Welcome to day 5 of the Hope in the Holiday's blanket CAL. Thank you to Bearye.com for hosting this amazing event. I have participated in each one of her blanket CALs and have loved each one of them! The designers that Claire gathers for these events are so talented and creative. I am so blessed to be able to work along side of them
Today's square is a filler square. Sometimes it is nice to just wind down a bit and do some crocheting that does not require a whole lot of time or attention. So lets do that today...
As a reminder you can get the other squares that have been released here. If you are not the blog hopping type, no worries, you can get all the squares for a massive discount here.
Purchasing the squares as a bundle gets you all the premium PDF patterns for each square on the day's they are released. This means that if you purchase today you will receive the squares that are released up to today. BUT not to worry because each of the following day's you will get that day's premium PDSF pattern delivered to you through SendOwl.com
I hope you are enjoying the Hope in the Holiday's blanket CAL hosted so far, Claire has certainly done an amazing job getting us all together and the squares for this CAL will not disappoint!

If you need to substitute with an other yarn and are not sure what to look for here are some tips...
What you will look for between labels
Is the weight the same?
Are the fibers similar, such as Acrylic, wool, alpaca, nylon, etc.?
Is the gauge similar or close enough to make it work?
Are the recommended hook sizes the same?
Another piece of information you can look for is the number of wpi (wraps per inch). This information is not always available so me be more difficult to compare.
You can read more about this in my blog post for Happily Hooked Magazine!
gauge is not overly important for this square, just as long as it is 8X8" to match your other Hope in the Holiday's square's, then you are good.
The chain at the beginning of each round does not count as a stitch.
Row 1- ch41 (or desired amount in multiples of 2); 2sc in 2nd ch from the hook; *sk1, 2sc in next*, repeat from * to * across; ch2 turn. (40)
Row 2-40: sk1, 2sc in next
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Add a border of single crochet to clean up the edges and also makesit easy to attach to the other squares
