Festival of Fall Afghan CAL… Week 3!!!



I hope you enjoyed making your first 2 squares last week! This week, we will be making 2 more, and you will have 4 of the 15 done… If you are just joining in, you can get week 1 and week 2 posts in the Crochet with Me tab at the top of the page.

Each week we will be changing the color order up just a bit to make this a fun, whimsical Fall Afghan. But, you can make yours any color scheme you would like.. Some people are doing this as a scrapghan which is a great idea too!!! You can join Beatrice Ryan Designs CAL Facebook Group to see all the other projects..

Check out my squares for week 3… One is the same color scheme as last week(3 total of that one) and one is a new color scheme… I can’t wait to see how this all comes together!

I designed the Festival of Fall Square originally in 2016 for a Designer Project for the Moogly 2016 Sample Afghan. I decided it would be beautiful to make 15 Squares of this design and make our own lovely afghan! Since the design is a few years old, the particular yarn I used is discontinued in some of the colors… So I decided to go with Red Heart Yarn this time around, The material list for this project is in Week 1! They are very similar to the original colors made with Lion Brand Yarn.


Estimated Size:

Yarn and tension may vary and make your personal project slightly different. I am making this project along with you so the completed project size and yardage are only an estimate.

43″ x 68″ Blocked

Mariposa Prairie Bag Crochet Along… Week 2!!!



Are you ready for Week 2 of this fun CAL? This fun Mariposa Prairie Summer Bag will be a 3 week project… Two colors of yarn, one great bag!


This fun bag is a draw string style bag, you can open easily to put items in, and you can make 1 or 2 straps by just pulling up sections of the strap to create either strap style… Pictures below

Last week you made the bottom of the bag using your contrasting color. This week you will create the side of the bag using one simple stitch back and forth… Are you ready for Week 2??? So easy and quick!!!

One strap style drawn at the back of the bag
With two handles made from pulling up the strap on each side of the bag

Here are the details:

  • Week 1 (8/8/21) Grab your yarn and crochet the bottom of the bag
  • Week 2 (8/15/21) Crochet the side of the bag
  • Week 3 (8/22/21) join the bottom to the sides, make top of bag, make strap

It is that easy, I will walk you through each week!
