It’s time for the third and final section of the Alera Shawl, the project for the Codex Alera CAL! I hope those that have participated are enjoying the crochet-along! We’ve had some good discussions about the book and shawl in my Facebook group, The Studio Bunch.

Reading Schedule

Here is the reading schedule for the last few days of the CAL.

May 13 Chapter 41

May 14 Chapter 44

Prizes

We’ve already given away two prizes! The first was the promotional yarn giveaway via the Instagram account for Ancient Arts Yarn, who also provided the yarn I used for the original Alera Shawl.

The second prize was 2 skeins of Ancient Arts Yarn Lascaux Worsted, courtesy of Ancient Arts Yarn. And a bonus prize of 2 skeins of baby alpaca worsted!

The next prize will be announced today! This includes the braided gold leather shawl cuff in the photo below from Knox Mountain Knit Co, along with a free pattern of your choice from me, a Banana Moon Studio stitch marker, and a Banana Moon Studio button. I’ll be announcing the winner in my Facebook group, so be sure to visit today!

Remember that public social media posts that include the event hashtags count as entries for the giveaways, and there will be one more on the last day of the CAL, May 15. The event hashtags are #CodexAleraCAL and #bananamoonstudio.

V-st section

Note When working the first row of v-st 2 dc will be placed together in the same st with a st skipped between each group of 2. Each group of 2 dc counts as a v-st.

The dc themselves will be skipped, in other words, no stitches will be worked into their tops, except where the instructions specifically state otherwise.
