Winter 2021 Crochet-A-Long (CAL)

Here in Saskatchewan, Canada we have had some abnormally kind weather lately. We were really thankful for the mild weather while we moved (our new place is 110 kms from our old place). At the end of November last year we had a ton of snow. I’ve linked a local news article below for fun.

We are nowhere near done unpacking but we have slept in our new house for a few nights now and I’m missing my crochet addiction. I know a lot of you will be working on Christmas gifts so because of that and because of my move I’ve planned for my next Crochet-A-Long (CAL) to begin on the first day of winter; that is December 21, 2021. Some of you might be frantically finishing gifts, and that’s okay, you can still join us as soon as you’re ready!

Our mild winter hasn’t given us much snow yet. This is our backyard, there’s another empty lot to the left that is ours and the trees between us and the neighbour mark our property line there.

My very creative title (sarcasm) for this CAL is “Winter 2021”. You might see me refer to it as “2021 Winter” at times because that’s how I have it saved on my computer; I’m trying to stay organized now that I have more than a year’s worth of pattern designs!

Similar to my previous CALs, you can purchase this pattern (the full written pattern, with charts, for both techniques) on Ravelry or Etsy or you can follow along on my blog for free! Sign up to my mailing list to be notified of the pattern release and each free section.

Processing…
