Crochet along (CAL) – January

January 2013 crochet along madness

I’m participating in two square crochet alongs right now. This is my first time trying out CAL and needless to say, I’m completely hooked! It’s not too late to join, even when we’re a few months in, just start with January and work your way up. It might take a while but it’s so much fun! :) You don’t have to do all the squares, you can do just the 6″ or just 1 12″ if you like. You choose the yarn, colors and hook size and what you want to do with them in the end. I think I´ll end up with a few blankets after this crochet along.

Crochet granny squares – My results!

Attention: Apart from the owl square and Peachy Blossom square, my squares were pretty far from 6″ and 12″ in size, I used bulky yarn and a 7mm hook so they were pretty huge.

Here’s what I made:

6" - Woolly's snowflake square from AuntieElle's blog crochet along

12" filler - KISS FIST crochet along

6" Peachy blossom and owl granny crochet along

12" Kata granny square crochet along

12" Snowfall crochet along

12″ Snowfall – Cat likes this one too!

As you can see I try to crochet them together as I go along so I don’t have to do it all in December when the crochet along is finished. The big ones, Snowfall and Kata aren’t quite finished because GASP:

I ran out of yarn


Shocking and horrifying! I was out of town too and not a yarn shop around. I had to wait all weekend to get it done, it wasn’t easy.

I’d love to hear your opinion on the squares. I’d like it even more if you’re doing the same CAL so we can compare notes!
