Hello and welcome to the Textrure is Everything Crochet Along!

I am so excited to run a crochet-a-long again this year and I hope you will enjoy creating this beautiful design with me!

THE PATTERN IS FREE ON MY BLOG, CLICK HERE.

Here’s all the information you need before the start:

The story behind the name:

As all you know, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE texture and try to use different stitches in my patterns all the time.

That’s how I came up with the name of the CAL: Texture is Everything for me, that’s my way to express myself and share the joy of creating with you all!

CAL start date:

The CAL starts on 29/10/2021. It’s the perfect time (way before Christmas) if you want to gift this blanket to someone.

Part 1: 29 October 2021, Round 1-20
Part 2: 5 November 2021, Round 21-32

Part 5: 3 December 2021, Round 57-65
Part 6: 17 December 2021, Round 66-72

Starting from Part 4, the remaining parts will be released in every 2 weeks to give you enough time to finish.

Difficulty:

Advanced Beginner. Although, this is an advanced beginner pattern, beginners can join in too as the pattern will have CLEAR and EASY TO UNDERSTAND instructions with a clear photo tutorial.

Size:

The finished size is 157.5cm x 157.5 cm / 62″ x 62″ AFTER BLOCKING.

However, if you use different yarn weight (fingering weight or aran), the finished size will be smaller or bigger.

Gauge:

4 double crochet stitches = 1″ / 2.5cm

The finished size will also differ if you have a loose or tight tension.

Helpful tips:

Don’t get stressed about the time frame. It’s all about the joy of crocheting, so if it takes more time to complete each part it’s still okay! This is not a race. It’s a journey, our journey together to create something unique and beautiful with or creativity.

You can get the materials to be prepared for the start now or you can use up all your scrap yarn from your stash as this is a great opportunity for stash busting.

This will be a written pattern only with no charts. However, it will have a step-by-step photo tutorial with clear, close-up pictures.

Facebook group:

Before the start date, feel free to join my Facebook group where you can get some extra support from me and some other wonderful members of the team. You can join HERE.

PDF file:

The pattern will be FREE ON MY BLOG and it’ll be also available in a PDF format in my Ravelry store for a small fee. I will upload the parts on the release dates (shown above) and once all parts released, I’m going to merge the parts in one file and upload that too.

Thank you so much for your time to read through this information! I can’t wait to start and see all your beautiful creations!
