Fair Isle Snowflakes & Hearts Slouchy Beanie | Crochet Along | CAL

Hello Makers! πŸ€— It’s reboot season! While many of my new designs are in testing, I’ll be rummaging through some of the most popular patterns from last year and releasing them as free patterns, along with crochet tutorials to accompany them. I’m soooo excited about this! I’ve been meaning to do this for quite some time now, but you know how life does what it does. πŸ™ƒ

In December of 2018, I created a CAL group on Facebook, and invited some wonderful designers to join in. The Fair Isle Snowflakes & Hearts Beanie (mouthful I know!) was my very first CAL! Because we had so many designers in the group, my next scheduled CAL is not for another month or so.

In the meantime ⏲ – let’s do one here! I will create posts every week for the next 4 weeks. Each week, we will work through aspects of how to work the sections, and how many rows to complete. Of course, everyone will work at their own pace, but this will be a lot of fun 😁, so please πŸ™ invite your friends on over to join.

To keep up to date, please sign up for my newsletter here where you will receive notice when each post goes live 🧢

If you are landing here for the first time and may need to catch up – I’ve compiled all the posts on one page. Bookmark it and you can come back anytime you’d like :). – OR – you can click the subjects below, they will be updated as we work through all the weeks.

Please leave any questions in the comments below or you can join my pattern support group, but I’d prefer we keep the comments on the blog. Stardust Gold Crochet & Friends πŸ˜„

After this, we will work the companion scarf CAL, this one is a doooozy, and it may take some time, but well worth the effort for sure.

I really love the Fair Isle ❄ technique using crochet. It creates such a beautiful finished piece and also provides so much opportunity for using graphing programs to create any design you’d like!
