What makes a crochet along so much fun?

What makes a crochet along of CB's Creations so much fun?

Of course, you as a crochet fanatic know exactly what is meant by a crochet along! But if you haven't been crocheting for that long, you may never have heard of a crochet along. So if you are wondering what a crochet along is when reading the title, I have a nice blog ready for you to read a detailed description of what a CAL is, as it is also called. What is a crochet along?

In short, a crochet is along: in a few weeks, crocheting a crochet pattern together. Every week you receive a part of that crochet pattern.

Every year I try to come up with a unique creation for a crochet along, which we can crochet together in about 5 weeks. I try to take into account as much as possible what I design and the yarn to be used. It is of course nice if the subject appeals to as many people as possible, the larger the group, the more fun! It is great to see that many enthusiastically participate in a crochet along. Participants share with which material one participates, every week the progress is proudly shown. Everyone helps each other and has a nice word for the crochet skills of another. There is a great connection in the group because you are working on the same project together.


Yarn package or own material

The list of materials will be sent well in advance. You are completely free to choose the material you are going to use to participate in the crochet along. Nothing is mandatory and everything is allowed. So dive into your own stock if you can make nice combinations for the cal.

I have also put together a ready-made yarn package, for when you find it easy to have everything at hand at once. Everything you need to join the crochet along is in there, including something extra. You have to take care of the stuffing and a crochet hook yourself.

No time pressure

You can join the crochet along at your own pace. It is not mandatory to finish and show part of the pattern after one week. It is nice to see the progress of everyone, but no obligation at all.

The parts of the pattern can be found in the files and they remain there until the group closes. It is advisable to download them, to have a pattern in your own collection of patterns.

If it is not convenient to crochet for a week, you can finish the pattern when it suits you.


There is always help

If you have any questions, you can always ask them. You will always get an answer to your question. If it is not from me, then from one of the test crocheters who are also present in the group. But you will see that other participants in the crochet along are also willing to answer your questions! After 5 weeks of crocheting, you've crocheted a creation to be proud of!

A crochet along is also an ideal way to get acquainted with my style of pattern making. You also have the certainty that a new and unique crochet pattern will be made! They are clearly defined patterns that have been thoroughly tested by my team of Super Test Crocheters. All errors have been removed during testing, a typo can be overlooked, it is nice if you report it, then I correct it immediately.

This year the honour is to Nelson and his Banjo to shine in the crochet along. This green cuddly frog Nelson plays the banjo!! It is his lust and his life. Nelson loves to play bluegrass songs! If his peers want to sing a song, Nelson likes to make the music!

In 5 weeks’ time you crochet this super cute frog including its banjo. If you actively crochet along and show Nelson and Banjo before July 27, I have a nice surprise for you!


What makes a crochet along so much fun for me?

I love to see that everyone crochets the same pattern and that each creation gets its own character. One is even more fun, sweeter, funnier than the other!

All the photos in this blog, except the last one, are creations of my Super Test Crocheters from Nelson and his Banjo. Here you can also see that each Nelson has its own character!

I can't wait to meet your Nelson!
