Hi there! Thank you for your interest in joining my Stitch Sampler Scrapghan Crochet Along 2021!

Stitch Sampler Scrapghan Crochet Along 2021 - Hi there! Thank you for your interest in joining my Stitch Sampler Scrapghan Crochet Along 2021! We're going to spend the next 13 week making this pretty blanket, one square at a time!

What is a crochet along (CAL)?

A crochet along is when a pattern is broken up into parts and a group 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 8th.

– The CAL will last 14 weeks and will end on Friday, April 8th. Each part will release on Fridays at 6 AM PST

– Each week a new square pattern will be posted. There are 12 squares total and each square is a different stitch. The last 2 weeks are for sewing the squares and the border.

– Each week there will be a brand new post on my blog with that weeks’ square. 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 many of the stitches.

– Materials: approx 1300g (total) worsted weight yarn & H/5.0 mm hook

– Approx finished size (lapghan): 50″ x 37″

– I used an H/5.0mm 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. When adjusting a square for size keep in mind that it’s easier to fix a square that’s a little too small than one that’s too big.

– Each square requires approx 85 – 130g of yarn, depending on the stitch. I made each square a solid color. But you don’t need that much of each color. Many of the stitches would look really nice in stripes, so smaller amounts of yarn would be perfect.

– Each square is approx 12.5″ after steam blocking. I steam blocked all of my squares before sewing. They were all approximately the same size, but blocking helped even them out. I found the biggest of my squares, then steam blocked the rest to match that largest size so they were all the same before sewing.

– You’re squares don’t necessarily have to be the same size as mine. But they all do have to match. For example, if you’re first square turns out to be 13″, that’s ok. Just make sure the rest of your squares are about that size.

– It’s the perfect project for scrap yarn, but you don’t have to use scrap yarn (I didn’t 😉 ). I used Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn in 7 colors (1 skein of each color). 6 colors for the squares and one for joining and the border.

– 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 been wanting to do some squares. Glad you are doing this this! Now that holiday over, maybe I can make some thing for fun!

    1. Thank you Breann for doing this for us. I did the beanie CAL this summer and my crocheting really improved, plus loved making for donation. I’m looking forward to more skill improvement with this CAL!

  2. I can’t wait to get started. I have so much scrap yarn and this seems like the perfect way to use it up 🙂

  3. I’ve inherited 3 large totes of yarn and can’t wait to do a CAL! Excited to learn to stitches and make an Afghan with all the yarn.

      1. I am SO worried I’m missing the Part 2 lesson of the Stitch Sampler Scrapghan! I see different parts, but can’t seem to find in consecutive order… I am so confused.😔😥

          1. Cant wait, using scraps for my sons blanket & colors are his choice?? Fun Suzette stitch.

    1. Hi Arleen… I went off Facebook in November. I waited for 6 weeks. Then signed up again, this time only groups no “friends”. I craft for several charities and this was simpler for me. The ads are better/fewer and I can connect with groups. Just thought this might help. Just so you don’t think I’m a hermit 🙂 I purchased a new address book and make 2 phone calls to friends and write at least one letter/card each week. Works great!

  4. I can’t wait to get started. This will be my first time doing a CAL for a bigger project. Hopefully I can keep up.

  5. Very excited to join in your CAL! My 7 scrap color options vary between 116g and 570g. Would you make recommendations each week if the new square takes more or less yarn? For example, I would like to use the color I have the least yarn (116g) on the square you used the least (85g) on.
    Many thanks, I am enjoying the inspiration on your blog very much!

  6. I have done you’re last two scrap afghan & hat CALs. I learned alot of new stitches! Best of all I was able to donate to others so much!! My husband & I also keep a bag with a few hats & scarves in our car. There’s times we see someone that’s cold & we hand them one!! It’s such joy to brighten their day!! You make this possible!! God bless & Happy New Year! Thank you! I never made hats before doing your CALs.

  7. I look forward to learning and jointing in with the Stitch Sampler Scrapghan Crochet Along 2021! I signed up on Facebook.

  8. Thank you for this CAL. I am trying to de-clutter my sewing room and have found a couple of boxes of yarn which would be great for this project.

  9. Thank you so much! I have been waiting for a CAL to start so I can work along side others and can ask for help! Let the party begin☃️

    1. This 1st stitch is so calming. Unfortunately I have only 1/3 of this 1st square done. Had to keep tearing out mistakes. Well 3 day weekend ahead. Time to catch up

  10. Just joining now. I am actually in the middle of an project now, but will catch up next weekend.

    I am excited about your stitches!

  11. Thank you for all the time you’ve taken to give us this fabulous scrapghan. I truly do appreciate all the designs you’ve shown us and the blanket will look great.

  12. Hey Briann. Thank you very much for this sample stitch Afghan project. I’m using it to make a large Afghan/cover for my bed. I linked this article to my Instagram posting, but I don’t know how to tag you or do any other kind of a media connection. Please let me know how you would like it connected to you. You can see my posting on Instagram – denmicone – thanks again. You’ll see I am playing around with 10 of the 12 patterns and trying out different colors. It is a fun project.
