CAL's (Crochet Alongs) have always held a special place in my heart. I love the unity of a group of hookers, coming together and working on the same pattern, helping out others along the way and sharing their progress as their project comes to life. CAL's aren't a new concept, they've been around forever, but joining up with other designers to give fellow hookers a variety each month was something I wanted to see come to fruition. I loved the idea of more variety being offered between multiple designers! So last summer, Sara (Accessorize This Designs) and Deanna (Hey Can You Crochet Me A) joined forces and created a joint, multi designer CAL: Croch-Eh CAL.
Each month, we feature a different designer. Creating a poll within the group, you vote on which pattern you'd like to see used in that month's CAL. Once the pattern has been chosen, we offer it at a special discount (40% off) EXCLUSIVELY for the Croch-Eh CAL group! We assign weekly tasks, and as the end of the week, we draw 3 winners who have completed said tasks to win a free pattern of their choice! At the end of the month, FIVE winners are chosen to win a free pattern AND everyone has access to a special discount code for that month's designer's shop!
January's CAL was my month, and Yoda the Wise One won by a long shot. Here are some of the incredible finished Yoda's we finished up this month!
I knew we had an incredibly talented group of hookers in the group, but I was absolutely floored by how amazing everyone's Yoda's came out! You guys seriously rock!!
February's CAL has just kicked off, and this month Accessorize This Design's is hosting, and the pattern with the most votes was her brand new pattern "Guy the LumberJack Moose". Seriously, this is the cutest moose, and you can even make a matching lumberjack hat for yourself! One of the bonuses to the CAL is there are no restrictions. You don't need to use a specific yarn, hook or colours! (there are recommended ones in the pattern, but feel free to mix it up! We love seeing all the different versions!) Sara primarily uses Bernat Blanket yarn, but you can use any weight of yarn you would like!
Come on over to our group Croch-Eh CAL to grab the special promo code for 40% off (check out the pinned post at the top of the page) this month's pattern, and join us for another fun month of crochet! Can't wait to see you there!
