Garden State Afghan CAL – Week 6

Hope everyone is enjoying the pattern and CAL.   Please post photos on Facebook and Ravelry – love to see what you come up with!  As always, if you need help, please contact me via comments here,  or email,  but if I am not around at the moment, I encourage you to interact with fellow CALers on my Ravelry Board or my Facebook CAL group.   Another suggestion for help would be the wonderful tutorial photos and VIDEO put together by Iris van Meer on her blog.  The video is in Dutch only but for those who need a visual it may be helpful no matter your language.  Thanks, Iris!  And just a reminder that Yarn Packs in the Suggested Scheepjes Stone Washed XL are still available atDeramores.

For week 6 we have the 8″ motif, Nubby Flower, and the 4″ motif, Turn Around, and you will work each 4 times in different colorways.  The pattern is posted here and can be printed with the Print Friendly button.  You can also download the pattern for free to store in your Ravelry library with coupon code #JULIEYEAGERGARDEN (expires June 30, 2016)  the Ravelry pattern page.  Please make a Ravelry project page and share your photos there.  Please do not share the code anywhere on the internet, but encourage people to come here to see the code.  If anyone sees the code shared online please let me know.

As always, thanks to my wonderful testers and to Iris van Meer for her Dutch translation.  Thanks also to Eunbi in Colorado Springs for her Korean translation .
