A new year is like a breath of fresh air. With so many makers coming off of marathon craft show and gift making, it’s time to slow things down and make something just for yourself during this fun crochet event!
Say hello to Make It CAL 2021, a zero-stress crochet event for yarn lovers! Starting Tuesday, January 19th, casually crochet your favorite TLYC patterns for a chance to win some awesome prizes.
What is a Crochet-Along?
Essentially, a crochet along, or “CAL”, is an online maker party for crocheters around the world. We’ll all be working on projects at the same time and will share our progress on Instagram and Facebook. This will be the third annual Make It CAL and I can’t wait to get started!
This event runs January 19th – February 22nd, but you can hop in anytime. Pick any free or paid TL Yarn Crafts pattern, share your progress on Instagram and/or Facebook, and be in the running for awesome prizes.
You can make one project for the whole CAL, or pick several and work on them throughout the event. You can even pick up a TLYC work-in-progress that you might not have finished yet. #judgementfreezone

I’ll choose a winner each week from the hashtag and announce them in my stories. Only public accounts can be considered for the prize.
