2023 Temperature Filet CAL: February 26 – March 4

February is over and I still haven’t been able to use my below zero color. This is our 5th winter back in Minnesota and the first one where we haven’t have a “high” of below zero! We did get close at the end of January – we had a day where the high was only 2 degrees. But still – that’s not a negative temp. My poor deep purple is feeling very left out of this rainbow blanket!

This week we are finishing off February and starting the March block. If you are just finding this CAL, please check out the details post for all the usual pattern information.

February – Northern Hemisphere (winter – cold thermometer)

Row 28 (February 26) : 18 , 3 , ( 1 , ) x3 then 12

Row 29: 18 , 3 , 18

Row 30: dc across

This ends the temperature-colored rows.

Rows 31-32 (2 rows): (in filler color) dc across – do not cut yarn!

SPECIAL SLPIT Row 33 for even-day months only: see picture tutorial directions – or scroll below the Southern Hem block to find just the written directions.

February – Southern Hemisphere (summer – hot thermometer)

Row 28 (February 26): 18 , ( 1 , ) x5 then 12

Row 29: 18 , 3 , 18

Row 30: dc across

This ends the temperature-colored rows.

Rows 31-32 (2 rows): (in filler color) dc across – do not cut yarn!

Row 33: see directions below

The Special “33rd Row” for Even-Day Months

Used in Feb, April, June, September, and November. Each block in this pattern will end up the same size, and have same stitch count, after the sc edging. Since the number of days in each month varies between odd and even, the even-day months require the 33rd dc row to be split into two sc rows. This step keeps the Filler Color evenly placed on the top and bottom of each block while keeping the stitch count (block size) the same on the sides of each block.

Row 33 is done split into two rows of sc on the top and bottom of the block for even-day months only:

  1. Ch1, turn; sc across top of block (41sts). Leave tail & cut filler color.
  2. Rotate your block clock-wise (or counter-clockwise if you hold the hook in your left hand) and join the Filler Color with a sc into the bottom of the first st in the FDC/chain; sc across the bottom of the FDC/chain (41 sts). Do not cut your yarn.
  3. Ch1, rotate your block clock-wise to work up the side. *1sc into the side of the sc row, 2sc into the side of each dc row, 1sc into the side of the sc row; 2sc into the first st, sc across, making 2sc in the last st; * Repeat between the * to work down the next side and across the bottom of the block. Slst to starting sc.

Top & Bottom: 41 sc sts

Left & Right: 66 sc sts

Corners: 1 sc st

After working February – and understanding the need for the splitting of the 33rd row – you may wish to begin the remaining even-day months with a row of sc in your filler color, you’d then end your block in a row of sc filler color as well, and THEN complete the normal sc edging around the entire block. It saves a couple ends.

Let’s begin March!

Row 1: (in filler color) FDC 41

Chain Start Method: (in filler color) Ch43, dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch3 at beginning counts as the base ch and first dc – 41 sts.

Row 2 (March 1): dc across (41 sts)

Row 3: dc across (41 sts)

Row 4: 20 , 20

Row 5: 20 , 20

2023 Temperature Filet CAL – Post Locator

Finding this CAL after 2023? Please note these important pattern notes for the CAL-

  1. Do NOT cut your yarn color until you know what the next day’s temperature will be. Why? Because you can save on end sewing if the next day is in the same color range.
  2. Remember to ALWAYS TURN your block with each row – even if you are using a new color.
  3. With the exception of February, Row 2 will always begin the month’s colored temperature rows.
  4. New to my filet pattern writing style? Please read this guide before you attempt to begin.

A second row-joining post tutorial was intended after April…but was never made. 🫣 Pitfalls of attempting to run a business, homeschool 6 kids (5 grades), be a present mom, be a taxi driver, feed the masses, and oh yeah – be a wife, too! 😆 ….Wait – I know you’re now wondering about the house cleaning, laundry, and dishes (so many dishes). I don’t do much of that! I divide most of that stuff up between the kiddos. I vacuum, dust (sometimes), and do the deeper cleaning things. I am very strict about the kids not leaving their crap about the house. So, our house is probably the cleanest house of 8 you’ll ever enter. 😉 ANYHOW…please see the final CAL post for the tutorial that shows you how to join the second and remaining rows.

September 1-7 :: 8-14 :: 15-21 :: 22-30

October 1-7 :: 8-14 :: 15-21 :: 22-31
