Crochet along (CAL) 2019
Are you looking for a Crochet Along (cal) for 2019? Well, i have four fabulous suggestions to kick you off. What’s a cal? Well, a cal or crochet along, is a group of crocheters working on a project (often the same project) for a designated amount of time. For those who follow me here or on insta you would have seen my Casual Granny Cal that i ran last year. I shared one square a month for 10 months and then added a joining tutorial to finish a blanket.
I’ve decided against running my own cal this year, so i wanted to share some exciting cals that are happening in 2019. First up is the amazing Marguerite Cal from designer Mobius Girl Designs.
The Marguerite Blanket
Oh my word, have you ever seen anything like this amazing blanket? It’s gobsmackingly gorgeous. Geometric designer Sandra from Mobius Girl Design is launching a cal for this stunning blanket on the 25th of January. Sandra has a clever knack of creating 100% original patterns with beautiful colour choices. Share your progress using the tag #margueritemotif. Find all the details for the cal here.
The Butterfly Effect Cal
Next up is the Butterfly Effect cal. This beautiful cal is brought to you by the Sisters In Stitch, Kay and Tess. They’ve teamed up with Yarn and Colors to create three different colourways for you to choose from. How great is that! There are ten parts with the first being released on the 24th of January in Inside Crochet. It will then be opened on the Sisters in Stitch Blog and The Yarn and Colours blog.
Beneath the Surface Cal
Australian Designer Shelley Husband describes her Beneath the Surface blanket as “solid and effective looking, yet simple crochet blanket is the perfect way to build on your beginner crochet skills”. As with all of Shelley’s designs she provides lot of clear instructions and helpful how-tos. This cal has already started but you’ve still got lots of time to join in. Check out all the details here.
