Welcome to the 2019 Fiber Flux Holiday Crochet Along…yippee! Today marks week one of the CAL and we’ll be learning about the special project we’ll be making…the Merry Little Advent Calendar! This project is a lovely seasonal project and makes a wonderful keepsake. We will be going over a few things today to begin:
- Introduction to the project
- Schedule of the CAL
- Where to connect with other makers
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.
*This is a self-paced project, so definitely go at the speed you feel most comfortable. The instructional videos and posts will be up forever and you will always be able to go back and watch again and again!
Here is a quick video introduction to the CAL and more information about supplies too:
