Welcome to the 2019 Fiber Flux Fall Crochet Along…hooray! Today marks week one of the CAL and we’ll be learning about the beautiful project we’ll be making…the Autumn Farmhouse Throw! This project is perfect for the fall and winter seasons, as the chilly weather sets in! We will be going over a few things today to begin:

The CAL will be divided over the next few weeks, so we’ll tackle each part bit by bit. Scroll down for the schedule with actual dates and what we’ll be doing on each day/week.
