Crochet with Me... Winter 2017 CAL.. Material List

I am so excited this year to present you with my 4th Crochet with Me… Winter 2017 CAL!!!!  This is a mystery afghan and to see prior years click on the Crochet with Me tab at the top of the site!!

You may be new to Crochet Alongs… So here is how it will work…

There is no need to join ~ But if you like to get it in your emails, you will see a box in the right hand sidebar ~Stay connected…. Enter your email and click on the “Subscribe Now” .. then you will receive the post by email…  I will be posting a section of the pattern once a week,,, Or you can tune in each Monday on my website!!We all make it and in about 12 weeks we will all have beautiful afghans!!

You will need approximately 3500 yards of worsted weight yarn. You can use as many colors as you like, but I suggest 4-6 colors.  We will be using an I hook..  That’s it for materials!!!!

This year I have a couple of surprises!!

I will be using Red Heart Yarns ~ With Love in White, Hot Pink, Blue Hawaii, Jadeite, Papaya and Aubergine!!

Red Heart Yarns has been kind enough to give all my fans doing the CAL a 15% discount on their website for their purchase… WOW.. Thank you Red Heart!!!  All you need to do is head to red and enter LOVECAL15 then you will receive 15%  off orders of E400 With Love between January 16 and January 31.


Another great bonus of joining the Crochet with Me.. Winter 2017 CAL… This year we have a Facebook group dedicated to making our mystery afghan!!!  It will be a place to post progress pics, ask questions and have a ton of fun.. I hope you will join in!!  Just Click Here and head over to Facebook… then Click the Join button and we will get you added!! Since I work a day job(lol) it may take a bit for me to catch all the approvals… But I would love to have a ton of us join!!

One more great thing…..
