or, if your tension is very loose go down a size.
The CAL will start on 20th September 2018 and will last for 6 weeks, with a new section of the pattern added every week on Website, Social Media and on our Newsletter. Pattern release will be every Thursday at 10:00am GMT.

Indian Summer CAL
Loved it. Wasn't possible to do that much crocheting in one week but enjoyed it all the same.
I’m currently making Indian Summer in the beach colourway. I love the Deramores yarn, it’s my first time using this & it is beautifully soft and easy to handle. The pattern can be challenging but I absolutely love a challenge, so this is great for me. I’m also making good use of the Deramores FB page, which is extremely useful & supportive. Well done Deramores
