Hope in the Holidays

Hope in the holidays

How does it work?

After a successful turnout for the Spring CAL we have decided to host another Holiday themed blanket. This years theme was based upon the prompt ‘Home for the Holidays’. So from December 2nd until January 1st each designer will be presenting an 8×8 inch square with their own personalised design. All these squares can be combined together to create a blanket. You can use all of them, or a combination of your favourites to create an amazing heirloom. 

Each days featured designer will be giving their design away as a FREE PDF download. To get the free downloads you will need to visit this page each day of the month, where the pattern will be posted at 8am EST with the coupon code required to download their pattern. On each designers blog you will find the following button to lead you to their store.

Make sure you apply the coupon code in your shopping cart as prompted.

If you would like to get daily reminders for your squares you can follow this page by signing up to my newsletter and follow along on Instagram.

Supplies
To make it easier to follow along all designers worked from the same yarn palette. Some squares could include up to 4 colours, while others may have only 1.
We used Mighty Stitch yarn, which we were very lucky to have donated to us by We Crochet.

The colours chosen were as follows,

Black, Chocolate, Love Letter, Oyster, Silver, Spruce and White.

If you would like to join in the CAL, join the CAL group over on Facebook. This is where you can ask any questions you may have on the patterns and share your blanket progress. You can also Make along with us on Instagram using the hashtags #bearryeCALs #Hopeintheholidays and #bearrye . I will be sharing all your makes in my stories so everyone can make together!
