What is a Crochet Along?
I get asked this question A LOT. Every designer has their own style and preferences for how to run their Crochet Alongs (CAL). As I am a new designer, my style is still in it’s infancy. I have been playing around with different techniques, trying to find what works best for me.
Now, back to the question. A CAL is basically when a group of crocheters all follow the same pattern at the same time and photograph different steps to send to the designer to be entered for prizes. Most designers will setup a timeline to be followed. Others will only release portions of the pattern at a time. No matter how it is done, CAL’s are a great way to interact with other crocheters of similar interests or to challenge yourself. All while having support from the designer hosting the CAL.
How CAL work with KMT Creations.
Again, my process is evolving as we learn what works best for us. For February, I am featuring a fun cowl design that is extremely textured and warm. My previous CALs have been hosted in a Facebook event in my Community Group. However, this month, I will be creating an album with graphics that will state the progess entry photo I will need. Each graphic will have an end date on it. Your photos will need to be submitted by that date in order to enter the giveaway drawing for that leg of the CAL.
