Crochet alongs and more...!
By Florence Roberts 1 years ago

Well, over the last few months you have all taken part in a lot of CALs and KALs with us! We are always so pleased to see so many eager knit and crochet fans taking part and enjoying all of these lovely patterns! 

The patterns for the CALs are all still available to download for free, and although the yarn colour packs are no longer in stock, the yarn is still available to purchase. 

We have rounded up all the CALs into one place, so if you missed out the first time, it is not too late to crochet up one of our lovely patterns! 

We started off with the Flower Garden CAL in May 2017. This wonderful pattern was designed by Lynne Rowe and the exclusive colour scheme was chosen by Heather Leal.

This CAL requires Stylecraft Special Aran (100% acrylic).
