Part 2 of Ubuntu sees you growing your six diamonds some more. At the end of Part 3, you will have 6 completed diamonds.
I can’t believe the time has finally come for Part 1 of the Ubuntu CAL 2018. Welcome!! I hope you have SO much fun joining us on this journey and I cannot wait to see your work-in-progress photos.
In this post, I will take you through the special stitches and techniques that you will be using during the Scheepjes Ubuntu CAL 2018. The photo tutorials below will help familiarise you with the skills needed to complete the crochet-along. Please note that it is not essential for you to read through the photo tutorials below. […]
