The Havana Cal Is Underway

Today, October 1st, 2018, is the first day of The Havana Cal.

This is a beautiful cal, with mosaic crochet work designed by Tinna Thorudottir Thorvaldar.

Tinna is a very creative designer who can take odd skeins of yarn and turn them into something unique and beautiful and now she's sharing her design with us, for free!

The Cal will be posted on Ravelry, with a new part each week. The first part has just been posted.

You can also join in with the Cal on the Pippin Crochet Club group on facebook and share your work with other members and with Tina.

I haven't started yet (apart from a swatch and perhaps... choosing yarn from my stash). But I've practiced the opening stitches by making some purses from another pattern designed by Tina: Mosaic Purses.

Here are my little purses below:

And from making Tina's pattern I have found, that although mosaic crochet may look complicated, the way Tina does it is remarkably easy and gets great results!

So do have a look. even if you can't join the Cal right away, it will still be there on Ravelry for when you have the time.
