Seaside Winter Blanket: Square 10 Pennington

Hello Seaside CAL-ers and welcome to Part 10 of our Seaside Winter Blanket CAL!

We only have a few more stops to make along the lovely Kwa Zulu Natal South Coast before our Seaside Journey comes to an end.

Your growing blankets are all absolutely gorgeous - please continue sharing photos of your beautiful work in our SEASIDE WINTER BLANKET CAL GROUP.  You will find the Links to all posts relating to this CAL in the "pinned" post at the top of the Group Page.

I will be consolidating the weekly patterns into a single SEASIDE WINTER BLANKET PATTERN, which will be available for purchase on Ravelry.    The individual square patterns will remain FREE on my blog, so you can work at your own pace and make as many blankets as you like.

So far we have made:

Baby Blanket - 2 x UMZUMBE;  1 x SCOTTBURGH;  1 x RAMSGATE;  1 x UMTENTWENI;  1 x MARGATE;  1 x PORT SHEPSTONE;  1 x SHELLY BEACH;   1 x ST MICHAEL'S-ON-SEA;  1 x UMKOMAAS

This week we will be making the "Pennington" Square - the 10th CAL Square and the 9th small square, measuring 19cm x 19cm including the two border rounds.

We will be crocheting 1 more small square and 1 more large square before moving on to the border and edging of the blanket.

Pennington is situated about 74km south of Durban and is the ideal holiday spot for families of all ages.   The lovely tidal pool provides relatively safe swimming year round - perfect for toddlers and golden oldies alike!


(Please remember that the two Bonus Squares, "Amanzimtoti"and "Southbroom" are not included in my original layout and have therefore not been included in the count)
