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!

      1. I thank you for the pdf up to CAL day 7. Where do I find the rest. You gave me the link to start but can’t find the other pdf to get caught up with you.

        1. I hello I’m.Annieika
          I’m in Australia. So when does this cal start and where and when do I get notified of the pattern to start and to go and purchase my wool for the entire project
          Cheers Annieika

          1. It started 1/10/20 at 6AM MST. You can sign up for my newsletter or join my Facebook group for the most up to date posts 🙂

          1. I would like to do this blanket; however, I would like it to fit a FULL-SIZE bed.
            What changes would I have to make?
            I have some catching up to do. I just found this post.

    1. Do you know the total yardage needed if we want to use just one color so we can purchase the correct amount?

    1. Hi, Breann, I still haven’t able to download the pattern for part 8 of the 2020 scrapghan. I can access it on FB, but the link to the pattern seems to be broken. I’ve tried numerous times. It doesn’t show on your blog, which only displays up to part 7. Could you please send me a working link to part 8?

  1. Sounds like fun.
    Are you planning to do the Cancer beanies again this year? I was able to provide 30 beanies for a cancer center.

          1. I‘m in. Started one week ago and learned a lot – everyone of the five previous stiches was new for me and though easy to learn. It‘s such a great present and lots of joy. I admire your work, your tutorials – and you share it for free. Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Cheryl,
      Where can I find the Cal 2019?
      I missed it I don’t know where to go and find it. Could you please help Cheryl I would be great full if you could.
      Thank you
      Antonette

      1. I bought it on Etsy. That is the easy way to get the whole thing and know where you are going is you can plan colour changed

  2. This CAL Lapghan is beautiful! Look forward to learning some new stitches and using up some of my stash. Unless the yarn store beckons me. 🤷🏻‍♀️😂😂😂

  3. LOVE these scrapghans, already made one for my mom from another CAL, so this one will be mine. Can’t wait to see the stitches we will be using.

    1. Can’t wait! My yarn stash is out of control and threatening to take over the house. My new years resolution is to get it under control. This will help I’m sure.

  4. Just put on my request to join the page. I am already on the other facebook page. I’ve been wanting to do a CAL, but I wanted something that would be somewhat challenging, but not too hard and where I didn’t NEED to spend a ton of money on yarn, this sounds perfect and I can’t wait to start!

  5. Just started crocheting so have no yarn scraps yet but love the idea so thought it would be useful to keep and use when I have. Thank you0.

  6. I’m excited to do this with everyone. I thought the CAL started on Jan 4th, but the instructions say 1/10. Yet today I looked it up and I’ve got all 12 weeks available. I like the idea of all of us working on part one over the same time period. All of us looking forward to the next release. I guess I’ve enjoyed other CALs where we’re doing it as a community. 🤷🏼‍♀️
    Enough of my whining, I’m looking forward to improve known stitches and learning new ones. Thank you for a beautiful pattern and my future lapghan.

  7. Hi there i have never done a cal before but it looks really interesting, it will be great to learn new stitches as I have taught myself with YouTube videos. I have been a knitter since my kids were young but find it too painful now but really pleased that I can cope with crochet. I’m not sure how the cal will work is it on at a set time and we all crochet together. Thank you in advance looking forward to this.

  8. Hi!!! I started the CAL but I don’t have a big yarn stash and I don’t have leftovers. I have 3 colors I love but already know I am going to need more than 3 skeins. Can you say how much yarn we need for it? Thanks for everything you do!!! Jeanette

  9. Where is the pattern for the first rows of this CAL? I am new to this and starting one for the first time,
    Thank you

  10. Can you tell me how many rows not including the border. I’m using hometown yarn and the yarn is about 3-4 yrs old. I have 6 skeins of two different colors and 3 skeins of four different colors. I have a total of 6 different colors but I’m afraid this won’t be enough to complete the project. Each skein is 5oz but because it’s bulky I’m using about 3/4 of a skein per row. I’m thinking I’ll need to rethink my color repeat. Thank you.

  11. I am looking forward to doing theCAL! It is not my first and am excieted to be apart of this one! Thanks for the invite to do it!

  12. Hello! I just have a quick question, how many rows total, not including the border, will we have when finished?
    Reason I’m asking: I wanted to try a temperature blanket this year but was torn about not doing the CAL (won’t have time to make both) so I decided to do my temperature blanket colors within the CAL!
    Thank you! And thank you for doing this CAL! The 2019 CAL was my first finished crochet project and I cannot tell you how much it meant to me to be able to learn all of those stitches and make an entire blanket being an absolute beginner! Your patterns are written so well and the tutorials re so helpful! I was so proud to gift that 2019 scrapghan to my grandmother for Christmas as a thank you for introducing me to crochet. She loves it and proudly displays it in her living room! Thank you again!!!

  13. Hi. I’m a little late on starting. How do you start with Cal Afghan.? Does the pt 1 granny st.
    Begin the Afghan or is there a base pattern to start? This will be my 1st Cal along and I don’t want to frog it from the get go. 🤔🙄 any info is welcomed. Thank you so MUCH. Can’t wait to start and use up my scraps! Ty
