2020 Fiber Flux Spring CAL, Blue Skies Granny Tee, Week 1: Intro & Supplies

Welcome to the 2020 Fiber Flux Spring Crochet Along…yippee! Today marks week one of the CAL and we’ll be learning about the beautiful project we’ll be making…the Blue Skies Granny Tee!  This easy project is a fabulous piece for warmer weather ahead, and later when fall and winter comes back around you can layer it with long sleeves…definitely a four season garment!  We will be going over a few things today to begin:

  • Introduction to the project
  • Supplies
  • 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:

First things first…the supplies!

Materials Needed:

  • 5.0 mm “H” crochet hook
  • 3 Skeins of Caron Simply Soft (I used the “Country Blue” colorway) Don’t have this yarn on hand?  No worries…check out my Yarn Substitutions Guide here!
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors
  • Tape Measure

Let’s talk about sizing…we will be crocheting two granny squares designed to fit YOU.  Next week when we make the granny squares, we’ll learn how to make the square so it fits across the bust and has a good length too.  Later on in the CAL, we’ll also learn how to add some length to the tee too.  This is a very easy to customize project!

  1. Hi Jennifer! I am so excited for this one. I have 1,362 yards of Simply Soft, from my stash. Would that be enough for a man's large or should I get more?

  2. Hello there,

    I am excited about the CAL. Love your patterns; they are easy to follow and clear. My first project was a shawlette I made using "Larkspur shawlette".

    I tried opening the link to join the Facebook group, and it says "The link you followed may have been broken or the page may have been removed. Could you please check?
