Hi there! Thank you for your interest in joining my Stitch Sampler Scrapghan Crochet Along 2020!
What is a crochet along (CAL)?
A crochet along is when a pattern is broken up into parts and a groups works on each section at the same time. It’s fun because you can share your progress with each other and ask questions!
I like to do things pretty casual for a crochet along. There is no “signing up” to join, you simply follow along with the pattern as the different sections get posted! The best way to stay updated on release dates and things is to join my FACEBOOK GROUP and/or SIGN UP FOR MY NEWSLETTER.
Here are the details–
– We will start on Friday, January 10th.
– The CAL will last 13 weeks and will end on Friday, April 3rd.
– Each week a few rows of the pattern will be released with a new stitch. There are 12 stitches total. The last week is the border.
– Each week there will be a brand new post on my blog with that weeks’ rows. There will be a PDF available to download on my blog each week for the duration of the CAL. After it’s over, the free PDF’s will be taken down and moved to my shops. So even if you get behind, make sure to get the printable every week! 🙂
– The stitches are mostly beginner and intermediate level. There will be photo tutorials and/or video tutorials for the more difficult stitches. (not for every stitch though 😉 )
– Materials: worsted weight yarn & J/6.0 mm hook
– I used a J/6.0 mm hook for the entire blanket. Some of the stitches are tighter or looser than others and you can change your hook size to account for this. I will add this information to the ‘Pattern Notes’ section for the weeks you might want to adjust your hook size.
– Approx. finished size (including border): 40″ X 48″
– The finished blanket is a lapghan size. If you would like to change the finished size, a multiple number that your starting row needs to be will be provided. If you change the number of stitches (even if it’s the correct multiple) you still might need to adjust a few of the stitches to make them work. Most of the stitches will be fine. The change the height of the blanket, add 2 or 4 rows to each week. If you add rows it needs to be an even number of rows. This will ensure that all of the stitches that have a front and back are on the correct side.
– It’s the perfect project for scrap yarn, but you don’t have to use scrap yarn (I didn’t 😉 )
– There will be a new post for each week, but I will also link each week at the bottom of this post. You can save this post on Pinterest or Ravelry!
